One of dance music’s fast-rising stars, Oliver Heldens, graced the decks of BBC Radio 1’s Diplo & Friends for a brilliant future house mix. With his latest single, “Last All Night (Koala)” still taking over the radio as well as an unprecedented five Beatport #1 singles to his name, Heldens has accumulated a slew of accolades and doesn’t seem to show any signs of slowing down in 2015.
His hour-long mix for Diplo & Friends highlights some of the best that the future house genre has to offer. Opening with his collaboration with Zeds Dead, “You Know”, Heldens keeps the pressure on the entire mix, barely giving you a second to catch your breath before guiding you back into another groovy house tune. The mix features cuts from up-and-coming producers like JAUZ and Curbi, while also highlighting house veterans like Umek. Heldens drops two surprise IDs in his mix as well, so make sure to keep an eye out for those.
