ANDY BOOK – SHORT CIRCUIT EP
Apr 2017 03

Aveiro, Portugal born AndrĂ© Filipe Rodrigues aka Andy Book debuts on Piston Recordings with the deep house two tracker Short Circuit EP. Now residing in Nice, France, Andy spreads his artistic range from music to art and illustration. He has harboured a passion for electronic music for a long time and in 2007 he started to produce his own music with his first release being Geometric Drop EP which gained support from Silicone Soul among others. In 2008, together with Alexx Wolfe he got his first release on vinyl, a remix for Frederic De Carvalho. Then he started working with Sui Generiz and released the Lost Words EP which received huge feedback from the likes of Rodriguez Jr, Kolombo, and James Teej to name just a few. A highly regarded artist we’re glad to have on board.

Short Circuit gets right down to business with a nice chunky kick drum and crispy hi hat combi alongside tasty chord stabs and a deep subby bassline. The keys are sublime here and really deliver a true deep house groove. Rhythmic percussions will get the dancing feet shuffling and floors filled as the track lures you in. A beautifully constructed slice that will be a welcome addition in any set.

FlexKey delivers a stompingly good deep house groover filled with warm tones and a fantastic drum arrangement that will force you to move. Punchy kicks lead the way with slicing hi hats on the offset while a meandering deep bassline moves effortlessly through the lower frequencies. A rhythmic percussion section dishes out a dancey groove accompanied by expert keys and fresh vocals that give the track club vibe. Brilliant stuff and the perfect fodder for any deep house fuelled set.
