Oliver Helden's bass-happy "Gecko" is without a doubt one of the finest house records released in 2013. In fact, alongside efforts by Disclosure, Duke Dumont and Clean Bandit, the track has helped to put deep house music back on the map. The 19 year-old Dutch DJ and producer is getting ready for a push in the pop charts with a flaming make-over of "Gecko" with the help of powerhouse vocalist Becky Hill and the infinitely-talented MNEK.

The latest edit "Gecko (Overdrive)," written and vocalled by Becky Hill during a late night recording session with MNEK, is being released by Parlophone's new dance imprint FFRR. Initially written for another vocalist, Becky's towering vocal on Gecko’s chorus was deemed the perfect fit. 

Signed to Spinnin’ Records when he was just 17-years-old, the Netherlands-born DJ/producer has also released the tracks "Stinger" and "Juggernaut" as well as creating remixes for Marin Garrix. This new version of "Gecko" is an equally amazing look for Becky Hill who was recently featured on Rudimental’s "Powerless" and Wilkinson’s drum and bass track "Afterglow" last year, Becky Hill has been very much in demand. She has also been writing and recording with a host of talented producers and musicians, gathering material for her upcoming album, released later this year on Parlophone Records.
