Saturdays at AVALON
04/12/14 AVALAND presents Dennis Ferrer, Trus’me, Delroy Edwards
Andrea’s love for music saw him team up with local club kid and owner of Basel’s Nordstern, Agi Isaku, as they threw sold-out ‘Banditz’ parties across Switzerland. His reputation soon took him across the continent and all the way to Ibiza when he was first invited to DJ at Space and debuted his first release in 2004 on Swedish imprint Joia Records. As he began to forge a sound, he started releasing tracks on Viva Music, Saved Records, Be As One, Hideout, Moon Harbour, Soweso and Cadenza.
His most recent track for Play It Down, ‘Hoes’ reached the number 3 slot on Beatport’s tech house chart. Receiving high acclaim from critics and DJ’s alike, the track has been on heavy rotation amongst the records bags of Heidi, Nic Fanciulli, DJ Sneak and A Trak. He also collaborated with house legend Cajmere on his album ‘Too Underground For The Main Stage’ which also featured the likes of Maceo Plex, Jamie Jones and Pleasurekraft.
But, within such a short time of coming together, the world wouldn’t be ready for the shockwaves created by the pair’s cutting-edge productions and fresh, live DJ performances. Their versatility spans to include both their newest tracks as well as mash-ups and bootlegs of current hits, which they concoct in their studio during extensive, pre-set preparation.
