A South Londoner of Ghanian descent, Andrew Ashong is a singer, guitarist, DJ & producer who's only released two EPs so far. On a house, soul & jazz tip, those gained him comparisons with Marvin Gaye, Roy Ayers, Bill Withers or Lewis Taylor — which should intrigue already enough for you to be eager to give this mix a listen. He's been heard collaborating with various musicians such as Tony Allen, Auntie Flo, DJ Yoda, Nightmares On Wax, Theo Parrish, Hector Plimmmer, Sbtrkt, Submotion Orchestra or Swindle… So if you're not excited by now, then you either suffer from musical ignorance or you have a deep reading problem. Anyway, at Paris DJs, we feel this guy has a unique soul sound, combining a smooth cosmic voice with sweet & deeply layered grooves. Hence this mix gathering tunes from his two EPs long with various appearances and collaborations… Hopefully we'll hear more from Andrew Ashong in 2020!
