A lot has been said recently about Pacha and its moves away from pandering to the ‘Superstar Dj’ and i personally back them 100%. Today we continue to celebrate real music from Dj’s who don’t need 100K to open their laptop.
Today we speak to Andrew, i picked up on Andrews music through listening to a mix he posted on twitter and subsequently went through his mixcloud. Andrew has kindly done a mix for us and i managed to ask him a few questions.
Hi Andrew and thanks for taking the time to talk to me, and especially putting a mix together for the blog.
Firstly a bit about yourself, who are your musical inspirations when it comes to what you listen to? Is it a Dj, or maybe even a venue?
I’ve been into electronic music since around 97, from listening to the early Ministry of Sound ‘The Annual’ compilations and it all kind of went from there. I’m a big fan of DJs and live acts who have their own sound. Acts like Maya Jane Coles, Dubfire, Solomun and The Chemical Brothers. They are instantly recognisable when you hear a track or set from them. I also love DJ’s like Chris Liebing who really embrace technology to take their sets to the next level and blur the line between DJ and live act.
