Global Dance Festival Meet n' Greet Spotlight - Oliver Heldens
EDM.com is proud to announce the “Meet n' Greet” Spotlight series, a project dedicated to showcasing the biggest and brightest artists performing at this year's Global Dance Festival. These acts will also be attending our official "Meet n' Greet" sessions hosted throughout the weekend, giving fans the opportunity to take photos and speak with these artists before they perform. With only five days left until GDF kicks off, we begin our series by highlighting the works of 19-year-old house prodigy Oliver Heldens.
Oliver Heldens is not your average producer/dj. Since signing to the illustrious Spinnin Records at the age of 17, the Dutch producer has made waves in the SoundCloud community and beyond, garnishing attention from the likes of Tiesto, Pete Tong, and many more. His original single “Gecko” was picked up by Tiesto’s label Musical Freedom, where it has hit #1 on the UK singles chart, #1 on the UK Shazam chart, and was named Zane Lowe’s “Hottest Record In The World.” Other releases including his remixes of Martin Garrix’s “Animals,” Robin Thicke’s “Feel Good,” and newest original “Koala,” have also seen massive support from an array of talented house acts.
Oliver Heldens is also running a weekly mix series entitled “Heldeep” where he showcases a vast array of festival house, deep house, and tech house music. His latest installment to the series includes tracks by Chocolate Puma, Don Diablo, Alex Ross, and Sander Van Doorn.
Be sure to catch Oliver Heldens’ set at Global Dance Festival on Sunday, July 20th, and stay tuned for our "Meet n' Greet" schedule announcement later this week!
