Andrés is the house music avatar of Cuban-Jamaican DJ and Producer Humberto Hernández. His Latino father was a well-known jazz musician in Detroit who played with the likes of Carlos Santana, and from here he learned how to play Latin-style percussion and drums. After relocating to LA as a young child, he honed his DJing skills playing parties throughout his teens, and by the time his family moved back to Motor City he was a bonafide DJ and brilliant selector. Although his DJ roots are in hip-hop, his house production skills were picked up by Kenny Dixon Jr. – AKA Moodyman – where he has had multiple house releases on the prestigious Mahogani Records. He now owns his own label ‘La Vida’ which he launched in 2012 with his own 12” single ‘New For U’, which ranked no. 1 in Resident Advisor’s poll of 2012’s top 50 tracks.
Auckland brothers Ben and Louis Helliker-Hales have worked together for the past 8 years under their Chaos In The CBD moniker. They moved to London in 2012, and they find their influences in the timeless classics and unrivalled masterpieces littered throughout the annals of house music. This duo is undoubtedly one of the hottest acts in the global underground music scene, and a real pleasure to be welcoming to the booth in the XOYO basement.
