Shaping up to be one of the most influential contemporary electronic producers in the game, San Holo returns with passion and innovation with, “Show Me,” from his celebrated album1. The Dutch producer fuses glistening dance music with indie rock. Layering the electric guitar atop future-bass reverb, San Holo is a pioneer of a new wave of dance music. Breathing organic instrumentation into feel-good, digital production, “Show Me” is set to be a staple in his wildly influential career. This outline of righteously syncopated resonance stands as a testament that San Holo will never settle. Straddling the boundaries of experimental electronic and alternative dance music, “Show Me” is nothing short of stunning. The ever-evolving San Holo’s album1 is available now on all major streaming platforms- join us as we listen to the sounds of history being made with this charismatic manifesto of sounds.
The Dutch producer came in real hot with not just one, but two singles that give us a bit of insight as to what’s to come in his next album. One of the two songs I want to shine a light on is “Lift Me From The Ground.” Featuring the heavenly, breathy vocals of Sofie Winterson, San’s production compliments her voice exquisitely. He infuses the song with the same energy that is signature to the San Holo brand, combining intoxicating melodies live guitar elements and scattered, sparkling synths. Any and all listeners will surely feel elevated as soon as they lend their ears to "Lift Me From The Ground."
The San Holo-founded bitbird label has been on a serious roll since it was started in 2014. They've been signing young musical visionaries left and right who are indisputably paving the path towards the future for electronic music. An example of one of these power players is Dutch artist Deon Custom. He recently released his single "With You," which comes with much variegation as it pulls elements from multiple genres such as chill, indie, lofi, experimental and electronic. The song gives way to a psychedelic journey as it delicately weaves intermittent waves of both dissonant and constant harmonies through a down-tempo beat and a spectrum of glitchy synths. To say the least, I'm definitely looking forward to hearing what else Deon has in store for 2018.
