James Holden to Return With New Album



It’s been a long 7 years since James Holden released his astonishing debut album ‘The Idiots Are Winning’ and fans of the academic Border Community boss have been left waiting hungrily  for a full length follow up ever since. Thus it is with great excitement we can reveal the release date for the sequel to ‘The Idiots Are Winning’ has been announced as June 17th and taking its name as a reference to celebrated author William Golding, is to be entitled ‘The Inheritors’.

In the past 7 years  the influence of Holden has grown massively, particularly within the UK electronic landscape wherein James has firmly embedded himself as one of our proudest exports both as a producer, DJ and label boss as he helms the now revered Border Community imprint. Helping launch some of the UK’s most prodigious talent including Nathan Fake and Luke Abbott his label has left an indelible mark on electronic music and such is why the confirmation of a second full length effort by James has caused such commotion amongst those in the electronic scene. His own releases are scarce, as are his output as a remix producer as remix roll call over the past six years whilst short is telling with illustrious names such as Radiohead and Caribou being reworked by the Border Community boss.

Always a singular character with a tangential ear for sound and a deep appreciation of the importance of the art within music beyond its sonic qualities Holden has woven a rich aural tapestry leading to the production of electronic music as explorative as anyone is making today. So with suitable fanfare including a free download of a track from the upcoming work which can be found below, we await the rest of the upcoming album with baited breath…

Grahame Farmer

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.
