The young Dutch DJ/producer is at the vanguard of the new generation of house music artists with a No 1 record, hundreds of millions of streams, headline residencies and festival appearances to his name.
Heldens kicked off 2016 in fine style with his collaboration with Throttle, ‘Waiting’, hitting No. 1 on Beatport via his own Heldeep Records label and again demonstrating the continued demand for his ‘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 version as ‘The Right Song’ fronted by U.S. r&b star Natalie La Rose. Along with the massive Shaun Frank and Delaney Jane collaboration ‘Shades Of Grey’, it all sets the tone for his much-anticipated debut album.
His career has been a whirlwind of 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 on 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 Rudimental collaborator Becky Hill, with the record eventually receiving Platinum sales status. The follow-up 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 – with appearances at EDC, Tomorrowland, Glastonbury, Stereosonic and Coachella over the last few years.
As well as his globally broadcast Heldeep Radio sessions, he currently holds down one of the
rotation slots on BBC Radio 1’s prestigious Residency show. His residencies at Omnia Las
Vegas and Ushuaïa Ibiza also continue, placing him at the epicentres of the global DJ circuit.
