San Holo just released a massive album called ‘Album 1‘ and it’s stacks with 12 amazing tunes.
Calling the album an emotional trip, San Holo intends for the project to usher him into a new era of sound and production. He expanded his use of live instrumentation in recent works.
“I felt like I wanted to tell a longer story with this thing,” says the musician, born Sander van Dijck. “You can tell a small part of a story with a single, maybe an EP, three or four tracks, but to tell a real long story in depth, I need more tracks. That’s what album1 came to be.”
“I used to write on guitar already, but then I would translate it into a synthesizer or, like, an electronic sound,” he explains. “A couple of years ago, I got bored with playing guitar a little bit and I started producing electronic music, which is when the San Holo thing started, which was very electronic, very beat-driven. Over time I started listening to guitar again, and that’s why you hear a lot of guitars on this album.”
The idea for this album came out while he was in LA six months ago. Avoiding traditional promotion and release schedules, he wanted the record to represent where he is in life. To achieve that goal, he had to be spontaneous.
From this Album 1, he tells a story and as he reveals, a 12-song collection was necessary.
So nice to see his evolve in music and this ‘Album 1‘ stand out very well musically. Listen to the full album below.
