About AND.ID // MOBILEE RECORDS
And.Id is mobilee’s master of swung beats and live brass, characterizing his textured and rhythmic productions as “body moving, and mind grooving.”
Born and bred in Thessaloniki, Greece, Andreas was raised on jazz. Heavily influenced from a young age by his musical surroundings – in the audiences of jazz performances, and absorbed in his father’s extensive record collection – he began studying music at the age of 10. He soon applied his training to a range of artistic outlets, jamming in local bands, producing tracks for freestyle groups and creating scores for short films.
In 2002, And.Id became involved with NON, the Greek artist’s collective responsible for the Reworks Electronic Music Festival and club nights throughout the country. The following year he received a highly coveted invitation to the Red Bull Music Academy in Cape Town, and shortly thereafter released EPs for Thinner Records and Ware. And.Id hit his stride in 2008, with “One Is Not Enough“, his mobilee debut that showcased both intricate production skills, and a unique integration of live components, the latter of which has lent an inimitable sound to his material.
The critically acclaimed “Sand on the Floor“ followed, as did “First Talk“ and “I Will Be There“, and in 2010 And.Id took his unique amalgam of electronics and live instrumentation to its furthest reaches, with his ambitious and celebrated instalment for mobilee’s Back to Back compilation series. Alongside a disc of curated highlights from the label’s catalogue, he formed the And.Id and B.A.N.D. collective – consisting of Berklee College of Music graduates and seasoned studio musicians – for a second disc of live jazz interpretations of mobilee classics. Sebo K’s anthem “Horizons,” Pan-Pot’s lush, piano-led track “Faces,” and Anja Schneider’s defining collaboration with Sebo K, “Rancho Relaxo” were all painstakingly re-recorded, arranged, and re-edited by And.Id and B.A.N.D. This year, as well as a new EP “Psychedelic Love“ on mobilee, And.Id had his first release on 2020 Vision “Need For Chicago“, and a track he made with Anja Scheider‚”Imagination”, is featured on Heidi’s Jackathon Compilation on Get Physical Music.
And.Id’s acclaimed live show integrates both well-loved and unreleased productions, loops, and live trumpet into a high-energy affair; never delivering the same live set twice, And.Id’s performances are combustions sparked by spontaneity and audience interaction. His one-of-a-kind live show has landed him extensive tours throughout North and South America, plus spots at world-renowned clubs like Fabric and Panorama Bar, and international festivals such as Sonar, Nuits Sonores, Synch and Reworks. Whether it’s house or techno, melodic or organic, percussive grooves, or rough and edgy snares, one thing is certain: And.Id delivers. With future plans to reconceive And.Id and B.A.N.D. for the live stage and studio, he is on course for further ingenious old-world takes on four-to-the-floor modernism. Moreover, And.Id’s individualized approach is a perfect reflection of the vision, passion, and love of music that continues to drive the extended mobilee team in all that they do, and all that will come.
