Q&A: Andrade (FR002)



Who are you and where do you come from?

I’m Andrade Olivier, otherwise known as Andrade, and I’m from Portugal but I live in Paris.

What are you working on currently? What are your plans for the future?

I’m actually working on new releases for 2013.  Hopefully new EPs for the labels I’m working with, like D’Julz’s Bass Culture, Delano Smith’s Mixmode, Ralph Lawson’s 20:20 Vision, plus my own label Street Knowledge as well as a host of other smaller labels.

What was the inspiration behind this mix?

This mix was inspired by actual mood, shared between Detroit music and the more European Minimal sound.  Many Matthew Herbert tracks in the list, this guy always inspired me a lot.

How was the mix recorded?

The mix was recorded in Thailand, Koh Phangan.  I was on holiday when it was requested so yes, unfortunately, I had to do it with my laptop, which I don’t normal have involved.  But everything worked, the music is the deal here…


See Andrade perform for the first time in the UK this Friday at The Shelter on Kingsland Road.  For more details and to get on the £5 guestlist go to our event page:
