It’s getting an official release in April” Gilles Peterson — BBC6 Music “This one brings pace and turns the melodic cut into a dance floor weapon… High energy house from one of the most exciting DJs doing it right now” Mixmag — “Layering the glittering melodies of King’s original production over soft pads, Andhim transform ‘Opals’ into a swirling synth-bath, steeped in emotive chords and gentle progression.” DJ Mag — “Fuelled by late night, dark introspective beats and soulful vocal cuts…ruthlessly emotive.” The Line of Best Fit — “Love these remixes. Will definitely play them out!” George Fitzgerald — Domino Records “Catching Flies is emblematic of a new spirit in London’s club culture….
