Daily Holla has released his debut EP Progress and we’re pretty excited about it.
In case you missed out on his set at One & Three’s birthday last year, Daily Holla is the musical project of twenty-year-old producer Harry Deadman. Originally from Adelaide and now residing in the Gold Coast, Deadman has been piecing the EP together over the past year before releasing it under Paris and LA based label Emprise Music.
Progress delves into a fresh brand of woozy chill-step that features off-kilter samples collected abroad, instruments and vocals recorded in bedrooms and friend’s houses, and final mixing and mastering at Studios 301 in Sydney. There is also a cheeky feature from silky-smooth vocalist J Fitz on single 'Empty Spaces', and local folkster Dom Symes’ signature bass and vocals appear on 'Greenland'.
Overall the six tracks highlight an ability to move between down-tempo textural delights to thumping movers and shakers, always demonstrating a knack for velvety guitar licks and side-chain-heavy synthesis.
Daily Holla’s debut EP Progress is available on iTunes, Spotify and SoundCloud, and word on the street is a second EP is not far around the corner.
