Rave music for a parallel universe. The British visionary James Holden fell for music at the turn of the millennium during his studies of mathematics at Oxford. Inspired by the works of the progressive club scene's pioneers such as Paul Oakenfold or Sasha and John Digweed, he released his first record that featured the trance anthem Horizons in 2000, which sky-rocketed his career.
Fast forward: two decades later, he returns with his long-awaited fourth studio album, Imagine This Is A High Dimensional Space of All Possibilities. "I wanted this to be my most open record, uncynical, naive, unguarded, the record teenage me wanted to make." Standing in contrast to the expanded band and live take recordings of its predecessor The Animal Spirits (2017), Holden's new album is a continuous sound collage on which he's artfully juxtaposing audio worlds in an inimitable manner. Holden draws from recordings of his own performances on the modular synth, keyboard, organ and piano plus the lesser explored drones of his childhood violin, cut-up bass guitar and overblown recorder, which he weaves with sophisticated rhythms of both acoustic and synthetic percussion, dancefloor melancholy and hazy vocals.
Live at MeetFactory on Saturday, May 13.
