Oliver Heldens: Game soundtracks are 'huge' for musicians

Oliver Heldens has said artists working with gaming companies is "huge".

The music video for the DJ's latest song, Good Life, is a collaboration with Ubisoft to mark the release of their action-adventure game Watch Dogs 2.

"Gaming is huge, its definitely a good way to reach new fans," he told Newsbeat.

"I make music for myself but having it on a really big game can get to people who would never hear my music."

The partnership came about when Ubisoft approached Oliver's record label looking for a track to feature in the game.

Despite suggesting musicians "don't really focus on making music for something else", the DJ said he'd be "open" to collaborate on more projects like it in the future.

For now though, Oliver said he's focused on making "a lot of new music".

"I've been working with a lot more singers but the stuff I'm making is still club and festival orientated."

The 21-year-old has a string of top 10 singles under his belt having worked with the likes of Tiesto and Becky Hill.

He's set on working with more vocalists, and has managed to catch the attention of a Chic legend Nile Rodgers, who has also recently worked with Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams.

"He was my number one to collaborate with and we're working together on something right now, which is really exciting.

"I don't know when it's going to be released, it might take another year."
