About ANDY C
With 40+ awards to date, DJ sets that see him play mainstages from EDC to Global Gathering, and a reputation as the go-to remixer for the likes of Major Lazer, Rudimental, London Grammar and beyond, Andy C’s list of achievements grows by the week.
A reputation as one of the most significant British artists in global dance music has been hard earned, but it’s hard to place the tipping points. Was it his performance at Radio 1’s Hackney weekend, where his set was watched online by more people than either Jay Z or Rihanna? When he performed to 85,000 people at Glastonbury in 2013? Or when his remix of Major Lazer charted on iTunes after being added to the Radio 1 Playlist?
Andy’s success and status as a festival main stage headliner and DJ who guarantees sell-out roadblocks are driven by a phenomenal work ethic and the kind of tour schedule that makes rock bands look like part-timers.
Recognised as a cover star by both Mixmag and DJ Mag (he also won the latter’s Best British DJ Award 2013), he recently sold out London’s Electric Brixton in a matter of days. His eagerly awaited Nightlife 6 compilation ran riot across iTunes dance compilation chart and hit No.1 on Beatport. Zane Lowe and Annie Mac gave his equally anticipated new original productions, ‘Haunting’ and ‘Workout’, pride of place on their Radio 1 shows, which in turn followed a special programme on Radio 1 dedicated to Ram Records itself.
Radio 1’s attention is easily justified. As the figurehead for Ram Records Andy’s nurtured and developed huge headline artists such as Chase & Status, Wilkinson and Sub Focus, turning it into one of the world’s most respected independent operations across recordings and now festivals like EDC Las Vegas, where Ram host their own arenas and stages.
Andy’s main signature motif as a DJ is that he’s guaranteed to be packing tracks that no other DJ has. Hunting, digging, searching and signing: he is constantly immersed in new music. Not only does this ensure a wholly unique experience when you see him live, but it also gives Ram Records a front row seat when it comes to spotting new artists… As the likes of Loadstar, Wilkinson, Calyx & TeeBee, Frankee, Delta Heavy, Culture Shock, DC Breaks, Hamilton, Mind Vortex, Chords and many more exciting talents will happily confirm.
With more new acts joining both Ram Records and its burgeoning sister imprint Program on a monthly basis, this synergy between Andy successes as a live performer and label’s creative director continues to develop with matchless merit.
