Andrade – Be My Queen EP (incl Nico Lahs remix)

December 9, 2011


24 year old Andrade is without doubt, one of the most exciting talents from the current crop of young French producers. Having built a reputation within the Paris scene for his skills behind the decks, it was his early solo productions for Time Has Changed and Robotronic that caught the ear of a certain Mr Steve Bug. Releases on Dessous followed and this year Andrade also made a impressive debut on Poker Flat Recordings. Making a second appearance on Safari Numerique, having recently remixed Nick Daring’sDark Light,” it’s time for Andrade to take centre stage himself with the “Be My Queen” ep. The three original cuts are lead by the homage to his home City, “Paris.” Its bass-heavy groove is met with a busy vocal sample and refined piano chords, evoking a picture of a bustling Parisian street. “Be My Queen” is the soundtrack to a loft party. Classic snares, mysterious synth chords and crowd noise. Fantastic. Keeping it oldschool and rolling with the basslines and keys, Andrade wraps up the originals with “Warning.” An excellent collection of originals warrants a remix to match and Safari welcome a young producer who currently setting a blistering musical trail of his own, Nico Lahs. The Ovum & Culprit artist reworks lead cut “Paris” into a beautifully elegant anthem, with just the right amount of ‘bite.’
