Oliver Heldens
Oliver Heldens was only 17 years old when the biggest record label in the dance industry, Spinnin' Records, approached and signed him. After years of practicing his passion, creating music in his own bedroom studio, dreams became reality when his track “Gecko” caught the attention of living legend Tiesto. He immediately fell in love with Oliver’s sound and decided to release it on his very own label, Musical Freedom. Now, only two years later, several releases, remixes and #1 chart positions later, Oliver has become one of the most desired dj’s in the world. 

Oliver is praised for his strong original ideas and melodies, created in his own world. His best melodies were invented while cycling back from school or while he sat in the classroom, being bored. He always stood out from the rest. Soon enough Oliver gained huge support from the biggest names in the scene. Worldly known DJ's as Hardwell, Tiësto, David Guetta, Pete Tong, Sander van Doorn, and many others gave Oliver their thumbs up. This stimulated the young DJ to create many more tracks and to keep doing what he loves doing the most creating new music.

December 30th became a memorable date: Oliver released his killer track ‘Gecko’ on Musical Freedom. It’s the track that caught everyone’s attention immediately. It’s funky and eclectic and full of tech house laced bass lines and percussive crashes. With a #2 spot in Beatport’s top 100, it was one way of making a grand entrance. After six weeks, ‘Gecko’ remained top 5 in Beatport’s Main Chart and #1 in its Deep House chart for over a month. And as if that wasn’t enough, Oliver kept going and reached the #12 spot on Beatport in January 2014 with his remix of the Martin Garrix smash ‘Animals’. Heldens also released his remixes of Robin Thicke’s “Feel Good” and Coldplay’s “A Sky Full of Stars”.

Also, his debut world tour couldn’t be better with appearances at EDC Las Vegas, Amnesia Ibiza, Tomorrowland, Mysteryland, Ushuaia Ibiza, Creamfields, and Electric Zoo Festival, to name a few. And his success story continues. A first glance of Oliver’s future status was when he hit last summer’s charts with “Gecko Overdrive” with Becky Hill. The vocal version of “Gecko” even earned him a #1 spot in the UK Official Charts. What a breakthrough year for this youngster!

After this enormous success, he released the highly anticipated track ‘Koala’ which ended up #1 at Beatport’s main chart and his latest release, a remix of ‘Can’t Stop Playing’ by Dr. Kucho and Gregor Salto earned him another #1 spot in Beatport’s main chart.

It’s safe to say that, with his upcoming collaboration with Sander van Doorn on ‘This’, Oliver cannot longer be ignored in the electronic music scene with his refreshing sound that acts as a bridge between EDM and underground.
