“I learned how to scratch before I learnt how to mix, and being a percussionist I take great pride in my scratching, I tell people I’m a hip-hop DJ but I don’t just play hip-hop.” – Andrés

In the Resident Advisor “Track of the Year” editor’s poll, there could be only one #1 track, and in 2012, the honor went to Detroit’s Andrés (aka DJ Dez Andres) for his track “New For U,” which we can guarantee you’ve heard at some point during the last year.

Though he’s been making “classically-informed house, soul, hip-hop and funk” since 1997, he hasn’t gained nearly as much name-recognition as his key supporter Moodymann, who is his closest contemporary. Born to a famed Detroit jazz musician father (Humberto ‘Nengue’ Hernandez), he got his first drum set at 3 years of age, and was steeped in the rich Motor City musical scene. He worked in the same record store in Detroit that Kenny Dixon Jr. (aka Moodymann) worked in, and became a committed master of crate-digging at a very early age.

Andrés has been called a “Don of house and hip hop.” He was recruited by J Dilla to DJ for Dilla’s hip hop crew Slum Village, and is only now reaping the respect accorded to an artist with this kind of pedigree, in the worlds of both underground house music and hip hop. It is this mixing of genres, bringing the hip hop sensibilities of J Dilla, to the realm of house music (a la Moodymann) that makes this a show not to be missed.

Opening up for Andrés is our friend and once-monthly Groove Lounge guest, Joel Conway, aka Leo Jay. Joel is usually recruited by us to play the back room, because we know that his deep, deep record collection, astounding knowledge of music (of all genres), his trained ear, and his amazing attitude, are a win-win-win-win for us. We’ve never been disappointed by his music, in the front room or the back, and we thought he would be the perfect fit to open for Andrés with a 3 hour set. Make sure to come early for free champagne, and to hear what he will do to shape the crowd, warm the dance floor, and prepare for a night of music like no other at Housepitality.

Finally, our resident Tyrel Williams will be playing a back room Groove Lounge set for us, rounding out an evening of deep crate diggers. Tyrel’s record collection is as deep and enviable as those of Andrés and Joel, and his knowledge of music runs just as deep, making him a perfect fit to round out this night.
