Glimpse ‘The Future’ of Genre-Blending With San Holo, James Vincent McMorrow: Listen

Everyone knows San Holo has the future bass sound down, but he is not about to be pigeonholed as any one genre in particular.

His latest single “The Future” cultivates a fresh sound from a variety of influences. Singer James Vincent McMorrow gives a silky-smooth performance good enough for any modern R&B tune. That bedroom style is reflected in the subtle production anchored by guitars that builds into clapping percussion and electronic touches. Big drums and synths signal the dance-pop hook, and more clear guitars tie everything together.

The song plays out with choppy textures and amped-up electronics with dance-pop appeal, and finishes with a bit of rock ‘n’ roll flair. It’s a cool blend of sounds Billboard Dance can get behind. Listen to it below.
