      Detroit-based Andres (also known as DJ Dez) is the son of Cuban-born musician Humberto Hernandez, an original player in Detroit’s jazz scene who has worked alongside Marcus Belgrave, Travis Biggs, Roy Brooks and other key figures.

      Andres has played alongside Theo Parrish as part of his free-flowing collective Rotating Assembly, as well as with the infamous Detroit jazz ensemble Tribe. However he is mostly famed for being DJ to J Dilla's legendary hip-hop group, Slum Village.

      Heatsick Snakes & Ladders EP Sounds Of The Universe / Soul Jazz Records

      Trippy experimental club tracks from Steven Warwick aka Heatsick exclusive to our Sounds Of The Universe imprint. Limited to 300 copies - available only direct from our store or websites

      All artwork designed by Heatsick himself and includes 12 X 12 hand-screen printed numbered artwork.

      "Snakes & Ladders" - where Casio stabs and a barking bassline builds up to a stretching crescendo of white-noise percussion - a rhythm track from the Music Box heyday performed in striking Casio tones. 

      The ultimate night driving music  - "Time Smudge" is an interstellar journey through trippy space pads and grinding pedalled bass. 

      Heatsick explains:

      "Snakes & Ladders deals with game theory on the grid, slithering around precariously only to fall down a worm(snake?) hole on Time Smudge, reprogramming the ride"
