As much as Oliver Heldens is one of the most prolific and successful producers around, he is also a resolute perfectionist. Working tirelessly in his studio to craft new sounds and directions at every available opportunity, he’s a truly dedicated artist who refuses to cut corners.
His career has been a whirlwind of mind-boggling success since he signed to Spinnin’ Records in 2013 aged just 18. After a run of successful singles with the Dutch powerhouse, Tiësto picked up his massive Gecko, which became his major breakthrough track. Pete Tong’s FFRR imprint snapped it up and took it
to the UK No. 1 spot with a vocal from Becky Hill, with the record eventually receiving Platinum sales status. It also hit No. 2 on Beatport and stayed at No. 1 in their Deep House chart for a month, while follow-up Koala (Last All Night) hit No. 5 in the UK chart and achieved Silver sales certification. Remixes for Coldplay, Martin Garrix, Robin Thicke, Disclosure and Calvin Harris followed, and his tour diary continued to get busier and busier.
As well as being one of the most talented producers in the game, he’s also officially the world’s favourite house DJ. Landing at #8 in the 2016 DJ Mag Top 100, he was the highest house entry in the chart for the second year running. His residencies at Omnia Las Vegas and Ushuaïa Ibiza continue to place him at the epicentres of the global DJ circuit and keep him spreading his eclectic, high-octane sound to hundreds of thousands of clubbers throughout the year.
