Andruss & Umberto Pagliaroli combine on ‘Mueve’
Up-and-coming tech house talent Andruss collaborates with Umberto Pagliaroli and El Apache Ness on ‘Mueve’. On the flip, Andruss joins forces with Fatboi, celebrating their South-American roots on Jamie Jones’ long-running and internationally renowned Hot Creations label. Huge drums and fresh percussive sounds dominate the release.
Born in Mérida, Mexico, Andruss is a rising star on the international house and tech house circuits. He’s released on La Pera Records, Bunny Tiger, South Of Saturn and many more celebrated labels, building a legion of fans worldwide. As a DJ, he’s shared the bill with Alok, Vintage Culture, Bekermat, Duke Dumont and several other established names.
Italian-born producer and DJ Umberto Pagliaroli has produced club-cut tech house on labels like Riviera Underground Music, RIM, Toolroom and more, sharing his dynamic and upbeat sound with the masses. Born in Quilmes, Argentina, El Apache Ness is a well-known vocalist, celebrated for his songs Joda En Mendoza and Somos Asi. His collaboration with Andruss and Umberto Pagliaroli on Hot Creations marks a first for the artist.
Andruss explains the root of the EP. “‘Mueve’ was born from the great support we have received from our latest tracks. It is something that we have not or have never dared to do. The fusion of Latin vocals of the singer El Apache Ness fits perfectly with the idea I had with Umberto Pagliaroli. Both the voices and the classic percussive finishes of salsa music give a twist to this new production that we have great faith in reaching the top stores.”
The title track kicks off with chunky drums and organic textures, with El Apache Ness’s vocals upping the energy—an instant club classic. On Agáchalo, Andruss teams up with rapper and singer Fatboi. Andruss explains the process in his own words.
“This track is very special for Fatboi and me since we created it in less than 24 hours. I sent Fatboi a quick message, and he didn’t hesitate to record an improvisation of the track for me since we didn’t have much time to deliver it.” The result is a muscular tech house tune with tribal drums in perfect harmony with Fatboi’s husky vocals. A poignant moment for Andruss, who sums up the track and the whole EP itself: “From the feeling of releasing something in Spanish on a top British label, it makes us feel very proud of our roots.”
