TERM079 – Andhim – Like A Wirsing

Having bought us a plethora of Techno bombs of late, Monika Kruse’s Terminal M, for their next release, go house. Tech-house to be more precise, and delivered by a duo that are fast on the rise.

History has brought together many disparate figures… Thelma & Louise, Bud Spencer & Terrance Hill, Woody Allen and his stepdaughter… and often, something wonderful came from the meeting. This is also the case with the boys of, Andhim. Two contrasting characters who together, with what they refer to as their unique style of ‘Super House’, look to bring the dancefloor together. Their releases for Kling Klong, Shaker Plates, Great Stuff, Wasabi Recs. and Monaberry have been doing just that, and today they look to continue their mission, with their debut for Terminal M.

From the party-starting opener of “Like A Wirsing”, we are swept up in a wave of ‘Bass’. The opener has certainly been touched by some ‘San Fran’ sunshine, and with its simple percussion and warm vocal delivers a perfect hip-swinging start to the EP.

“Extragold” with its low-slung, lazy march, is just as infectious. Hammond and accordion stabs purposefully and expertly violate the bassline, and together with the sultry vocal, which at times brilliantly cascades away, help create a gold plated dancefloor smash.

Hanne & Lore take on “Like A Wirsing”, and build on the original’s groove, whilst adding a heightened electronic bassline and bringing an array of new and traditional sounds to the fore.
