There is just enough time before NYE to cram in a few more tour announcements for what looks to be a very busy start to 2006 for clubbers. This time around it is the turn of one of the Dons of D'n'B, Andy C.Together with the highly respected MC GQ, Andy C returns to Oz this January for his highly anticipated Nightlife Tour.
Andy's start in the business came when he was unbelievably just 15, and teamed up with good mate Ant Miles to experiment with production. The result was the ‘Valley of the Shadows’ under the Origin Unknown alias, a track still regarded as one! of DnB’s most classic offerings. Andy began Ram Records in 1992 on a shoestring budge of £1000. Few could have imagined what an impact the label would have. A name synonymous with quality, Ram has been the platform for DnB supergroup the RAM Trilogy (Andy C, Ant Miles & Shimon). The group’s industrial-charged ‘No Reality/Scanners’, ‘Mind Overload/Intercity’ and ‘Chase Scene/Terminal’ were scene-ruling anthems.
One of the most celebrated DnB artists in history, Andy C has scooped the award for ‘Best DJ’ at the Knowledge awards and by website Drum ‘n’ Bass Arena, as well as being recognised at the Accelerated Culture’s ‘People’s Choice Award’ in 2002.
Dubbed ‘The Executioner’ for his cut-throat mixing skills and killer performances, Andy is touring Oz to promote Nightlife 3, the latest edition in his cutting-edge compilation series featuring the who’s who of DnB, and capturing the essence of where this dynamic sound is headed. The album features Sub Focus, Shimon, Dillinja, Pendulum, Fresh, Moving Fusion and more.
Joining on his upcoming tour of Oz by MC GQ, a man voted no.1 MC at the Hardcore Awards and considered by many to have the best flow in the biz.
