James Holden
A Cambodian Spring OST

James Holden has created a synth based soundtrack for the documentary A Cambodian Spring. The film follows a group of activists fighting corrupt developers and officials as they try and protect their right to their land. Holden's soundtrack captures the intensity of their fight with tracks that veer between drone, trance and the odd arpeggio. 

James Holden + Maalem Houssam Guinia
Three Live Takes

What a combo: Maalem Houssam Guinia and James Holden; Moroccan Gnawa and modular synth. Three Live Takes presents us with three live cuts from a 2016 London performance, with these two very different sound palettes somehow combining into a coherent new sound-world. 12” out on Border Community.

James Holden & The Animal Spirits
The Animal Spirits

Electronics expert James Holden has expanded his Animal Spirits for a bold set of synth led folk opuses that fuse bits of psychedelia, kraut-rock, world jazz to create a genre blending opus that is also accessible. Sax, cornet, recorder and percussion have been introduced to the sonic maelstrom with Holden acting as band leader on an album that is sure to be highly anticipated. 

James Holden & Camilo Tirado / Luke Abbott
Outdoor Museum of Fractals / 555Hz

DJ, producer and Border Community label head James Holden pairs with artist and producer Luke Abbott for 70 minutes of trippy and minimal synthesizer drone. The two pieces on this double vinyl LP split (with download code) were composed for Terry Riley’s 80th birthday and fittingly are extended, improvised drones influenced by Riley’s hypnotic and percussive music.

Maalem Mahmoud Guinia, Floating Points & James Holden
Marhaba

Lovely stuff here from the one-off group of James Holden, Floating Points, and Moroccan Gnawa master Maalem Mahmoud Guinia (plus his band). Recorded next to a hotel pool, the session sounds remarkably open, no party seeking to dominate but only to integrate their styles. Four tracks, vinyl released by Eglo.
