The beautiful legacy of Andy Skopes continues with Goldfat Record’s next release “Where I’m From” featuring Mr Porter.
Andy was a talented producer who had been building up a mountain of reputation – with a slew of releases on heavyweight labels such as Metalheadz, V Recordings, Dispatch and Inperspective Records. Tragically, his time was cut short when he passed away from cancer earlier this year.
This emotional track – which first came to life 5 years ago as a free download on Soundcloud – now contains the vocals of Mr. Porter. Porter regularly MC’d with Andy during his Croydon residency at Spectrum. The same Mr Porter who Andy always said he wanted to do a vocal refix of the track with.
When Mr Porter first heard the tracks “brooding bassline and melancholic piano keys” he decided the lyrics should reflect his and Andy’s hometown, Croydon, hence the title ‘Where I’m From’.
Andy Skopes’ production fused together with a beautifully looped vocals from Mr Porter will cause the hairs on the back of your neck to raise sending shivers down your spine, while leaving you in a hypnotic trance on the dancefloor. 6 glorious minutes demonstrating the essence of Andy’s raw talent reminding us why he will be deeply missed by the scene.
With the great blessing from Andy’s family, all profits made by this track will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
