Today we celebrate the phenomenal debut album of drummer, producer, and all-round amazing human Vasil Vutev AKA Soulization - Holding Your Hand.

I decided to share with you "Oddball" a beautiful and forward-thinking future beats composition characterized by its odd and peculiar groove. The perfect morning feel-good tune when a hectic day is ahead of you.

The 12-track album ebbs and flows through funk, hip-hop, and cosmic future sounds, showcasing Soulzation's colourful and versatile skills. Joined by a galaxy of talented singers from across the globe, including SAÍGO (US/BR), Moka Only (CA), and RiE MORRiS (JP).

Thematically, the songs on Holding Your Hand and artwork subtly nod to topics such as the decline of nature, the emergence of artificial intelligence, human relationships, and many other thought-provoking themes.

Holding Your Hand is further enhanced by the skills of a number of beyond-skillful musicians including Arnau Garrofé Farràs (sax, flute), Bojidar Vasilev AKA TromBobby (trombone), Krasi Todorov (talk box), and Pecco (guitar).
