Dutch producer San Holo revisits his debut release on OWSLA‘s curated network NEST HQ “We Rise” with a stripped down, acoustic version of the tune. Following his 2014 Cosmos EP, “We Rise” jumpstarted the artist’s success in the genre and has garnered over 100 million streams across online platforms to date.Teased on his Diplo and Friends Mix last month, the acoustic version of “We Rise” highlights San Holo’s guitar-centric background with plucky chords, allowing the simple yet memorable lyrics — “we rise, we fall” — to drive the track.
