Olga Heijns drifted into the music industry just by virtue of going out and getting to know people, at a time when there was no real career path in dance music. Yet even before her current role (which includes managing Laidback Luke), she held positions at Sony Music, SoSoDef and Mushroom Records, forging a unique path for herself.
For the past 17 year, she’s been super-successful as the founder and CEO of Mixmash Records, Syndicate The Agency, and Unmanageable Artists. Her career has taken her halfway around the word (she did a stint in Australia), and through many highs and lows, including a public business falling out with Roger Sanchez. She talks frankly about all of this in this revealing and valuable episode of Tales from the Dancefloor.
