San Holo has teamed up with Bipolar Sunshine on his latest for some minimalist magic on “brighter days.” The track arrives San Holo’s own Bitbird imprint, with airy vocal textures and wistful low-fi production that perfectly soundtracks that bittersweet late summer feeling. The single is one of just a handful of new originals from the “Light” producer since his 2017 EP The Trip, as he ramps up promotion for his impending new LP, album1.
The song sees San Holo exercise a deft and delicate touch from the opening notes. Bipolar Sunshine knows his way around an electronic track, with past features on releases from Lane 8 and DJ Snake. His voice is the perfect costar to San Holo’s vibrant, relaxed production. Unlike past hits from the producer, the track offers no blasting sub or trap-influenced drop in a welcomed stylistic switch up. Vocal chops and warm 808s pack weight, without edge or aggression. When the rounded and echoing melody gives way to a kick driven chorus, it’s easy to picture this one fitting in perfectly to a laid back, grassy mid-afternoon DJ set.
