Oliver Heldens returns to the Essential Mix as HI-LO

Item Image

To be tapped for an Essential Mix at any age is a highly prestigious honor – indeed, there remain many veteran DJs who still have yet to step behind BBC Radio 1’s hallowed decks. It’s fair to say that Oliver Heldens has just achieved a historic feat in the program’s history this weekend, providing his second Essential Mix at the age of 22. In 2014, as he was pioneering the then-burgeoning future house genre, the prodigious Dutch producer debuted on the series at just 19.

For his sophomore contribution to the program, Heldens dons his HI-LO alias, the project through which he purveys music of a more deep house, electro, and techno-influenced character than his standard fare. As his alter-ego, the Heldeep label-head delivers a mix that explores a variety of energizing club music from eclectic roots. Recognizable vocals from Beastie Boys’ “Intergalactic” and Justin Timberlake’s “SexyBack” play as important a role in the overall set as the selections from contemporary techno mainstays such as Mark Reeve and Pig&Dan.

Throughout the broadcast, Heldens also pays homage to some of dance music’s most esteemed veterans, including classics from Mr. Oizo, Orlando Voorn, and Richie Hawtin. Amid his eclectic set, the artist further features a number of songs from both of his projects’ catalogues, perhaps most notably with his Sander van Doorn collaboration, “WTF” (a modernized take on Fatboy Slim and Benny Benassi’s beloved “What The Fuck”).
