Andrew has released two EPs: “Flowers” with Theo Parrish (2012) and the “Andrew Ashong EP” (2014) which moved away from the dance floor sound of “Flowers” and interjected more soul and jazz inspired rhythms and textures. “A release less targeted to the dance floor, it instead chooses to retrospectively immerse in the ethics of true music”.
