Much more than just a DJ, Andy C is a true figurehead for the Drum ‘n’ Bass movement, within which he has been an instrumental player since its very beginnings; his DJ sets and own seminal productions helping to evolve the genre through the many stages of its evolution. Andy’s dedication to dance music is only matched by his list of achievements.
Ram’s third release, the classic ‘Valley Of The Shadows’ (with Ant Miles under the Origin Unknown moniker) in 1993, assured Andy a place in the history of dance music at the age of just 16. As the 1990s went on, and Drum ‘n’ Bass emerged from Jungle, Andy’s impeccable DJ sets consolidated his status as an essential at any big rave, while Ram continued to develop into one of the most forward thinking and consistent labels in dance music. Two albums followed for Origin Unknown, ‘Speed Of Sound’ and ‘Sound In Motion’, before Andy and Ant linked up within another long-standing local friend, Shimon, to form the mighty Ram Trilogy. In 1999 the trio released ‘Molten Beats’, a landmark Drum ‘n’ Bass album that signified just how far the genre had come.
Andy was - and continues to be - repeatedly voted “Number One” at every D&B awards ceremony going, confirming his reputation for near super-human skills behind the turntables with every set. In 2003 Andy released the first in his ‘Nightlife’ mix series, winning universal acclaim for its selection and construction of which the 6th volume was just released.
Not content with just being behind the decks, in 2011 Andy launched his interactive stage show, Alive, and toured all corners of the globe with it. Andy also stepped back in the studio for remixes for Example & Laidback Luke, DJ Fresh, Eric Prydz, Plan B, Porter Robinson, Rudimental and Major Lazer. Andy is now working solidly on solo material, with a view to releasing an album in the not to distant future.
