#TracksOfTheMonth soon on #DubiksMusicCharts
One of MYR ‘s most important values is the continuous search for fresh new talent to welcome to it’s growing family of artists. A keen eye for deep, emotionally constructive productions has always been at the core of the label’s presence as it builds its growing discography of world-class artists. Stepping up to join the family is Andy Kas, a Berlin- based producer specializing in deep, eclectic jazz-infused sounds that have an expected knack at getting you moving in ways you didn’t quite expect.
Andy’s “Hidden Bay” EP brings a refreshing swing to the label with the four-track EP. Aptly titled, Maui and Cocoa provide an offset skippy style variety of beats which are coupled with influences of jazz and house which subsequently form the core his approach with each song. The title track Hidden Bay features a unique blend of sampling from nature with the tone and energy of the song feeling balanced wh en connected to its housey elements. Picking up the pace, Maintain the Brainchain gives way to percussive elements which take precedence with big, dirty drums creating a sweaty low-end groove which is perfect for any summertime get down.
