One of our favourite producers, San Holo, returns with colourful single, One Thing.
It’s been almost a year since the release of San Holo’s career-defining single, Light. Having most recently kicked off his North American tour, San Holo returns with a sonically-challenging and unforgettable single for familiar and new fans alike, ‘One Thing,
Many of San Holo’s tracks take simple musical themes and flawlessly expand on them throughout the listening experience. In the same vein, One Thing begins with a cyclical, harpsichord-reminiscent melody that quickly transforms into a seamless kaleidoscopic mesh of progressive synths and percussion, showcasing the imaginative skill that San brings to his brand of emotional dance music.
As San Holo explains: “The song ‘One Thing’ is an exact translation of how I feel most of the time. When I’m supposed to stand still, I still feel like I’m running, chasing after something. Restlessly wandering around because I’m too focused on what is to come, instead of being content in the moment. It’s a reminder for me to enjoy the now, even though there’s so many goals I have set. It’s about the realisation I’m never really able to reach my goals because they’re always changing.”
“If you’re chasing your dreams, you’ll never stop chasing. This song is a reminder to take a step back and enjoy the moments from time to time, cause that’s all we really have.”
