Multi-faceted Canadian producer and arranger Hologramme is back with a new single ‘Slow’, released on the 30th of August 2023 via his own imprint Société Holographique de Montréal.Having accumulated over 5.2 million streams across all platforms, the enigmatic artist cannot be restricted to one genre. His music has featured in major films such as Jockey, alongside Aaron Dessner, a film which premiered at Sundance. He’s also appeared at the likes of Piknic Electronik (Montreal), and Timeless Festival in South Africa, alongside industry big-guns such as Royksopp and Tycho, as well as Montreal Jazz Fest in 2022 where he headlined to over 3000+ attendees. In addition to this, he’s performed in support of the likes of Fakear and Mome.
‘Slow’ is grittier and more ambitious for Hologramme, as he dives into the depths of his creativity to reveal his voice in an act of artistic vulnerability. Cinematic and well put together, it’s beautifully atmospheric, with a myriad of modular synthesizers and luscious, dreamy soundscapes evoking images of Tycho and Com Truise. Then, as the track progresses, the bridge emerges as the vibe gives way to intense drums and an acid-like arpeggio sequence. It’s experimental, unique, and distinctly emotional, pushing the boundaries of what we know about electronic production.
Speaking on the track itself, Hologramme had this to say: “With this new song, I reveal a new meaning to my music, something I’ve never done before. I’ve always been shy with my voice. Because of false beliefs, because I thought I had nothing to say. It only takes one heartbreak to write a good love song and hopefully, I’ve had a few. I have no intention of turning my career over, I just felt this song was meant to be and the lyrics came right at me. As a producer, it’s so liberating to know I can create the sound that I want with no restrictions. I have so much fun reinventing my art, I won’t stop, it’s my way of not getting bored.
