Andy worked at the infamous Croydon record store Wax City back in the day, making lots of friends and contacts, while compiling an extensive record collection. Initially influenced by mid 90's DnB from the likes of Photek, Dillinja & Source Direct Andy started producing and had his first finished tune played by Bailey on BBC Radio 1Xtra.

Next step was signing his first tunes to local labels Jerona Fruits and then Inperspective Records, his affiliation with these labels and growing reputation helped him to begin DJing around the UK and Europe. Covering a broad spectrum of styles ranging from the darkness of True Human Emotions,  to the smooth, melancholy vibe of Reading by the White Lake, both out now on the acclaimed Utopia Music.

These days he works very closely with Mako's Utopia Music label, Ant TC1's Dispatch Recordings, Bryan G's V Recordings, Billy Denial's Siren imprint and Mr Joseph’s Fizzy Beats label. He also has music signed to Goldie's label Metalheadz which will be out later in 2017. He is a regular DJ at the popular Fizzy, Siren, Technicality and Jungle Syndicate nights, where he can show his passion for DnB of all styles, old and new.

Most recently Andy released a tune on Dispatch Recordings called Mercenary, a collab with Mako on his 101 EP, which has been receiving support on Friction's BBC Radio 1 show. He has also released a 16 track album, Lost Dubs (2003-2010) on his own bandcamp page. More music coming soon on Dispatch, Metalheadz, Inperspective and Jungle Syndicate.
