Boom Boom is proud to present one of our favourite producers and DJ's straight out the D. DJ Dez Andres aka Andrés..
Dez Andrés has been releasing classically-informed house, soul, hip-hop and funk since 1997. Moodymann is his closest contemporary. Being part of such famous groups as Slum Village and being close friends with J Dilla, KDJ, Amp Fiddler and just being part of the collective underground in Detroit - Dez has forged a name for himself in the underground for many years.
Dez was releasing stuff under "Mahogani" (KDJ Label) for many years including some cult classics including Andrés, Andrés II, and Andrés III. Since then Moodymann has pushed Dez to start his own label "La Vida". In 2012 "La Vida" came into the scene and the very first release has been a crazy sensation with tracks "New For U" and "Jazz Dance".
"New For U" was rated track of the year on both RA and FACT Magazine which has also cemented Dez's status. His other releases on "La Vida" were sold out on Juno the minute they were on pre-order, making each one of Dez's releases rare and much strived for.
Besides being an amazing producer, the most important thing for us is at Boom Boom is having an amazing DJ as well. With his hip-hop background and his crazy abilities behind the decks, Dez's sets are legendary. His ability to transcend genres and push boundaries is one of the main reasons we wanted to get Dez here to Australia for the very first time as Andrés.
Make sure you come down early as we have the one and only Simon Caldwell (Mad Racket) down supporting on the night. Simon needs no introduction as he is another close friend to the Boom Boom family. Along side Simon we have the resident Boom Boom DJ's Daniel Lupica and Karim laying down the beats..
Tickets are going to sell out. We are back to Boom Boom HQ's at Tatler. Making this a very special and intimate night for 150 very lucky guests.
Don't sleep on this - once we are sold out, that's it. There will be only 30 tickets on the door at $40.
