Oliver Heldens Facts

  1. He played chess growing up and has “a full room of awards”.
  2. Early in his career, he was inspired by fellow Dutch DJs and producers, Fedde Le Grand and Sander van Doorn.
  3. Oliver revealed his best melodies came to him while he was bored at school or cycling home from school.
  4. Oliver did not focus on house music early in his career and preferred to do groovy/electro/dance/progressive songs. In 2014, DJ and producer Tiësto signed his track Koala (2014) to his Musical Freedom Label and re-released it with vocals, thus in a way forcing Oliver to change his priority.
  5. He founded a record label named Heldeep Records in 2015. His debut track on the label was titled Renegade Mastah, and released by HI-LO, a mysterious artist. Soon after, he revealed it was his alter ego and wanted to see how people would react if they didn’t know the artist’s true identity.
  6. He called his moniker HI-LO “his darker, edgy, stripped-back side” and the music he released “bassline driven and underground”. The moniker comes from his nickname “Oli H”, only reversed. Even his mom enjoyed his sets as HI-LO more than his Oliver Heldens sets because she “found herself in a trance and couldn’t stop dancing“.
  7. Oliver landed 7th spot on DJMag‘s list of “Top 100 DJs” in 2019.
  8. He stated that being a DJ was always the primary source of his joy, and producing, doing live performances, and signing other artists came secondary.
  9. Oliver has wondered whether there would be fewer deaths if MDMA and ecstasy were legal. He realized this would make the number of poorly-made drugs on the street drop significantly and thus save lives.
  10. Oliver is not the type of person that listens to entire albums. However, he can spend hours in a row discovering songs by underground artists.
  11. He had a pet guinea pig.
  12. If he had to plan the 1st date with a person he likes, Oliver would choose a trip to the zoo.
