After a period of writing and producing ambient music under various aliases, Guy Andrews’ first release under his own name came about in 2011 for the critically acclaimed Hemlock record label. Since then he has gained support from tastemakers such as Massive Attack, Mary Anne Hobbs, Scuba, Untold and many more. He has since released on a number of critically acclaimed labels such as Hotflush and Pennyroyal, scored for world-renowned photographer Nadav Kander, as well as collaborated with Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja for a remix of his well respected Battle Box series.
Guy Andrews continues to carve his way into the electronic music scene, exploring a new sonic palette with his début album that came out on Houndstooth Recordings in March 2016. Ignoring previously used DJ-friendly structures, tempos, and mix downs, ‘Our Spaces’ breathes a new power and directness, as Guy has re-focused his approach and style. This paradigm shift is immediately evident from the album’s opening bars, with its emphatic percussion and reeling distortions a perennial feature throughout the album. This sonic aggression, however, is paralleled with a sensitivity and zeal that really adds a level of depth that is often hard to communicate consistently in album format.
