Oliver Heldens Launches New Record Label, Reveals His Mystery Alias

Since the wildfire success of “Gecko,” Oliver Heldens has managed to stay at the forefront of popular dance music through his many chart-topping tracks, main stage performances and his Heldeep radio show. Now, the young producer is launching his own record label.

Launching Heldeep Records is a surprising release: Heldens has confirmed that he is the producer behind the mysterious HI-LO moniker who debuted last month via Mad Decent single “Crank It Up,” and he, under the guise of the new alias, will provide the inaugural single, “Renegade Mastah.”

The track, built around a vocal sample from Wildchild’s 1995 hit single “Renegade Master,” follows the same high-energy style as “Crank It Up,” a contrast between a heavy, sub-bass growl and lighter, metallic elements that gives new meaning to “high” and “low.”

Using the label as an extension of his radio show, Heldens aims to spotlight up-and-coming talent, furthering the careers of artists such as his own protégé Curbi. Fans can also expect more new releases from Heldens himself as he continues on a busy tour path and cultivates a reputation for his newly revealed alter-ego.

Listen: Sasha Presents the Premier Episode in His New Podcast Series

UK veteran Sasha has been active lately. While his current releases “Vapourspace” and “Ether” are climbing the Beatport charts, Alexander Coe has just launched the first installment in an ongoing Last Night On Earth podcast series.

Kicking off the premier episode, Sasha delivered a slow-burning live set he recorded at this year’s Miami Music Week during his 13th annual Last Night On Earth boat party. In addition to the absolutely epic 90-minute mix, he captured short interviews with fellow sunset cruise selectors Subb-an, Joel Mull and Hunter/Game.

“I’ll be doing this once a month and I’ll be bringing you the best mixes from my recent tours, playing you new releases from my label and showcasing some exclusive tracks and edits from me,” he said about the new series, via his Facebook page.

The Beatport Chart Report: Who’s New at Number 1

From the Top 100 to the individual genre rankings, the Beatport charts never stop moving. Every Tuesday and Friday, veteran dance writer Michaelangelo Matos will examine the big hits, big moves, and hidden stories from Beatport’s rich data trove, in the moment and in history.

THEY’RE NUMBER ONE      

As the end of the year gears up, pop music’s big guns start issuing their big titles. Dance music, as usual, does things differently—there’s little letup any time of year, but the big anthems typically hit in the spring, just in time for festival season, and lay lower during late fall and winter. Nevertheless, two of this week’s genre charts have new number ones at a time when the rest have a top spot staying largely still.

It’s probably unfair to say that the Skrillex and TrollPhace remix of Yogi’s Pusha T-assisted “Burial” is a “new entry,” exactly. For one thing, the original version of the track dates back to March. For another, it actually made the Dubstep chart a week ago: On November 14, it was number 9. But that was on a mere one day’s release (it came out on the 13th), so we can fudge it.

Today, the remix from the OWSLA boss and his protégé is number one on the Dubstep list, as well as number 96 on the overall Beatport Top 100. And the remixes EP from which it stems is generating other chart action as well: the Moody Good remix is number 10 on the Electronica chart, while the EP is Number 88 on the Top 100 Releases.

No one can be surprised that Andy C is dominating the Drum & Bass track rankings – the Ram Records founder is one of the style’s great names. His new “Heartbeat Loud,” with Fiora, released November 16, occupies numbers 1 (for the “Andy C VIP” mix) and 3 (for the “Extended Version”) of the D&B list.

Curiously, the full Heartbeat Loud EP (which also contains an instrumental as well as a deep house version by Anime Edge and DANCE) is only number 12 on the D&B New Releases chart, suggesting people are buying this one by the piece rather than as a whole. (The instrumental, by the way, is 56th on the D&B Top 100.)

SLOW AND STEADY

Christian Nielsen’s “Do You Mind,” on Play It Down, is the kind of spare, vocal-driven tech-house track that can slot into all kinds of sets – early evening, peak hour, early morning – and that multi-functionality is reflected in its patient rise up the Beatport Top 100.

Released October 13, by November 3 it had made it to number 70. On the 8th, it rose to number 44; then to 38 on the 11th; then to 28 on the 14th. Today, it lands at number 20. Just as impressively, it’s also made some 64 Beatport DJ charts, most notably those of Jesse Rose, Oliver Dollar, Umek, and Mr. V.
