Also known as Sanchez Dub, he has a definitive style that fuses electronic rhythms and digital programming with dub, delay and reverb harmonies. A pioneer in the Mexican music scene, his synthesis of African, Latin and Caribbean music with electronic rhythms opened what was an inhospitable route in Mexico. Collaborations with Fake Fazz and Wako Texas allowed him to flex his prowess for live improvisation on the bass, bringing a unique flavor of Jazz and Funk.
The construction of songs and organic sound of instruments translates Sanchez Dub into an exciting live band, a clear example is his latest single “Humans”.
Andrés lives and works in Mexico City.
