To gear you towards the weekend, we exclusively deliver a brand new cut from rising star Dom Zilla.

Dom Zilla first saw underground success and critical acclaim producing and co-writing for the singer Lulu James – a heady fusion of her soulful vocal tones juxtaposed against his warped electronic textures and sparse beats. Now continuing his own critically-acclaimed signature of melding subtle, misty vocals with a sophisticated and light electronic/ hip hop influences on his instrumentals, Dom recalls the experimental and expansive soundscapes of Tycho and Jon Hopkins.
His new release “Holding” is both gently invigorating and deeply calming and reflective – a difficult balance that Dom Zilla is consistently beginning to master.


Speaking on the track, Dom Zilla states: “”Holding” was initially written about holding on to something, but with the premise of being ambiguous in what you could be holding on to. When I wrote it, I liked the idea of it not having a particular subject and had the hope that it would have a different meaning for everyone that listened to it. It has all of the elements that I love to use, including Fender Rhodes, glitches and upfront beats. It’s definitely my favourite track off the E.P.”
