New For U
New For U (12")
Cat: LAVIDA 001. Rel: 08 Feb 12
Deep House
  1. New For U (5:44)
  2. Drama Around The Corner (4:40)
  3. Jazz Dance (7:30)
Review: Mahogani regular Andres comes correct once again with the debut drop on his new label La Vida, with three tracks that flow with that inimitable Motor City soul. Much like previous Andres output, the triplet on New For U draw obvious lines of influence from Dilla and Dixon Jnr, though it's all sprinkled with Dez's own unique touch and style, be it the infectious snap of percussion or deft and subtle implementation of samples. The title track is a gloriously ripe combination of both those elements as thick drums intertwine with the sumptuous waves of strings and warm chiming chords, everything worked into a rhythmic template that weaves with intoxicating energy. "Drama Around The Corner" makes for one of Andres' trademark neck snapping beatdown moments and the level of percussive detail that's apparent when you concentrate is stunning and is the charming almost brief interlude to the B Side magic. Commencing with a short, looped up jazzual intro, "Jazz Dance" swiftly settles into a stripped down procession of bumping drums, low reaching double bass and swift keys - all of which are intermittently complemented by some expertly looped vocal samples. Occupying most of the B Side, it feels like the track could reach into infinity without losing any charm. Rightly the 12" of the year for us and many others.

Second Time Around EP
Cat: LAVIDA 002. Rel: 11 May 17
Deep House
  1. Skate This Way (5:27)
  2. Second Time Around (3:20)
  3. Hart Plaza (4:48)
Review: Andres' return with the second La Vida 12" reaffirmed our belief that there's no-one out there doing it quite like the former Slum Village DJ. Second Time Around has the same insouciant, dusty charm that characterised New For U, the first drop on the Detroit deity's La Vida imprint, with the title track instantly entering the canon of house classics that change the shape of a party as soon as the needle hits the groove. The shimmying beats and cooing vocal snippets on "Skate This Way" work alongside captivating string samples. Flip over for some eloquent beatdown ("Second Time Around") and shuffling deep house exotica ("Hart Plaza").

Mighty Tribe
Mighty Tribe (12") (1 per customer)
Cat: LAVIDA 004. Rel: 01 Jul 16
Deep House
  1. Mighty Tribe (8:35)
  2. Chevy Status (7:13)
  3. Pluck Away (4:28)
Review: More than a few deep house DJs will be getting a little over-excited at the prospect of this Andres 12" on La Vida. It's the hyped Detroit producer's first outing since last year's tasty Believin' EP, and is as jazzy, positive and floor-friendly as you'd expect. The title track is the epitome of summer deep house, with the producer making great use of samples from an old, piano-heavy jazz-funk number. "Chevy Status" is a groovy, head-nodding, disco-influenced deep house shuffler featuring some familiar old school vocal samples, while "Pluck Away" sees him layer Balearic style acoustic guitars and sweeping string samples over a metronomic house groove. Yep, it's another must-have from Andres.

Believin' (12")
Cat: LAVIDA 003. Rel: 23 Mar 15
Deep House
  1. Believin' (5:30)
  2. Jungle Pain (4:22)
  3. Can't Shake It (4:48)
Review: Considering the success of Andres' first two EPs on La Vida, New For U and Second Time Around, it's surprising that it's taken nigh on three years for the ever-smiling Detroit producer to deliver this follow-up. Of course, those who lapped up those releases will love Believin'. The title track is something of a curiosity - a deliciously sweet and dusty deep house cut with an eccentric swing to the drum programming, finely chopped samples and more than a little nod to jazz. "Can't Shake It" finds Andres back on deep-but-bumping territory (the bassline, in particular, is superb), while "Jungle Pain" sees him layer twinkling electric pianos atop a typically undulating, rolling, snare-heavy jazz-house groove.
