If you haven’t heard already, New York City is going to have a huge week at the closing of 2015 and begin 2016 with a bang. Who else better than to close 2015 then to have Knife Party and Holland’s very own Oliver Heldens. Pier 94 has always been a legendary venue to close the year out for any artist. Hardwell, Armin Van Buuren, Alesso and so many more have played at New York City’s Pier 94 and now Knife Party and the Dutchman will have their chance to grace the stage for the first time.
The Australian duo made of Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen have been around for quite some time now. They first started out performing in bands early in their career where the band was named ‘Pendulum.’ They also created Knife Party as a side project for other kinds of music. In 2011, they then debuted their first ever EP and from that point on dance music became their bread and butter. ‘Rage Valley,’ ‘LRAD,’ and their most noticed track ‘Internet Friends‘ all made huge impacts across festivals all around the world and got massive support from all of the top artists. Now that 2015 is coming to a close, Knife Party will definitely have something new up their sleeves for 2016 so be on the lookout.
Well what can you really say about Mr. Heldens other than his name has exploded in the matter of a year. The kid from Rotterdam is one of the biggest deep house names in all of electronic music at the moment. His first single ‘Gecko‘ caught the eye of the legend Tiesto and the track was later signed to Musical Freedom. From that point on he never looked back producing the signature Oliver Heldens tracks such as ‘Koala,’ remixing Dr Kucho’s ‘Can’t Stop Playing,’ and his most recent collaboration with Tiesto called ‘Wombass.’ He has played at almost every major festival in the world and since his name has gotten so much recognition he decided to create his own label called Heldeep Records. By the looks of it, his record label will get loads of the newest deep house tracks around and for 2016 the future looks bright for the young Holland star.
