Proving that small-town boys can make big-time music, Bathurst locals LOLO BX and Marcus Bower have teamed up to bring us the beautiful, bright, bass rumbling single “Hold”.
Bathurst (NSW Australia) isn’t known for its electronic music, but local producer LOLO BX continues to churn out his own brand of bangers – this time teaming up with local vocalist and good pal Marcus Bower to deliver that signature mix of beauty and bass.
The track delivers LOLO’s staple 808-driven basslines, half-time trap drums and crispy synths alongside Marcus’ soothing voice – one usually only heard over an acoustic guitar.
After a string of club-rattling bootleg releases, LOLO BX was looking forward to dropping some original material:
“I really liked going back to basics with this one and just making music I enjoy. I always prioritise melody and atmosphere in my song-writing approach, and this is something Marcus really added to. He nailed the vocal delivery to make this one extra special. The whole process itself was really fun, I even got to rip a guitar solo at the end! I’ve got a lot more original material in the pipeline that I’m looking forward to putting out.”
There was only one way for LOLO BX to share the record with the locals, which would involve extending the creative process into party planning:
“We basically threw a rave inside a shipping container. A cross between a Kanye-style listening party and full blown mini rave. It’s an idea I’ve had for a while and was lucky enough to have the stars align with enough help to make it happen. It was an invite only, BYO party that ended up getting real loose. I’m so grateful to have so much support from the local crew who all showed up to get wild. I’ll let the photos and video do the talking!”

More About LOLO BX
Born and bred in Bathurst NSW, the creative mind of Brett Foran (aka LOLO BX) doesn’t exactly fit the mould of a small town country boy. Growing up on a healthy diet of art and music (namely Hip-hop, Punk and Metal), his teenage life and social circle quickly began to revolve around making loud music and attending live shows on weekends.
As friends and fellow band members started getting ‘real jobs’, Brett’s focus shifted to electronic production – where he could do everything himself. His love for rich melodic textures and heavy bass were soon injected into the LOLO BX project, where beautiful songwriting meets club-rumbling bass bangers.
It didn’t take long for the sound to spread across the internet and radio waves, with support from national juggernauts Triple J, local and international music blogs, and nightclubs across the country. LOLO BX continues to deliver rich, cinematic bass music complete with his own hand-drawn cover art. Not bad for a Bathurst boy.
