Dj / Producer / Record Collector
STRIPPED DIGITAL as 'DARKND'.
CHAPTER 24 Records as one half of 'QUARTZ'.
So far 15 years within DJing has exposed ANDY to all levels of events and venues, including sets at Ministry Of Sound for Subliminal Sessions & Toolroom, multiple seasons warming up the Terrace at Amnesia for Cream, a 5 year residency arena slot at the mighty Creamfields and playing Bedrocks 10 year anniversary, all while warming up for / playing alongside some of the industry’s most respected artists: ( Sasha, John Digweed, Nick Warren, Hernan Cattaneo, Eric Prydz, Apparat, Erick Morillo, Mark Knight, Edu Imbernon, King Unique, Soul Button & many more).
The last year has witnessed the launch of 2 production projects for ANDY, the first was his solo project “DARKND”.
Under this direction ANDY found a route to release productions that sway toward his fondness for tougher and darker electronic sounds, with the opening COMA EP (on Stripped Digital) he quickly reached top 20 on various top 100 download charts and had support from some of his most respected peers.
The second release route for studio productions comes in the form of “QUARTZ” with friend and mentor PAUL NOLAN (Chapter 24 Records). The pair began their releases with highly respected CRYSTAL’s EP on Chapter 24 Records and received high praise from the long list of names who showed support, with remixes from the likes of Melokolectiv coming in, the list to work on their releases is looking impressive.
ANDY also has a passion and history of passing on his skills and experiences, mainly in the form of DJ tuition, where for 2 years he ran and taught courses for Ministry Of Sound DJ Academy both in London and Internationally.
With many more tracks and EP’s in the release schedule, the future again is looking very positive . .
