Andres Sanchez Biography
“This man is on fire!” A State of Trance @asot (#ASOT663)
“…another new talent that you will hear a lot from him in the future.” Aly & Fila (FSOE#262)
Andres is a British/Spanish DJ and producer hailing from London, England. Andres has been a DJ since his university days and is one of the fastest rising stars in the UK trance scene. He enjoys a variety of styles but considers himself a specialist in uplifting, tech and progressive trance.
Andres’ first official release was an uplifting remix of Andy Tau’s summer trance stormer ‘Hope’ released by Infrasonic Recordings in May 2011:
He followed this up with a belting tech-trance collaboration with long-time Infrasonic regular Sean Truby, entitled ‘Get Real’. It became the debut release on the now well-established Infrasonic sublabel, Interstate Recordings:
Andres originally appeared under the guise ‘Dirty Sanchez’; having started out producing whitelabel trance and electro bootlegs. Several received widespread support, most notably his rework of Marco V and Prodigy entitled ‘The Loops are No Good’, which was played on BBC Radio 1 by Judge Jules:
Andrés soon had original material appearing on Slinky and Unearthed Records; as well as collaborations on Kill the Lights (with Trilucid) and Monster Digital (with Chris North, as “North & Sanchez”). He also featured on the remix package for the 2012 re-release of Suncatcher’s classic anthem “Losing Daylight”, released on Alter Ego:
2013 saw two plays on BBC Radio 1 (on Residency Shows hosted by Jordan Suckley and Simon Patterson respectively) for the North & Sanchez collaborations “Kapow” and “Ooosh!”; and later on that year Andrés also marked his debut on A State of Trance Radio, as the massive uplifter (in the words of Armin Van Buuren himself) “Ganymede” being played on ASOT614:
More recently Andrés’ productions have been brought to the attention of the trance establishment at Dutch mega-label Armada. Aly & Fila have been long-time admirers and in 2014 three of Andres’ original productions were signed up to their internationally-renowned label, Future Sound of Egypt. Two of these (“Raw Nerve” and “Until Amnesia”) went on to appear on A State of Trance Radio in May 2014 (ASOT663):
The latter, “Until Amnesia”, will also feature on the forthcoming Ministry of Sound “Trance Nation” compilation, to be released in May 2014:
Garnering support from trance luminaries such as Armin van Buuren, Aly & Fila, Ben Gold, Sean Tyas, Simon Patterson, Bryan Kearney, Jordan Suckley, Manuel Le Saux and many more; Andres’ name will be on the lips of many a trance fan today, tomorrow and well into the future. As Aly & Fila put it, Andres is certainly one to look out for…
