Oliver Heldens

Oliver Heldens marks ‘HELDEEP 250’ with New York special

When a fresh faced Dutch sensation called Oliver Heldens burst onto the scene in late 2013 with hit single ‘Gecko‘ (later reworked into the vocal version ‘Overdrive’, which became a UK number #1), few could have imagined the impact he would have on dance music. Becoming a pioneer for the future house movement alongside fellow producers Don Diablo and Tchami, Oli has since played on the biggest stages all across the world, playing mainstage sets at EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Miami, Creamfields, and Tomorrowland.

Bringing his HELDEEP Records label to the latter in recent years, where he has curated his own stages packed with talent, Heldens’ iconic imprint has now turned 5 years old. With Oli kicking off his weekly Heldeep Radio podcast in 2014, the show celebrated a special landmark this weekend, with the 250th edition of the broadcast. To mark the occasion, Heldens delivered a very special LIVE performance in New York, where he was joined by special guests including Valentino Khan.

Marking a quarter of a century of episodes, Heldeep Radio has become one of the most influential shows in dance music, and as you can expect, the tracklist for this latest episode (photos below) was pure FIRE! Be sure to catch the full episode when it drops later this week!
