2017 Rewind: Andre Crom

Andre Crom

How was 2017 for you?
Andre Crom: I spent a lot of time in the studio and evolved further on my way to becoming an authentic techno DJ/producer. It feels like my long process of musical change is consolidating now and I’m really finding my own voice, which is also being recognized by the artists in my style that I’d like to be associated with.

The recent release of my debut EP on Sleaze Records. The feedback and DJ support are truly amazing, a huge and diverse range of techno artists are playing tracks from it. For example, Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Scuba, Amelie Lens, Charlotte De Witte, Sam Paganini, and many more.

It does take time for people to recognize such a big musical change as I’m going through now, so I’m still waiting for my booking situation to connect to the recognition my music now finds with the DJs, although it’s slowly picking up!

Song of the year?
VII Circle’s “Alpha” (Farrago Remix)

Premiere: Andre Crom – Destiny (TRACE7000 Remix)

andre-crom-destiny-off recordings

With summer now in his rear view, OFF Recordings boss Andre Crom is getting ready to release the Destiny EP, an unrelenting and wonderfully dark three-tracker. A label owner with a keen sense of A&R, Crom put the title track in the hands of up-and-coming, acid-obsessed Netherlands-based producer TRACE7000 (a.k.a. Ferdous Dehzad), which we’re thrilled to world premiere. TRACE7000, who is signed to Tiga’s Turbo Recordings, presents a striking manifesto over the span of his six-minute interpretation. Over the trajectory of the remix, he embellishes “Destiny” with meandering synths and percussion galore. Check the premiere below and look for the full release on October 3.
