Doug Fir

The album cover for Manchester producer Holy Other's latest release, Held, is a stark portrait of a lovers' bed left unmade—fittingly brooding without being melodramatic, just like the music it depicts. Within Held, minimal beats combine with chopped R&B vocals drenched in reverb, resulting in a very singular and cohesive album with a distinct down-tempo style. Dark-wave synths serve as the backdrop to the airy fore of emotion and unrequited promises in the sampled vocals, tinged with a warped romanticism and insatiable longing for human contact. With a rather maximal approach to a minimal production format of electronic music, Holy Other's excursions within the post-dubstep realm brings it closer to the genre-bending experimentalism of contemporary producers like Clams Casino or Balam Acab, rather than the lo-fi garage style of tonight's headliners, Mount Kimbie.
