Oliver Heldens premieres Ibiza 77 Mixtape Vol 2

A pioneer of the future house genre currently dominating mainstages worldwide, Dutch producer and DJ Oliver Heldens is famed for both his own melodic, house beats, and his darker techno-led HI-LO alias. Having released a flurry of hits in 2017, one of Oliver’s most universally acclaimed mixes came in the shape of his Ibiza 77 mixtape.

Now, the Rotterdam-born producer has returned with a brand new Mixtape! The Ibiza 77 (Vol 2) mix includes some of his freshest tracks, including new HI-LO & Dada Life collab ‘Love Vibrations’ as well as brand new HI-LO tracks, and a collaboration with Zonderling.

Having revealed to We Rave You in an exclusive interview at Creamfields 2017 that he likes to engage fans on his tracks to get an idea of what sounds they’re really digging right now, Oliver has enjoyed stellar success since his 2013 breakthrough anthem ‘Gecko’ which later received a vocal from Becky Hill. He has played at the mainstages of several of the world’s biggest festivals, including EDC Las Vegas, and Tomorrowland, and will take to Miami Music Week this year for his special Heldeep Vs Monstercat party.

The half-hour mix contains further hits from the likes of UMEK, Wolf Story, and Marlena Shaw, and can be heard below.
