At the end of 2017, San Holo abandoned an instrumental trip hop EP entitled The Trip. It was different from his usual work, designed as a kind of book holder for a stellar year and a treat for fans. This year, San has done it again. although, this time, the circumstances are a little different.
Rather than creating something out of nothing, San Holo remastered and reissued via bitbird some of the music that he had created when he started producing under the name Casilofi . [
"Casilofi is the first electronic project I've ever started to produce my own music," San says. "It really started when I had my laptop for the first time. A new world opened for me when I realized that I could record things myself and superimpose things. I did not need to rely on a group, I could handle everything. It's only my 100% creativity that really pleased me. "
All songs from the Casilofi project are described as having been composed "without studios, laptops, or home recordings" – an environment that every bedroom producer should be able to recognize. The new EP, Create, Create, Create, is a look at San's true beginnings and his artistic origin.
For big fans, it's likely that this glimpse into his past will give them a better idea of San's present. However, even for the rest of us, Create x3 is still only a wonderful collection of ambient and sweet music. Listen below.
