(Modern Love, UK)
Hailing from Manchester, Andy Stott’s work has found a home on UK’s finest Modern Love, which has presented to the world his output of bass devastation weapons. Veering from the deepest Techno to broken down Garage, slowed down House and hyperactive Footwork, his music shares one common thread, and that is that they all sound “heavy”. His most recent album, “Luxury Problems”, has grabbed the attention of countless year-end charts, and has been linked to albums such as Burial’s Untrue, or Luomo’s Vocalcity. The quality of his live set, as much as that of his music, has brought him to the stage of festivals such as SXSW, Unsound, Mutek, and more recently Pitchfork’s MOMA events.
