24-year-old music artist Miguel Oliveira, otherwise known by his stage name “Holly”, has quickly and efficiently made quite a name for himself in the world of electronic music over the last 6 years, as he began making music at age 18. Holly was able to share his music around the world at an impressively early stage in his career, making stops in the US, Australia, Europe, Asia, and South Africa– most recently hitting festivals around the world such as Coachella, EDC Las Vegas, and EDC Korea.
During this time, he released his music on some of the largest independent music labels to date, including Insomniac, Deadbeats, Buygore, Fool’s Gold Records, Dim Mak Records, and Monstercat. Having performed around the world while releasing his music on such well-known labels, he quickly garnered the attention of many critically-acclaimed electronic producers – namely Rezz, Zeds Dead, Bloody Beetroots, Machinedrum, Bassnectar, Noisia, TOKiMONSTA, Alison Wonderland, and more.
Holly was deemed ‘one of the top producers of 2017’ by both DJ Mag and Run The Trap, and won the very first A-Trak Goldie Awards Beat Battle that same year. In 2019 Billboard Dance featured him as an emerging artist, highlighting his sound as ‘tough, but sophisticated and often experimental bass that still often properly pummels.’ In the same year, Holly landed a full-page spread in DJ Mag and received notable features from outlets such as Magnetic Mag and HipHop DX.
Although immensely talented at producing stand-alone electronic beats, Holly has heavily geared his efforts toward producing innovative rap and hip-hop projects for numerous artists, such as Gunplay, A$AP TyY, Joey Purp, Ramengvrl, ProfJam, Dengaz, Bloody Jay, Slow J, and Papillon, and has put together several creative projects for Blue Man Group. Expect to see his name credited on plenty more notable rap projects in the years to come.
Holly’s engaging on-stage presence and innovative sound have catalyzed his emergence out of the SoundCloud scene and rapid growth as a producer and respected artist across many genres of music.
