The young Colombian producer comes to Jojo Angel's label with a fine two-tracker

Having built up a respectable discography over the past seven years with releases on labels such as Whyostro, Innocent Music and Wasabi, here Medellin, Colombia-born Andres Shockwave makes his debut for Greek label Techords Ltd, which is owned and run by Jojo Angel.

There are two tracks that make up the EP, and both fall under the "call it what you want" umbrella, stylistically: that is to say, you could describe the two tracks here as deep house, deep tech OR minimal, and you'd be right whichever one you'd plumped for! Density itself, somewhat ironically, is the dreamier of the two cuts, thanks in part to an almost Theremin-like pad that warps in and out throughout, underpinned by no-nonsense rolling drums and a hefty but fluid bassline and accompanied at the top end by vocal cut-ups, all served up with a pleasing garage-y bump n' swing. Dreams, meanwhile, is broadly similar in MO, but a little more straightforward and pumping in the beats/bass department.

Either track should keep any underground floor worth its salt moving for sure – and either will sound great on the headphones/sofa too. Classy stuff.
