James Holden Announces Fourth Studio Album

“Imagine This Is A High Dimensional Space of All Possibilities” is due for release on the 31st of March 2023.

James Holden announces new 12-track album “Imagine This Is A High Dimensional Space of All Possibilities”.

James Holden is an innovative electronic music artist from the UK who first established himself as a star of the progressive house scene in the early ‘00s. He was behind the iconic mix CD “Fear of A Silver Planet” and around this time he also produced tracks such as “I Have Put Out the Light”.

His sound later evolved to become more minimal but kept its melodic undertones and intricate musicality, as before electronic music he was a classically trained musician. Perhaps his most seminal production is his remix of Nathan Fake’s “The Sky Was Pink” which was released via his record label, Border Community.

Many will also be familiar with James Holden’s iconic “At The Controls” mix compilation which was an innovative DJ mix that utilised computer mixing before it was common to DJ on a laptop. That mix went way beyond a standard DJ set to showcase the extra level of creativity music software could offer in comparison to a standard set of DJ turntables.

He also released seminal production albums such as “The Idiots Are Winning”, before adopting a live band which was highly experimental and far removed from his progressive house roots.

Announced for release on the 31st of March 2023 via his label Border Community, James Holden has announced the release of his first album in 5 years and it’s expected to be a return to his more introspective electronic sound.

“Imagine This Is A High Dimensional Space of All Possibilities” is the name of his new studio album which will be his first in 5 years. Talking about the new 12-track album, James Holden said: “I wanted this to be my most open record, uncynical, naive, unguarded, the record teenage me wanted to make,” he then continued. “I used to balance my clock radio on a wardrobe to catch the faint pirate FM signals from the nearest city, dreaming of what raves would be like when I could finally escape and become a New Age traveller.

To help flesh out the visual component of Holden’s immersive fantasy world, the album comes with a 12-page comic booklet, which has been drawn by Amsterdam-based illustrator and musician Jorge Velez.

“Contains Multitudes” is the first single from James Holden’s new album and it can be streamed below…
