Providing an unparalleled and catchy listening experience, ‘Touche’ is sure to be a crowd favorite and serves as a stellar addition to Andhera Records.
“Creating Andera Records has been the best thing that has happened to me in my career. In the past three years, working on the label side of things has given me the opportunity to work with incredible talent which has pushed me to raise my production ability a ton. It also has allowed me to help up and coming artists find success which is something I thoroughly enjoy doing in this space. It’s all about building connections and a family and that is what Andhera Records has done for me. This week I am thrilled to be releasing my newest record ‘Touche’ on Andhera. Touche is a blend of all various dance music styles, resulting in a unique and darkly beautiful sound. Most importantly, I am proud to announce my first person production workshop at the Observed gallery in Brooklyn on April 15th. It’s something we’ve been working on for a long time and I’m so excited to see this one-of-a-kind experience come to life.” – Ky William
