Holder's recording work spans house sounds through to disco loops and minimal Chicago style.Holder's single Da Sambafrique propelled him to cult producer status, a Latin track played by DJs all over the world.Even if you have Holder’s ‘The Other Side’ album, on which all these remixes are based, you’ll want to consider this – rather than being a cash cow it’s an intelligently prepared compilation, looking at Holder’s music in a different light.It’s always a mixed feeling listening to the lyrics on this.A Nick Holder remix album might not be seen as an immediately logical release for NRK, but when you get a feel for the quality of remixers involved everything falls into place.Holder is known as a deep house producer par excellence, but ‘The Other Mixes’ includes plenty of other styles and is a well-balanced album.Chicken Lips contribute a sparse, minimal version of ‘Player 1’, while A Man Called Adam throws several beat styles into the cinematic mix of ‘Back Again’.Solid house material ensues then, from Solid Groove and Freaks who take on ‘Bad Girl’ and ‘My Friendly Neighbour’ respectively.
Holder began DJing in the early 1980s, and soon became influenced by the Detroit techno scene and DJs such as Derrick May and Carl Craig.
He owns records labels DNH Records (house) and Treehouse Records (hip-hop), and has been producing music since 1991. He has also produced music for labels like: Studio !
K7 where he produced 2 albums '[One Night In The Disco and Still On Track, Jinxx records, Poker flat recordings, Stickman records, Ministry of Sound, Peppermint Jam, Definitive recordings, and NRK Sound Division.
