EMPT Presents Indaba Music Weekly: DJ Andrew OPTIMIST – “Treetocs”


Another week, another up and coming artist.

Andrew Lauric, AKA DJ Andrew OPTIMIST, is a producer with a swash of influences. Born in Bucharest, but raised in Chicago, he has an ear for the deepness of Chicago house, but also utilizes hip-hop textures. One striking thing about his production on the song “Treetocs” is the use of space. Each element sits nicely in the mix—the vocal chop does an interesting rhythmic dance with the gurgled electronic sounds, and the synth layer creates a nice bed that ties the tune together.
