There are five artists who share the name Holden: a London-based producer, a French duo, a disbanded Californian trio and a young Russian musician.

Holden #1 is London based producer and DJ James Holden. He produces and plays a style that merges progressive house, techno and electronica. Better known as James Holden, he only released a few things under the name Holden, namely his more IDM based music.

Holden #2, the French duo, began recording in 1997. Band members Armelle Pioline (vocals) and Dominique Dépret (aka Mocke, guitar). With Pierre-Jean Grapin (drums), Evan Evans (clavier) and Richard Cousin (bass), they released ‘L’arrière monde’ in 1998. In 2001, they met the producer Senor Coconut aka Atom aka Uwe Schmidt, who mixed their second album, ‘Pedrolira’ (2002). They recorded their last album, Chevrotine, in Chile, 2006.

Holden #3 is a trio from Santa Barbara, California, who don’t exist anymore but used to consist of members Johnny Puailoa (guitar/vocals), Tom Cantillon (lead vocals/bass), and Dan Moore (drums). As of early 2007, Johnny and Dan decided to stop working in Holden, so Tom created a new band from Holden’s remnants: Tommy and the High Pilots.

    Clearly his face is up here because far more people give a shit about him than the French band even I haven't heard of.

    Stop hating the guy just because your shitty indie band that no one fucking cares has his name. Have some respect.

    Holden is a french band. Please keep on tagging as James Holden...

    Maybe he sees it as a separate project from his house / trance stuff as James Holden. The music is very different. He has always put out his more experimental stuff as Holden.

    Names changes are stupid (unless they are court ordered). I'll keep using James Holden 'till I die.
