Progressive Rock Meets EDM Defines New Music

Recording artist, DJ, guitar player and singer,San Holo today announced the double release of two tracks:  ‘worthy’ / ‘lift me from the ground’ which both premiered yesterday with Billboard

The outlet states; ““worthy” represents a gentler sonic approach, “lift me from the ground” plays dexterously with hard and soft.” The official tracks are available on all streaming platforms today, and have been accompanied by a music video for ‘worthy’

A full length album is set to be released later in 2018 through San’s label, bitbird.

San Holo describes the depth of these songs: “I wanted to release these two tracks together  because they are true companions. ‘worthy’ is the first song that came to me and I’ve written a lot of songs these last six months. Some songs, I just fell out of love with them, cut them out of the album or started changing parts. But this song, I  loved it from the beginning and that hasn’t changed.” 

He continues:  ‘lift me from the ground’ just goes hand in hand with worthy because while I don’t think ‘Worthy’ could chart as a “hit”, ‘lift me from the ground’  is like a very poppy dance track in the footsteps of my  previously released songs, ‘Light’  and ‘We Rise’.  After I added in guitars, it is really the  hybrid/transition to full electronic and this new sound that I am doing.”


San Holo continues his live touring schedule and will be performing this weekend at Osheaga Festival August 4th and HARD Summer August 5th, among other dates (See full Tour below). His touring set up will include a full Ableton for the first time, in addition to San’s use of the guitar and his live singing.


San explains, “I am always thinking into the future and this new music and the tour, I hope will stretch the boundaries within the EDM community to new levels.  Singing and playing guitar gives the set a stronger, livelier feel.” 

Kicking off on October 31st in St. Pete FL, San will be hitting over 30 cities during his North American Tour, where fans will be able to experience the sounds of his debut album. Tickets and VIP Package on sale now at

San Holo releases two new song from his upcoming LP album1 to be released later in the year.  DJ, Singer, Guitar Player and Lyricist, San taught himself to play guitar at an early age.  He has toured the world and has gained a credible reputation in the EDM world. In this next phase of his development San Holo is taking the inspiration he gathers from bands like Explosions In The Sky, Sigur Ros and very ethereal soundscapes, beautiful melancholic music as he takes a leap with new sounds and music.  He is motivated by the fact that he’s never found a way to get that kind of vibe into the EDM music he was producing until half a year ago, when he realized that he could use guitars instead of a synth and still make it into a drop and a buildup. San is no stranger to the Billboard Dance Charts, as his single “Light” soared to #13 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Chart.

Coming back full circle, San’s upcoming debut album to be released on his own independent label, bitbird, is the next step in his musical growth; he’s found a way both to build on the type of sound he has now, within the electronic/EDM field and also incorporate guitar back into his music from his band days, laying its foundations in almost every song on the album, while continuing to push forward electronic music. Sonically, the album showcases a more mature San Holo, who has taken all his experience within the electronic music scene and now transformed it into a refreshingly new direction to further the genre, and to continue challenging the possibilities of where his music can go.

The creation process took place all over the world; in between airports, touring, and life stuff. This gives the album more meaning as it describes how the past recent years have been like for San. He explains: “Four years ago, I felt like I was doing something different and new. We all know this future bass sound has been a little bit oversaturated over the years. Even though I know I have my own sound, I didn’t feel I was doing anything to distinguish myself enough from other people’s sound, and that’s always my aim, is to stay away from being compared to other producers. I never like being compared to someone else; it always happens but I never saw it as a compliment. I think a lot of this new sound came from a realization that the time was right to feel the way I did four years ago, to feel like you’re doing something new again.”
