The Holy - Plantera
The Holy is back with another drop on KOOKOO AFTER DARK. “Plantera” - set to be released on August 5th features His Holiness’ signature Gros Kick Sal - a mix of a kick, deep basslines, bright hats, and rave stabs. Plantera is dark, driving and full of energy. The ambient and atmospheric kick, locks you in and keeps your heart beating. The Holy then hooks us in with an otherworldly sample and a cosmic drop to complete the soundscape. Ghostly and fresh all at once, this track is an underground relic waiting to be unearthed.
Already gathering support from some of the industry’s most respected DJ’s such as Green Velvet, Benny Benassi, TSHA and Shadow Child, Montreal native The Holy, born Olivier Lamontagne is quickly ascending the city’s next biggest export.
His unique avant-garde sound filled with 90’s industrial rave nostalgic undertones scored him gigs alongside acts such as Mall Grab, Franky Rizardo and Sofi Tukker early on in his time as a club DJ. Quickly turning heads in the local scene, The Holy got called upon to play festivals such as Igloofest and Piknic Electronik leading up to his first EP release, V1510N, in January 2022. The single Never Seen Before, which features fellow montrealer Pony’s distinctive vocal was dubbed by Defected Record’s own Sam Divine one of her favorite tracks of the year.
Last year, he established a partnership with internationally celebrated digital artist FVCKRENDER for which he acts as sole music composer and director on their numerous artistic projects. They collaborated with staple brands such as Christies NYC, Times Magazine, Highsnobiety, Hypebeast and many more.
Up next,. The Holy will be performing a show on June 23rd in New York City followed by a string of festival dates this summer leading up to his sophomore EP “ One Time” which drops on September 2nd. The Holy is also releasing a fresh set of collabs with FVCKRENDER this month on the famous platform Nifty Gateway.
