Blending guitars and vocals, Dutch artist/producer San Holo creates a distinctive, forward-thinking style that places him high on the list of trailblazers in today’s electronic music landscape.
San Holo first got interested in music while driving around with his dad in their native Holland—but never envisioned himself as becoming an electronic music DJ. He developed an early affinity for guitar and punk rock—playing in bands at an early age—which led to him attending Codarts University of the Arts in Rotterdam for a music degree. And, while he went in to study the guitar, he couldn’t help sneaking into the production classes.
“I had so many ideas for making music and was getting tired of always looking for players to help fill the spots. I realized you are able to build entire songs around a laptop and that started my interest in production. I never walked into a club until my music started being noticed by people wanting me to DJ.”
In 2014, he took a friend’s advice and started adding his production skills to some classic hip hop songs, shapeshifting them into his own remixes and putting them up on YouTube.
He released his debut EP COSMOS on Heroic. Featuring anthemic singles “Fly” and “Hiding,” these tracks led fans to discover his re-working of Dre’s classic “The Next Episode”—which blew up on the blogosphere and SoundCloud community, launching San’s future in the process. The remix ended up garnering over 160 million YouTube streams, putting San on the map with his “Don’t Touch The Classics” series.
The release of his hypnotic single “We Rise” in early 2015 was another turning point, coming out on Nest HQ (OWSLA) and receiving Skrillex’s praise and attention. Later in 2015, he established himself as being at the forefront of groundbreaking bass music through the release of his Victory EP with Monstercat and singles “IMISSU” and “Can’t Forget You” with Spinnin.
Released in 2016, the track “Light” has hit over 100 million streams on Spotify—garnering traction and airplay throughout the global dance music ecosystem. Grateful and humbled by the groundswell of acclaim he is receiving for “Light” around the globe, San says the best is yet to come.
In 2018, San focused on writing his debut album for the first quarter only stopping to release “Right Here, Right Now”—which featured a stellar music video based around an obsessive fan— in advance of San’s performance at Coachella. From there, San honed in on finishing up album1.
Debut single “worthy / lift me from the ground” was released to critical acclaim in early August which kickstarted an intense eight-week roll-out culminating in the album’s release on September 21st via San’s own label bitbird. The album was a critical and commercial success appearing on multiple Billboard charts in the US while landing on a multitude of year-end lists from the media.
Back home in The Netherlands reception was just as warm with San achieving a charting album for the first time, major airplay on the radio, and even winning the coveted Edison Pop Award for Best Dance Album – the Dutch equivalent of a Grammy.
Following the release, San embarked on a nine-week North American headlining tour in fall 2018 which was followed by tours in Australia, Europe, and a return to North America spring 2019.
Refusing to take his foot off the pedal, San returned with two singles in 2019 – “Lead Me Back” and “Lost Lately” amidst a busy festival highlighted by appearances at Lollapalooza and Outside Lands.
