James Holden - The Idiots are Winning

The Uk based producer will release in the last days of november his debut album, a very subjective production. Some won't appreciate it, others will... i liked it a lot. It's a different kind of art. It flows through abstract and experimental music reaching some pleasant minimal techno patterns. This release - on Border Community - shows why James Holden is one of the most respected producers in the world. Lump, Idiot, Corduroy or Idiot Clapsolo are interesting productions with a high level of detail... just taste it
”What I want to do is make electronic music that feels more human and more live – just letting the machines malfunction and me be barely in control of them, you just need to know where to inject the life into it, and how to, and then the computer can become an instrument just like any other" says Holden.

tracklisting: 01. Lump / 02. Quiet Drumming Interlude / 03. 10101 / 04. Corduroy / 05. Flute / 06. Idiot / 07. Lumpette / 08. Intentionally Left Blank / 09. Idiot Clapsolo / 10. Quiet Drumming

10101 is my highlight - the build from machine to living creature is truly astounding. It's so unassuming at the start then about 3mins in that lift is sweet as.

If this is just an EP I so can't wait for the fully worked album to follow.
