3. Shermanology have recently started their brand Remix Couture. Over a decade ago, they embarked on a journey to create their own show outfits. Drawing inspiration from iconic artists like Janet and Michael Jackson, as well as Prince and many others, they ventured into the realm of fashion. Now, in 2023, they have decided to continue this remarkable journey under the name Remix Couture with the aim being to revolutionise the way they approach outfits.

So Andy dove into becoming a producer and when he found out that his passion for producing was bigger – bringing Dorothy on board with her incredible singing talent creating the inimitable Shermanology Sound!

5 Tracks:

Soul 2 Soul – Back To Life

This inspired us to do what we do now. It has the perfect balance between electronic and soul.

Missy Elliot – Get Your Freak On

The way that they combined a different culture with R&B was something that was never done before. This blew our minds.

Disclosure – Latch

This vocal was insane! The triplet beat was something that we’d never heard in electronic music.

CeCe Peniston – We Got A Love Thang

This is Dorothy’s all-time favourite classic! Such big vocals on electronic music – it was a real eye-opener for us!

Lost Boyz – Renee

Everything about this song was perfect – Storytelling and the beat…flawless.

…And I have to tell you our number six. Not because you asked for it. but you need to know! Bonus! Lol…

Mobb Deep – Shook Ones

This was sooo fresh! And when Mariah Carey made her version we lost it!  So mesmerizing!
