Andrew’s appetite for discovering and sharing new music both informs and fuels his DJ’ing; playing everything from international party belters as a founding member of Highlife (alongside Auntie Flo), to appreciating the art form of the warm up DJ; better yet, combining both and playing an extended set – something he regularly practices, playing all night at the legendary Salon des Amateurs in Düsseldorf and the mighty Bassiani in Tbilisi. Additionally, he’s rocked pool parties in Rio, rooftops in Istanbul and played at the majority of the best venues in the world; including Glastonbury, Barbican, Fabric, Nowadays, Good Room, Video Club, Le Sucre, Contact, Dommune, Corsica Studios, Razzmatazz, Sub Club, The Art School, Berghain Kantine, Tradgarden, Ohm, Dimensions festival. 2019 started with an extensive 4 month tour around Latin America and North America, as documented in this tour diary.
He hosts a regular show on Rinse FM, showcasing the best new and emerging talent from around the world and has contributed a range of his own mixes, podcasts and radio shows for esteemed outlets such as Dekmantel, Beats In Space, Boiler Room, BBC 6 Music, Truants and Crack Magazine. Not to mention, has recently been the subject of a documentary for Stamp The Wax.
