Oliver Heldens (born February 1, 1995) is a producer from the Netherlands.

Heldens produces mainly deep house. He also has a radioshow named Heldeep.
Later collaborations include “Panther” with ‘Robbie East’ which was released on the Oxygen label on the December 2nd, 2013.
The single “Gecko” was released in the same month on DJ Tiesto’s Muiscal Freedom record label and peaked at number 1 on the DMC Magazine Buzz Chart and was name “Essential New Tune” by BBC’s Pete Tong on January 31st 2014.
In January 2014, Heldens launched his Heldeep Mixtape on his official soundcloud page, creating extended mixes which incorporate different genres of electronic dance music including different types of deep house and tech house.
The first mixtape included his remix of label mate, Martin Garrix’s “Animals” which was largely well received by the press who described the new version as, “leaving us with a completely new anthem with a notable melody left intact.”
