HOLLY REY – YOU EP – DROPS 11TH OCTOBER – PRE – RELEASE DROPS 27TH SEPTEMBER

Certified platinum by the Recording Industry of South Africa (RISA) –
‘Deeper’ didn’t just snatch the most prestigious award in the SA
Music constellation. Driven by 3.5-million streams and 25-thousand
downloads, the video for “Deeper” streaked past 6 million views on
YouTube within the days of the announcement.

Holly has since earned the reputation as one the hardest working artists
in the industry. Playing to should out gigs across South Africa and
across borders in Lesotho, Botswana and Uganda. The house artist
recently received pan-African acclaim with a NAMA 2019 Nomination for
Pan African Artist of the Year. She was also invited to headline the
awards events.

Instead of sitting back to enjoy the accolades and relying solely on the
success of Deeper, she was in the studio a few short weeks later,
working on the next chapter of her story. Holly Rey had been itching to
work with SA’s favorite hit maker Dr Moruti. She also brought in the
incredible production duo, Colours of Sound and the young breakout
Zimbabwean producer Murphy Cubic.

Holly Rey was executive producer on the EP, working with an incredible
team of young producers she built a House EP that smoulders with vocal
depth and offers a fresh point of view in a growing cross over house
market. Asked why she chose the EP format with its eight tracks, the
songbird had this to say:“I got to work with these awesome producers
on an intense creative spree. The idea of an EP is that tracks would hit
the streets quicker. I could get on the road to perform them, bring them
to life for the fans. Then I can get back in the studio with the guys
and do it all over again, constantly releasing fresh sounds instead of
being locked into one long heavy body of work.”

A stand out track on the EP is “Midnight Lover” produced by Murphy
Cubic, a young Zimbabwean who produces a huge range of sounds but Holly and Murphy have been able to find their sweet spot in an
inter-continental House sound which pops in Midnight Lover. Other stand
out tracks would have to be “Fire” produced by Dr Moruti and “Running”
by Colours of Sound.
