Premiere: Sam Holland – Red Haze [Heart + Mind]

Sam Holland continues to reach new heights with a superb new EP on his own HEART + MIND label.
Holland has quickly become a firm favourite amongst house music’s most influential DJs. He’s released on Four Thirty Two, Mele’s Club Bad and Knee Deep In Sound as well as his own fledgling label. Those releases picked up high-profile support from Hot Since 82 and Jamie Jones as well as Danny Howard on BBC Radio 1. His unique mix of everything from original disco to contemporary house via 90s tribal sounds is showcased once again here on two more vital cuts.
The powerful ‘Body Rush’ opens up with streams of synth that heat you to your core as the loose-limbed drums and hits make you move. Silky smooth and soulful vocals heighten the feel-good vibes as you build towards a climax that will have the dance floor bubbling. ‘Red Haze’ is a more physical flex – a stripped-back house rhythm with toms and glitchy claps peppering warm, rubbery bass. It’s a chunky cut that gets lit up by strobe-lit synths and makes for heads down and serious dancing.
