Podcast 074: Oliver Heldens

Making enormous waves since the release of his debut single, “Gecko,” Oliver Heldens has gone on to become one of the hottest names in the industry. Given the opportunity to mix the latest installment of Musical Freedom Radio, which encourages an open-format music policy, Oliver pays homage to the spirit of the past, opting for an hour of 70’s-influenced disco jams. 

Exploring euroclash and funk, the podcast features the hottest tracks by new and old names alike, with originals from Armand van Helden, Daft Punk, Diana Ross, Freemasons, Madonna, Martin Solveig, Michael Jackson, and Shalamar amongst many more. Heldens also includes extended cuts, long vocal versions and special edits, as well as the rare 1984 Bernard Edwards & Nile Rogers remix of Sister Sledge’s “Lost In Music”.

From underground house producer, to one of the world’s most sought-after artists, it’s clear that Oliver Heldens talent is unbound by mere genre. For Musical Freedom Radio’s 15th volume, Heldens knocks it way out of the park, delivering an impressive unexpected disco mix.
