With his first-ever release under this new AndThen alias hitting the Beatport Top 20, this new Strange Times EP of his is set continue that pace.
AndThen has used this ‘Strange Time’ we are all in productively by relaunching his music career and starting AndThen only 6 months ago. Already he has tickled the top 20 Beatport releases and he continues with his production prowess here.
Luke (his real name!) has been around in many forms since the mid 90s but has now found his home producing house and tech house with driving groove percussive elements, under his newly coined moniker ’AndThen’. This release on Brazilian label @priceincorrect is exactly that!
Track 1, “Strange Times” is a deep groover that has some amazing percussive elements that adds to the energy, whilst the twisted vocal talks about the Strange Times we are in. For those that remember them, this track defiantly has the feel of a Peace Division track of old.
Track 2 on the EP “Tell Me” is a slightly different affair. Yes, it has the percussive grove that runs through AndThen’s productions and sets but has a nice vocal stab running through it which is complemented by a 303 sounding synth. Which is a nod to his musical past.
