Hailing from the Netherlands, Oliver Heldens is a electronic music producer. He found success in 2013 when he was signed onto Spinnin’ Records. His song “Gecko” made it to number 1 on DMC’s Magazine Buzz Chart. Oliver placed number 34 in DJ Mag’s top 100 of 2014. He was also named “One of the breakthrough producers of the year.” for 2014 by British radio DJ Pete Tong. In 2015, Oliver began producing songs under the alias of ‘HI-LO.’ Under this name he has created songs such as “Crank it Up”, “Wappy Flirt” and “Renegade Mastah.”
Unlike many other DJs, Oliver has employed his own mother as his financial advisor, making invoices and paying the bills. His mother has stated that Oliver enjoyed playing chess and other games along with making music, but once he found FL Studio his interests solely focused on music. He and his friends made a dance video of themselves when he was only 12. He signed his first contract at 17, his popularity at the time came from putting his music online and playing at school parties.
You can find HI-LO’s latest, “Ooh La La” on iTunes.
