Benjamin Ruttner or Holiday87 is one half of NYC nu-disco tandem The Knocks. An enigmatic and refreshing act both on stage and in the studio, Ruttner’s solo act follows suit. His debut single as Holiday87 “Lost” is a spacey house anthem tailored for the genesis of fall.
“Lost” is sentimental and soft at its core— a breezy walk through warm sounds and a pronounced, consistent beat. Distilling the sounds of his funk-inspired background into velvety four-on-the-floor soundscapes, the start of Holiday87 is an entrancing one. A delicate synth breakdown occurs at the halfway mark, flipping the track on its head without losing sight of its mission. Check out the undeniable charm of “Lost” below.
