The four-track collection sees the genre-fluid producer explore hip-hop, club and experimental bass music in one cohesive release that showcases his hefty production chops. In typical Holly fashion, “Foreign” comes in hot right out of the gate featuring San Diego-based rapper Young Lyxx with additional production from Young Sidechain. This flawless feature cements his status as one of the pioneers leading the trending fusion of bass music and hip-hop.
Keeping things interesting, the Goldie Awards winner ventures into slimy bass territory with “Skeleton Beach” alongside up-and-comer NastyNasty, which is a certified dance floor destroyer for any bass aficionado.
Appropriately following is “Reflector” alongside Little Snake and Gino Serpentini with a minimal introduction and contorted drops that boast layers of perfectly distorted sound design and thumping drums. Finally, when you think you’ve heard it all, he drops a slow Portuguese ballad on you alongside close friend and prominent rapper Slow J.
Holly continues to release music at a prolific rate, with releases on Fool’s Gold, Monstercat, Dim Mak, Buygore and more under his name. His new EP, named after the city and postal code of his childhood Lisbon home, is out now on Deadbeats and marks an exciting chapter in his career.
“It feels great to finally release this EP! It’s a project that reflects a lot of my Portuguese roots and is also a tribute to the place where I come from. Hope you enjoy it!” – Holly
