San Holo - Victory

The intricate synth work is noticeable from the very beginning as San Holo incorporates big bass for all the bassheads out there. In a sound that reminds me of Porter Robinson with a bit more bass, San Holo lays down one of my favorite bass tunes to date as he incorporates a huge beat that will have your head bobbing back and forth through the entire tune. This song is super repeatable and will surely be on everyone’s most played playlist, and there’s no question why. Just wait though, there’s more. san holo picture "Hold Fast" continues the bass and the intricate synth work as San Holo makes this a dreamy track to get your body moving even more than "Victory." With some booming bass, some haunting vocals and a melody that will grab everyone's hearts, this is a solid choice for best out of the 3. "Shrooms" is a step into the deeper side of future bass as he displays the heaviness of bass music in this track. From the beginning second, you can tell this has a different feel than the other two tracks. Something darker, heavier, maybe a little trippy is aloof in "Shrooms," and its awesome. The drop comes in and shatters normality as San Holo submerges you into his world. The bass smashes you in the face as he rides an impressive synthesizer melody over the bass that will make any basshead smile. Need some heavy bass in your life? This track is for you.
