On this Podcast we bring to you a dear friend and well respected Dj. Our Primo Andrez! We hope you all enjoy this personal “Joy Ride”. For Andrez there was a lot of emotion with this project…the first half is dedicated to the WMC and everything it entails… All the pool parties, all the excitement in the air, everything that encompasses that particular time of year.
This project for embodies:
High energy – to make you wanna dance
Nostalgic – lyrics that may trigger an certain memories from when they were first released but with an updated feel
Euphoric – songs that carry feelings.
So what that being said, this by far is one of the most important project to date for Andrez. It was recorded live, straight mixing/no ableton.
I really hope you all enjoy the mix.
JoyRide = enjoy life and ride it until the sun sets…
Born and raised in the concrete jungle of NYC, Andres Martinez aka ANDREZ, is no stranger to the BASS. At the influential age of 15 he relocated to Colombia South America where his, now true passion for DJing began. While banging out the intense sounds of Latin inspired: salsa, merengue, and reggaeton, he was introduced to the drumfire sounds of house, and this is where his love for electronic dance music spawned. At the age of 20 Andres joined the United States Army and was stationed in Ft. Campbell Kentucky, neighboring, the city of Nashville Tennessee, whose dance music scene at that time was simply BOOMING, allowing Andres to keep his love for the electronic sound alive and real. In the year of 2001 it became as real as it gets, introduced to the BASS ridden, funk driven, dance creating sound of the break beat, Andres was instantly transformed. On his off time he would travel to Atlanta Georgia, hitting every vinyl shop, digging, and searching massive amounts of crates, thus expanding his arsenal of hard hitting BASS. He began DJing in the night clubs of: Nashville, Daytona Beach, and South Beach Miami, where he attended the infamous “Scratch Academy – Miami” (www.scratch.com/about/where-we-are/miami/). Eventually settling back up in Daytona Beach, this is where he currently resides, and proudly calls, his home. He continues to aggressively support the dance music scene in every possible way. Andres has progressed with the music, and his raw talent is solid proof!! See for yourself, @andrez_4208 A true soldier for the BASS, his passion for delivering solid, intense beats, will never die.
