With U EP
Critical Mass
Release Date: June 7, 2011
Label: Tri Angle

by Marc Hogan

Indie rock, R&B, electronic dance music, and hip-hop have all been converging in pretty fascinating ways lately, but Holy Other is on some whole other planet. With pitch-shifted vocal samples, yearning synths, and shuddering bass, this Berlin-via-Manchester producer's debut EP blasts through not only genres, but the divide between the otherworldly and the physical, too. Imagine if the flickering techno of the Field, the foggy rumblings of Burial, and the warped R&B of How to Dress Well or the Weeknd all headed toward someplace new. Your move, James Blake.
