While the typical twenty year-old spends their days lounging around, hanging out with friends, or studying in school, Oliver Heldens is putting his mind and energy into one thing – creating stunning music. Hailing from the Netherlands, Heldens exploded onto the scene in 2013 with “Gecko,” and the young Dutch phenom hasn’t looked back since. In just a couple of years, Heldens has shown the world his indisputable talent in the studio, as he’s garnered an unprecedented 5 Beatport #1 singles, as well as a BPI Certified Gold single – all before he can legally drink in the States. Heldens’ remixes and his collaborators reads like a “who’s who” list of dance music – Sander Van Doorn, Zeds Dead, Martin Garrix, Mr. Belt and Wezol – but now, he’s teamed up with the Toronto-based producer, Shaun Frank, and vocalist Delaney Jane for his latest output, “Shades of Grey.”
Heldens and Frank both boast unique future house styles, and both their styles manage to shine through in their collaboration. Shaun Frank’s four-to-the-floor house vibes mesh perfectly with Heldens’ signature future house style, and Delaney Jane’s catchy vocals perfectly complements the stunning production. “Shades of Grey” is a surefire summertime hit, so check it out below!
