At the forefront of the new wave of artists rising from the French underground scene, Parisian hit maker Andrade makes his debut release on One Records with the sensually smooth and solid dance floor bomb, 'Sweet Disposition'. Over on the B Side fellow Frenchman Terence :Terry takes the reins to inject his signature groove while Ibiza residents Acid Mondays round off the package perfectly with a remix that offers everything we are coming to expect from the talented duo.
Heading up the A-side, 'Sweet Disposition' masterfully combines a sense of class with stunning synths and subtle samples referencing the prolific scene apparent in 1980s New York, with particular mention of the legendary pioneer Larry Lavan. Melodic keys, deep chords and flowing synths roll across pulsating beats as the track skilfully builds in to a dramatic and somewhat hypnotic affair. Olivier Andrade aka Andrade first made a name for himself through his impressive DJ skills and early releases, fast gaining support from the likes of D'julz, Delano Smith and Ralph Lawson. With releases already on Bass Culture, Poker Flat and Dessous, Andrade is going to shoot straight into the limelight in 2014 being the first non-detroit based artist to release on Delano Smith's MixMode. If that wasn't enough he also has releases lined up on Illusion Recordings, Dessous Recordings, Karat and his own label, Street Knowledge.
La Vie En Rose boss Terence :Terry also makes his first appearance on the label with his remix of 'Sweet Disposition' taking things deeper with a powerful low end, complimented perfectly with trippy FX and a clever play on the vocal. Attending the first raves in Paris, Terence holds a wealth of experience and knowledge when it comes to DJing and producing having played everywhere from DC10 to Panorama Bar with releases on the likes of Freak N' Chic, 2020 Vision, Robsoul and 1trax.
Last up, Acid Mondays aka Negghead and Lex Wolf bring their high energy and unique sound to the label with their remix. Having had impressive debut EPs drop on Illusion Recordings, Contemporary Scarecrow & Deep Vibes with support from the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, tINI and Loco Dice, it's no doubt 2014 is set to be big for the dynamic duo with a string of more exciting releases on the way.
