Following his latest Fresh Blood release with his 2017 ‘Beijing’ EP, the Portugal-based producer Holly returns to the Buygore Records sub-label with a new sound. Recruiting fellow Fresh Blood artist Niveau Zero, “Are We Alone” is a fiery crossover of global influences from Portugal to France.
Holly is coming back stronger than ever in “Are We Alone?”; splicing together the multi-layered sound design Holly is known for while Niveau Zero’s harder edge delivers an industrial vibe to the track, these two are without a doubt a dangerous duo. The pixelating prelude leads into an oscillating build up calling attention to their experimentation with evolving styles. Out on March 20th, Niveau Zero and Holly come together in “Are We Alone?”
Frédéric Garcia, a.k.a. Niveau Zero, a true pioneer of French bass-music and co-founder the of Château Bruyant records, is an artist with various influences. With two albums and numerous EPs released by prestigious labels such as Buygore, Never say die, Uplink Audio, Rottun, Ad
Noiseam, DOOM Music, H.E.N.C.H, and Boka rec, Niveau Zero is continually touring across the
world — from Russia to the USA, from Liban to Mexico. He can be found playing acclaimed clubs like Berghain or Razzmatazz and famous festivals like Fusion, I LOVE TECHNO, Astropolis, les Transmusicales de Rennes, Le Printemps de Bourges, la Technoparade and Dream Nation.
Along with appearing on BBC1 and Rinse FM, he presents and promotes his own radio show on RINSE FRANCE. He is mixed and supported by major artists in the music scene like Figure, Dirtyphonics, Excision, Downlink, Skism and more. His latest EP, “00:00”, in collaboration with Krimer, The Unuk, XTRONX and released by Downlink’s imprint Uplink Audio is a genuine demonstration of power. Protect ya neck!
Despite hitting the scene a mere four years ago, Lisbon-based Holly has toured America, Europe, Australia, Africa and Asia stemming from a flood of releases on Buygore, Fool’s Gold, Dim Mak, Revealed, Spinnin, Circus Records, Monstercat and Division Recordings. Whilst earning steadfast support from the likes of Bassnectar, Baauer, Noisia, DJ Shadow, Martin
Garrix, Borgore, The Chainsmokers, Hardwell, Afrojack and Steve Aoki, he was featured in DJ MAG and Run The Trap as one of their ‘Top 25 Artists to Watch in 2018’. Holly has also won the prestige A-Trak beat battle “Goldie Award” in 2017. With a musical background stemming from Hip-Hop, DnB and all corners of the bass world, Holly’s live performances emote a balanced mix of raw energy, excitement and eclectic taste that’s helped him develop a loyal following around the globe.
You may already recognise the individualistic vocals of UK homegrown talent Harrison from previous collaborations with dance music royalty, but in 2018 he rips up the rulebook and stamps on conventions with a solo, self-assured style – then again, did you expect anything less from the candid vocalist behind hits with David Guetta, Steve Aoki and Hardwell?
Launching his own imprint Outlaw Records with bold productions that propel his poignant, raw vocals, on ‘Blinding My Vision’ Harrison lays out an ambitious path of future bass that merges with his vocal flair. Fuelling the excitement of his upcoming ventures and proving his passion in
stepping out solo, his sound is one that could only reside from a true artist taking control of his own destiny.
In his own words Harrison’s take on this new label venture is: “Outlaw Records is my way of stepping out of my sound and exploring a new path with my music. I’ve had the pleasure of sharing studio time and collaborating with some incredible artists on many of my previous releases and that’s been truly amazing. For me now, I want to put focus on my
own song writing and musical visions with my own label. I love collaborating and it will forever play a role in my music but being in the studio this past year I’ve felt I needed to express my abilities in a way that’s completely fresh. The music I’m making today feels more like the Harrison sound I’ve always wanted to create.”
Previously topping the charts in Holland and taking his own musical workings, remixes and collaborations to huge live events including London’s SW4, Ministry Of Sound and to sell-out headline Asian dates of his own, ‘Blinding My Vision’s course into accessible dance gets set to sound at home just as much on prime time radio, as it would at peak time in a capacity club or arena; make no mistake with Harrison’s Outlaw projects, his vision is anything but blinded…
Get your hands on ‘Blinding My Vision’ out now via Outlaw Records.

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are at it again, directing their talent down diverse avenues and breaking down barriers outside of dance music. With this combination with Quintino, ‘Patser Bounce’, the boys again show why they are two of dance’s most in-demand names, even outside of electronic music circles, blurring the lines between entertainment’s many facets. Teased out during the pair’s recent ‘Bringing The Madness: Homecoming’ shows, the track highlights its ability to work the crowd as well as form the backdrop for one of this year’s most hotly-anticipated Belgian films – ‘Patser’.
“Contributing towards this incredible movie by providing not just on the soundtrack but also as actors within the narrative was a huge honor for us. We have a great love for the big screen and when Adil and Bilall reached out and invited us to be a part of Patser it was a project we both jumped at. The entire team have created something really exciting which we think cinema goers are going to love. We’re really proud of the final cut and to see ourselves on the big screen in what is our first full acting role is something very special.”
