Biography —

An astonishing seven years has now elapsed since the release of James Holden’s milestone debut
album The Idiots Are Winning in 2006, rightfully acclaimed in such quarters as The Guardian as
“The most astonishing debut in electronic music since Boards of Canada’s Music Has The Right To
Children”. But June 2013 sees Holden finally return in a big way, with a brand new artist album of
suitably epic proportions: 75 minute long English pagan saga The Inheritors. A bold, psychedelic
journey, striking a delicate balance between weighty tome and transformative trip, and with a
production aesthetic that is all his own: Holden is certain that this is the album that he always wanted
to make. Nobody is making electronic music as explorative as this….
