Certified Awesome | Oliver Heldens x Mr. Belt & Wezol – ‘Pikachu’

Winding down for the evening, I decided to read the latest issue of DJ Mag, which features rising producer/dj Oliver Heldens on the cover.

At only 19 years old, Heldens has been making quite a name for himself with his “future house” sound. While many debate what genre he falls into, overall Heldens creates music that has an upbeat groove with the right bpm that classifies it as some genre of house music.

So whether you call it future house or deep house or UK house, once thing for certain is many (including myself) are becoming fans of Mr. Heldens and his productions. Good stuff! :)

He’s got a lot of good tracks such as “Koala” and “Gecko,” and he’s even got a podcast on iTunes, but my favorite track is “Pikachu.”

Perhaps because it pleases my nerdy appetite, “Pikachu” is a quirky dance number with production support from Mr. Belt & Wezol.

Not only does the track speak to all our inner geeks, but it’s a dance floor killer that has received major support from dance heavyweights such as Hardwell, Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Bingo Players, Diplo, and many more.

Give it a spin:

Certified Awesome | Oliver Heldens – ‘Heldeep Radio #007′

In my attempts to wind down from a great weekend, I stumbled across this heavy dosage of deep house & EDM from Oliver Heldens. 

Hailing from The Netherlands, Oliver Helden’s is a DJ with a wicked good podcast/mixtape series titled “Heldeep Radio.” And his latest mix, #007, is jam-packed with some infectious cut that will have you dancing like a maniac!

I must say, after listening to this mix I’ve got this strong urge to hit up a dancefloor in DC. It’s been awhile since I’ve been seen at 18th Street Lounge or U Hall, so I think next weekend I must support the local house scene.

But I digress. All I’m saying is this mix from Oliver Heldens is certified awesome and you really need to give it a listen…now!

Heldeep Radio #007

Here are some of the best tracks from the mix. The good stuff:

Twenty Feet Down – When You Need Me (Original Mix)

Sam Smith – Stay With Me (Throttle Remix)

Marshall Jefferson – Move Your Body (Tchami Tribute)

Okay, it’s official: Sonos is pretty sweet. Now I will admit I haven’t used their sound system, but after vibing to the trap music in their latest commercial, I’m sold on checking them out!

I’ve seen the commercial about 4 times, yet I still had no I.D. on the track playing throughout the house. Well, now I do!

The song in the Sonos “Face Off” commercial is by N.A.S.A. and it’s called “Hide (TropKillaz Remix.)”  And while some trap song can be really annoying, this one actually is pretty good and makes me want to get super hyped in a club.Oh yeah, I’m gonna be needing to hear this one on a dancefloor ASAP!
