May 2012 – Episode 198 – Following last year’s triumphant debut on Untold’s imprint Hemlock, Brighton based producer Guy Andrews is back with his first 12″ for Hotflush Recordings. A superb followup to his 2011 auditory missive, The Wait / Hands in Mine merges percussive elements with heavy basslines resulting in two dark dancefloor cuts.
Shuffling and persistent, Side A is bass-driven track filled with arpeggiated goodness, while on the flip, Andrews shows off his ability to manipulate genres by using a bass kick and frenzied rhythmic percussion to dial up an atmospheric tune.
With recent acclaim from XLR8R, Resident Advisor and Truants along with DJ and radio support from the likes of Benji B, L-Vis 1990, Brackles, Sound Pellegrino, Shortstuff, Benjamin Damage and Throwing Snow, Guy Andrews is on the rise. Lookout for another 12″ via Hotflush this Fall.
