It’s been a short while since we last featured any music from Guy Andrews and this free download titled Hints is a work of art.
When Guy graced our mix series back in December 2011 he was starting to forge a sound of his own; a dark and broody sound that focused heavily on percussive rhythms. It looked like Guy was set to head further and further into the Techno chasm, but from the sounds of his latest release (Annum EP) forthcoming on FINA, he has re-embraced his more melodic Jazz roots and brought them into the fold, creating a sound that is still very percussive but now has a new layer of melodic interest. It’s a lethal combo.
Hints is one of those free downloads that a healthy number of record labels would have happily signed. It’s nice to be treated to a download that isn’t a throw away tune that no one wanted. It’s a real story teller of a tune, drawing you in and keeping your intrigued throughout. If you like the download I’d strongly advise listening to the Annum EP and picking up a copy when it drops on the 17th.
