Hollis Parker is a new talent from London & ‘What You’ve Done’ is the lead single from his forthcoming album The Last Raw Era is coming out on SoSure Music.

The Last Raw Era is themed around two distinct love stories: that evolving relationship between two fictional characters, and the entirely real emotion Hollis wears on his sleeve about New York, calling it “the foundation upon which I’m built”. A hazy melancholy informs much of the album’s tone, with obscure samples dusted off and given a new lease of life in songs that evoke the languid production of Moomin as much as the raw house cuts of the early US masters.

‘What You’ve Done’ is one of the stand-out cuts from the album: simultaneously heartbreaking and uplifting with a 4/4 structure that holds a myriad of samples, vocal snippets and atmospheric melodies in place.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
