About San Holo
With his Don’t Touch the Classics remix series—featuring bootleg reworkings of songs by Blur, OutKast, Dr. Dre, and others—Dutch DJ and producer San Holo became a SoundCloud star during the future bass era.
• Before making his name in electronic music, San Holo taught kids to play guitar.
• In 2014, San Holo formed the indie label bitbird, which released his 2016 smash hit “Light.” The single's soft vocals, shiny toy synths, and exaggerated drops gave the artist his unique sound.
• Bored with the future bass formula, San Holo dug into his post-rock roots for his 2018 debut LP, album1. The LP featured prog-rock guitar, cassette-tape field recordings, and thoughtful use of dynamics.
• While touring behind album1, San Holo mixed electronic production with live guitar and singing. Soon after, he revived his lo-fi electronic project, Casilofi.
