Oliver Heldens And Coming To Grips With Success [Interview]

oliver heldens interview

Introduction

Even with his recently grown shaggy beard and moppy brown hair,  Oliver Heldens is the kind of guy you’d want to take home to your mother because you know she’d approve.  He is incredibly polite and speaks with an occasional yet endearing stutter.  He can recite back all the positive feedback he’s received from other DJ’s about his biggest hit, Gecko, with unwavering confidence (like “whoa, this is good,” “supporting” “really refreshing track” and “so groovy, I like this”) but has trouble remembering where he’s going to be touring next (like for that “big Dutch thing” which he actually means the Amsterdam Dance Event).

But who can blame him?  After all, things are going really well for the young 19-year old Dutch producer.  Dance Music Northwest had the chance to sit down with Heldens before his set at Insomniac’s Beyond Wonderland in September.
