  1. Another excellent sort-of-post-dubstep EP from a relative unknown making use of thickly nocturnal synths with distant and obscured vocal samples.

    It's not just the hooks of the songs that make this EP so bewitching, it's also a prophecy for post-dubstep.

    With U feels fresh, new and mysterious.

    It's tricky to make music this mopey without sliding into shtick, but Holy Other pulls it off, balanced right on the brink of bathos.

    This Berlin-via-Manchester producer's debut EP blasts through not only genres, but the divide between the otherworldly and the physical, too.

    It is music with palpable warmth, not nearly as cold as your average techno track.

    t's a strangely affecting synthesis of sounds and marks Holy Other's short debut out as a darkly oppressive but ultimately rewarding piece of work.
