Gatefold double LP version. Andy Vaz returns with his third full-length album on his own Yore label. Due to Vaz's half-Indian roots, he is lucky enough to own a beach house just outside of Mangaluru in the South Indian state of Karnataka. This is where most of House Warming was written, over a period of six months. In this totally isolated, hidden, entirely tourist-free spot, which had become Vaz's second home in the years before the album's creation, the artist found himself outside of the usual routines of Western life and in a position to simply sit down and create. The result is House Warming. As the title suggests, it's house, without a doubt -- but in the form of an album that's thoughtfully crafted from beginning to end. This is house music in all its aspects: the soulful, the deep, and the raw; or, if you prefer, deep house, acid house, and garage/vocal house. The joints range through downtempo, elektro, and even hip hop beats. This may sound old-school, and in spirit, it may be; it was produced entirely with analog synths and the Roland series -- from 808, 909, 505, and 606 to the original 303 -- but in a modern studio environment. Andy Vaz has been around long enough to know how to program his very personal ideas into the music, without denying influences from Detroit, Chicago, and New Jersey, to create something that goes further than a simple reflection of the past. "Deep" isn't a genre, it's a feeling. A warm feeling most of all. You're invited to find it here. Features contributions from Eva Soul and Niko Marks.
