Every once in a while you come across a rare trailblazer like the young Dutch DJ/producer Oliver Heldens who stands out from the crowd with his own distinctive sound. A genuine superstar counting No. 1 hits and hundreds of millions of streams to his name, he is at the vanguard of the new generation of house music stars.
Heldens’ 2016 kicked off in perfect fashion with his rampant collaboration with Throttle, Waiting, hitting No. 1 on Beatport via his own Heldeep Records label and again demonstrating the continued hunger for his so-called ‘future house’ sound. It’s another cut that shows his skill in working with powerful vocals, and followed on from the immense success of Tiësto collaboration, Wombass, which was subsequently reissued in a vocal form as The Right Song with a little help from Natalie La Rose. Along with the massive Shaun Frank and Delaney Jane collab Shades Of Grey, it all sets the tone for his much-anticipated debut album which is set to stun when it finally sees the light of day.
