James Holden - Triangle folds

After 4 years of silence, James Holden returns with his brand new single: "Triangle folds”. It will be released on the compilation "DJ Kicks" published by the German label !K7 Recordings. This compilation mixed by the English guy himself will be available from 24 May 2010. This mix, whose playlist is available in the following article, includes tracks by various artists such as Caribou, Mogwai or Kieren Hebden's collaboration with the prolific jazz musician Steve Reid. !K7 has already announced that the next edition will be mixed by Kode9 aka Steve Goodman and will be released the first day of the summer June 21, 2010.

Founder of Border Community, James Holden had remained quiet since his last album "The idiots are winning" released in 2006. The same year, he released too "At the controls", a compilation of an eclectic mix of tech house and indie tracks coupled to an experimental musical selection.
On this compilation "DJ Kicks", it had previously suffered the law of other masters of electronic music such as Carl Craig, Tiga, Chicken Lips, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Booka Shade and The Juan MacLean or for the latest version published in April. This compilation is probably the most famous series in the world. It was launched in 1995 and was first mixed by the C. J. Bolland, well known for his song "Sugar Is Sweet" which hit the British and American charts of electronic music in 1996.

As for the track "Triangle folds" it consists of different elements that made the success of James Holden. It displays mainly all of the trademark Holden musical perversions: loose, live-feeling rhythms, quirky time signatures and the bare minimum of pandering. Quiet dark, it offers psychedelic and hypnotic samples, in a soft atmosphere, we must be confessed. Indeed, no big beats on the horizon, but rather a posed atmosphere, in which we travel. The whole composition gives birth to a joyful and delightful techno track. As James Holden said about this track: “It is all about catching a moment”.

Finally, note that the track was released on a dedicated opus with another track "Triangle folds in on itself" evolving in a similar mood, a bit more punchy but still eclectic. To better promote these sounds, James Holden offer them for free on a specific web page: "James Holden DJ Kicks - Get the exclusive track"
