Finally we’ll be able to listen in Mexico City to Andy Stott’s very particular approach to techno and house. Obscure, textured, and scattered with the most far-fetched musical references, his style has unfettered itself from unnecessary comparisons. Referring to his music today is speaking of intense rhythmic deferrals and post-devastation atmospheres, which have conquered the most demanding dancefloors packed with people willing to let go and travel through their subconscious minds guided by dense, spectral techno. When he released Merciless, his first album, people said it would captivate followers of Ricardo Villalobos, Lawrence or Luciano the same as of Murcof, Carl Craig or Erik Satie. And it did. He also has a facet that signs as Andrea, with which he cultivates rhythms like footwork and other speedy extravagances he doesn’t let out as Andy Stott. That is, when he pulls away from industrial textures and granular reverberations, he pulls closer to desolation landscapes. This year, Stott represents Modern Love at MUTEK.MX (a few years ago he represented Demdike Stare), a label which was born over a decade ago from the debris of a record store now turned into the digital distributor Boomkat.
