San Holo – show me

San Holo has just released his much-anticipated record “album1” featuring the song “show me”. Opening with bright arpeggios and faint tape noise, the track expands into a vibrant atmosphere with smooth vocals sailing over everything. When the beat comes in it moves everything with a mellow energy that builds around every melody before breaking into an ethereal drop. San Holo is on another level and “album1” (produced entirely in an Air BnB in Echo Park) showcases everything that we’ve come to love about this internationally adored artist.

In his words:
I wanted this album to introduce people to a new kind of sound. A warmer, organic, and less polished version of EDM. ‘show me’ is a good example that represents this new sound. I recorded a lot of guitars on cassette tape, to give it that warm, warbly, lofi sound. You can clearly hear this in the guitar intro of the song. The beauty of recording actual instruments on tape is the fact that you can never record the same thing twice.” -San Holo
