Van Helden often remixes and uses samples of funk, soul, rhythm, blues and rap. He also uses filters and dub progressions, as in NYC beat, dancehall and reggae samples.
His greatest successes have been the remix of the song "Professional Widow" by Tori Amos, "My My My" featuring Tara McDonald (containing a sample of "Comin Apart" by Gary Wright), as well as "U Don't Know Me," (with a sample from Carrie Lucas "Dance With You") which is van Helden's own work and topped the UK Singles Chart. He also featured in "Bonkers" by UK rapper Dizzee Rascal, which also topped the UK Charts.
