Everyone knows San Holo has the future bass sound down, but he is not about to be pigeonholed as any one genre in particular.
His latest single “The Future” cultivates a fresh sound from a variety of influences. Singer James Vincent McMorrow gives a silky-smooth performance good enough for any modern R&B tune. That bedroom style is reflected in the subtle production anchored by guitars that builds into clapping percussion and electronic touches. Big drums and synths signal the dance-pop hook, and more clear guitars tie everything together.
The song plays out with choppy textures and amped-up electronics with dance-pop appeal, and finishes with a bit of rock 'n' roll flair. It's a cool blend of sounds Billboard Dance can get behind. Listen to it below.
