Though there might be a massive clump of faceless electronic music producers clogging up dance music blogs across the world at the moment, it’s artists like Holy Other who particularly stand out.
It’s not only visually where the Manchester musician is impressive – with a stark, minimal image and a cloaked, veiled performance style – it’s aurally too: his deathly slow, mournful, sensual electronica (think Flying Lotus after a plate-smashingly bad breakup) is set to be a rather wonderful way to usher in the final days of summer in the city. Liverpool Music Week and Deep Hedonia bring him to the Camp & Furnace at the end of August, previewing songs from his forthcoming debut album ‘Held’, along with fellow labelmate Vessel.
