Throughout the past few years there has been a rising phenomenon of young breakout producers in EDM. Years ago we were blown away by the likes of Porter Robinson, Zedd and even more recently Martin Garrix. This year’s breakout producer award certainly goes to 17 year old Dutch born Oliver Heldens. In the past year he’s managed to top Beatport charts multiple times with prized singles Gecko and Koala. In fact he’s sitting at #1 right now with his collabed remix with Gregor Salto of Can’t Stop Playing.
With more remixes well on the way, Heldens posted on Facebook that he’s currently in the studio with two all-star producers. Chocolate Puma and Netsky. First thoughts? The collaboration with Chocolate Puma is a match made in heaven but what is Heldens doing with Drum and Bass producer Netsky? Seems odd, but we’re looking forward to the Deep House/DnB hybrid sounding track.
