It’s no secret that Andhim have been on a steady rise lately. Recently named by THUMP as one of the biggest new acts on the WMC circuit and perhaps known best for their 2012 remix of Theophilus London’s ‘Wine & Chocolate”, Simon and Tobi have come far since founding the self- proclaimed ‘boyband’, Andhim, in Cologne spring of 2010. Now they announce the release of ‘Body Language Volume 14’ out now on the celebrated Get Physical label.
With more than 2 decades of musical experience between the two of them including a history of DJing and touring already under their belts, ‘Andhim’ is merely the newest incarnation of their time-tested talent. With the ability to move dancefloors in their own special way through the unique and often uplifting vibe they create, it’s no wonder why Andhim were invited to mix the 14th Volume of Get Physical’s Body Langauge series and join the ranks of M.A.N.D.Y., Dixon, DJ Hell, Catz ‘N Dogz and all those who helped form the series’ reputation as a tastemaker and artistic showcase.
“We wanted to bridge between music we love to hear while looking out of the window during a train ride,” comments Simon of the overall theme of the mix, ‘music which people can start their night with. Tracks we play in our live sets and own stuff we wanted to be presented.”
With tracks like Robag Wruhme’s ‘Pnom Gobal’, Stimming’s remix of Ian Pooley’s ‘Kids Play’ and even andhims own remix of 2raumwohnung’s ‘Bye Bye Bye’, the mix certainly takes on a gentler, softer side rather than a constant hands-in-the-air fist-pump orgy some of the more mainstream outlets love to push. You could call the mix a breath of fresh summer-air, with warm tones overflowing and sunny vibes abound – something Andhim has become known for and a recurring theme in the duo’s productions.
Don’t miss Andhim this Saturday, May 17th at Verboten (54 N 11th Street, Brooklyn, NY).
