Dummy Mix 44 // Holy Other

16.09.10

Holy Other is a Mancunian musician based in Berlin and releasing music through Transparent. His tracks work at the weird end of bass and soul music, and feel like the slow cosh of a caffeine slump, with a bursting, orchestral soul underneath. Listen to the heartbreak mix on the right, and buy We Over/Yr Love on October 25th.

How’s life?

Sensual

Tell us about the mix.

It’s a bedroom mix for singles. Slow(er) jams + fragile dance tracks for pillow weeping sessions.

What do you have coming up?

I’ve got two releases coming real soon. We Over/Yr Love 7” on Transparent and a split cassette on SVN SVNS recs. Also got an EP in the works YUP.

What’s the scene like in Berlin?

Heard a lot of opinions about this, but i think it’s pretty fractured. The dance scenes are solid since Berlin is home to an insane number of producers and clubs – but the live scenes are mostly made up of expats who hardly intermingle. Hardly scenes really… Suits me cos i prefer to go places without feeling obliged to high-five everyone.

What’s your tip for visitors?

You don’t have to make plans to live here after having an awesome weekend at Berghain.

What’s your favourite colour?

Beige

Transparent will release Holy Other’s 7” We Over / Yr Love on September 25, 2010
