In his youth, Nick Holiday was adopted from Lebanon by a Greek Arabic family, who would lay the foundation for his passion-based pursuits. Later on, Holiday’s eventual proficiency on guitar led him to put his education on hold. He dropped out of college to then form a band, the Chase, and experience moderate success, only to return to his studies with concentrations in film scoring and sound design. It was by these niches that Holiday began experimenting with electronic music. He would soon expand upon his artistic proficiency as a DJ and producer, thereby crafting an identity all his own.
Holiday’s latest single, “Red Summer,” which drops tomorrow, is the utmost example of these talents thus far. The song’s future bass-laden groove proves a contending force on electronic grounds, especially with its integration of subtle and smooth supporting textures. Like a lot of releases, I tend to associate their stylistic elements with those of their album art. The correlation ends up working well in that respect, each aspect emitting an allusion to what’s commonly deemed the hottest time of the year. Once this track is released, listeners will surely have a memorable summer jam to commemorate the year.
