Andre is currently in the studio putting the final mixes on his upcoming EP, Top Of The World to be released early 2011.
“I wrote my first single, Off In The Club because I wanted to create Urban Electro. A new movement that combines pop-electronic beats and puts something urban over the top of it, that way everybody will gravitate towards it.” says Andre. “I was motivated to write the song Ready To Dance by a YouTube video I saw of kids in Melbourne, Australia doing this hot dance called The Melbourne Shuffle. I had never seen it done in the US and it was a movement I wanted to be part of”.
Aside from performing, Andre is slated to participate on the scoring of an upcoming film titled State Of Control
