Sander van Dijck (born 26 November 1990), better known by his stage name San Holo, is a Dutch DJ, musician, record producer and composer from Zoetermeer. He gained international recognition for his remix of Dr. Dre's "The Next Episode", which currently has over 175 million views on YouTube.[1] He has released music on several record labels including Spinnin' Records, OWSLA, Barong Family, and Monstercat. He also founded bitbird, a label which has released several of his singles including "Still Looking" and "Light". San Holo's first EP, Cosmos, was released via Heroic on 18 September 2014 and was in the Top 100 Electronic category of iTunes.

In 2017, he was nominated at the Electronic Music Awards for New Artist of the Year.[2]

Background[edit]

Van Dijck studied music production and guitar at Codarts.[3] He graduated in 2012.[4] Before he became a well-known DJ and producer, he was teaching children to play guitar. After years of working with bands, Van Dijck began ghost producing for DJs. His production experienced considerable commercial success, which led him to consider going solo and creating the stage name, San Holo.[5]

History[edit]

2013: Corellia and Demons EPs[edit]

In early 2013, San Holo released his little known debut EP, Corellia.[citation needed] Later that year in October, he released his second EP, Demons.[6]

2014: Heroic Recordings and Walt Disney Pictures[edit]

San Holo began making music in 2013 and began to gain attention in 2014, when he was signed by Heroic Recordings.[citation needed] Cosmos EP was released on 18 September 2014[7] and was in the Top 100 Electronic category of iTunes.[citation needed]

In November 2014, he released a remix of Dr. Dre's "The Next Episode", which has had over 150 million views on YouTube.[8]

In September 2014, Walt Disney Pictures threatened a lawsuit against producer Sander van Dijck.[9] They thought his stage name San Holo was too similar to Han Solo, a character in the Star Wars movies.[9] Heroic Recordings label stated: "We are shocked by the instituted proceedings. That is very unfortunate for Sander. It should be clear that he has chosen his name for love of Star Wars. To interpret it in completely the opposite way is crazy. We find his latest release fantastic and hope that this will not stop him in his success as an artist."[citation needed]

2015: Monstercat and Spinnin' Records[edit]

On 4 May 2015, he released a song called "Victory" on Monstercat.[10] On 25 May 2015, he also released a music video of his song "Hold Fast" in Monstercat; both songs become part of Monstercat's 22nd album titled Contact and San Holo's Victory EP, also from Monstercat.[11] On 4 September 2015, he released a video of his single with "Father Dude" called IMISSU on Spinnin' Records.[12] On 2 October 2015, he released a remix of Porter Robinson's song titled "Natural Light".[13] The remix became a part of Robinson's Worlds Remixed album.
