Andy C


In the world of electronic music DJ Andy C is a big name. He has dedicated almost two decades of his life to the music he loves, flying across the globe week in, week out, to demonstrate his mastery. Growing up in Essex, young Andy got his first taste of the rave culture in the late 1980s from his older sister, listening to her rave tapes and local pirate radio. He bought a cheap pair of decks, spent plenty of sleepless nights practicing and endlessly mailing out demo cassettes. After a while a teenage boy founded the Ram Records, the logo of which was hand-drawn by his sister on the kitchen table at home. Ram’s third release in 1993 assured Andy a place in the history of dance music at the age of just 16. His list of awards is awesome. The last one being the Number One Drum & Bass DJ at the National Drum & Bass Awards in 2012. Some of his other awards include: DJ Mag Top 100 Best D&B DJ in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2010. National D&B Awards Best DJ in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. National D&B Awards Lifetime Achievement in 2008.
