“I think too much, when I think about the future.”
San Holo’s lyrics are simplistic and deeply relatable, just as they were in his previous international smash hit “Light.” “Light” has accumulated over 61 million streams on Spotify so far, making it San Holo’s biggest release to date and earning the 26-year-old DJ, producer and bitbird label head worldwide recognition. “The Future” follows suit with Holo’s signature transcendent, dreamy and futuristic sound. This special track features exquisite vocals by acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow. James’ voice is haunting and sublime, lingering under your skin for hours after that first listen.
San Holo (Sander van Dijck) is one of the most rapidly growing artists in the electronic scene today. His first remix (“The Next Episode” by Dr. Dre) gained more than 130 million views on YouTube, and stands as his initial claim to fame. The Netherlands-born artist went on to further his career with various other remixes in his Don’t Touch The Classics series, which captured the attention and hearts of millions of fans. San Holo released his Cosmos EP in September 2014, drawing the eye of industry big-shots like Skrillex and Diplo. He then followed with the Victory EP release in May 2015, New Sky EP in March 2016 and the release of “Light” late last year.
James Vincent McMorrow began his career with his platinum-selling album Early In The Morning in 2010. This success was followed by the release of his Post Tropical EP, which was nominated for the Choice Music Prize and lead to sold-out shows worldwide. In 2016, McMorrow collaborated with Kygo for their stellar track “I’m In Love.” James releases his brand new album, We Move, in September.
San Holo has recently completed another extensive tour of the U.S., which included sold-out shows in Minneapolis, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Austin’s SXSW and BUKU Festival in New Orleans, where we got the amazing chance to interview him in person.
