Andre Lodemann can be a difficult figure to place.
The German producer has the downbeat, soulful feel of deep house yet his melodies have the metallic sheen of techno. Encompassing a huge range of sounds, Lodemann's output tends to favour melody over discord, the humane over the technical, the organic over the digital.
For years an influence if marginalised figure, the past 18 months have witnessed Andre Lodemann surging to the forefront. New cut 'Imagine' is out now via Dessous Recordings and has become a fixture of the summer with its lowdown rhythms matched to an itchy sense of anxiety.
Asked to piece together an exclusive mix for Clash, Andre Lodemann responded in kind. Featuring a plethora of his biggest cuts, it's a mix which seems to pin down the grey area in which the German beatsmith operates.
"I've tried to do a timeless, very deep and emotional set. The main idea was to create a journey from slower deep house to deep techhouse. The mood of the mix is kind of mystical, mesmeric and spiritual. I've chosen some of my all time favourites and some brand-new tracks. All of them touch my soul!"
