The New Year brings fresh energy to the Culprit camp, as the Los Angeles-based imprint begins 2017 with a new creative relationship. Culprit’s first release of the year is the label debut by Andreas Dimitriadis aka AND.ID – a name well familiar and respected on the European tech-house circuit. For the past decade, AND.ID has cultivated a consistently high quality repertoire of underground dance music, especially on his primary label home, Berlin’s Mobilee label, for which he has produced 11 EPs and a full-length album.
With his new release AND.ID has stretched his sonic range and selected Culprit as the proper outlet for this new chapter. “Diablada” is one original track in two distinct guises. Both showcase the artist’s more overtly musical and lighter side that is a right fit for Culprit’s sensibilities and point in a direction of future collaboration.
Remixing the new label artist is one of Culprit’s old hands, MANIK. The Los Angeles producer is a regular contributor to the label’s oeuvre, with 5 EP releases since 2010. This is MANIK’s first remix for Culprit.
