Before we knew of Holosound, we knew of Alex Fish – the head of US Development at Pulse Radio who (not by coincidence) tends to frequent the same momentous festivals and parties we do. Through his work and music, Fish has inevitably created strong ties in our niche. He’s that guy that knows everybody. Basically, he’s the ultimate mutual friend (or at least by Facebook standards).
As Holosound, Fish is a globetrotter. Coming off recent shows in Panama and Brazil, in the coming months he’ll be hitting Miami, Los Angeles, Tulum, Moscow, Colombia and Ibiza. The summer holds yet another set of gigs abroad. On the production side, he recently released on HNQO’s Playperview imprint along with Cameo Culture, and has also hinted an upcoming collaboration with Walker & Royce.
After a few nudges from our end, we finally got Holosound to drop us with an exclusive mix. What he gave us is a succulent two hours of deep tunes to get lost in.
Get to know Alex, and listen to the mix below. Click here to download (right click and save).
