If the Romanian scene has been a rather profuse hive for minimal grooves over the past decade with Ricardo Villalobos’ protégés Rhadoo, Raresh and Petre Inspirescu occupying centre stage, one name stands out when it comes to the more US-vibing brand of electroid house and acid techno: Andrew Red Hand.
Back onto Aroy Dee’s MOS Deep platform after a first incursion in 2015 with the excellent ‘For My Mother‘, the “true Detroit spirit possessed as Romanian humanoid” as he presents himself returns with ‘Dear Goddess‘ – a propulsive four-track rush in retro-futuristic house realms that melds surgical dancefloor efficiency with a proper enthralling finesse in its arrangements.
On the equally pulsating and emotional ‘Mom’s Spirit‘, which you can now stream in full through our channels, Andrew turns the 303-fueled turbo on as light-drenched strings breathe in a deep feel of otherworldly peace and supernal tranquility. Blending together a ferocious appetite for pacey 4/4 streams and poignant harmonics, this stellar cut shall shine bright and high in the club and beyond.
Dear Goddess is released via MOS Deep in February, pre-order a vinyl copy from Juno.
