Andrew K (Andreas Karampatzakis) was born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece. He started his dj career in an early age, with the assistance of the local agency “Underground Lessons”, run by Dj Leoni. Over the years he has steadily built a profile for himself by delivering quality dj sets, with excellent technique and programming both in clubs and radio shows.
During the summer of 2004, Andrew found himself between the top 10 of new-talent djs, in a competition run by Global Dj Broadcast and Markus Schulz. His set was selected through hundreds of entries from all over the world and made a big impression. It was then when Markus Schulz said for Andrew: “G.Pal has some company in representing Greece. This set was chalk full of energy. Nice mixes and a solid tracklisting to boot!”
As a producer, Andrew K has already over 20 releases under his belt on labels such as the famous Global Underground, Mo-Do, Babylon, Vapour, Pure Substance, Armada, Wallop and more. His tracks have been supported by djs as Sasha, John Digweed, James Zabiela, Nick Warren, Hernan Cattaneo, Armin Van Buuren, Markus Schulz and Mashtronic, just to name a few, and aired in radio stations as Radio 1 (UK), Kiss FM (UK) and Metrodance (AR) and many others worldwide.
They might say that a good producer doesn’t make a good dj as well, but you will find that with Andrew K this is definitely not the case! The demand for him is constantly rising worldwide, and the list of the places he performs is growing rapidly. Some of the countries he has played are Argentina, Mexico, USA, Germany, Panama, Peru, Indonesia, Czech Republic, Hungary, India, Slovakia, Egypt, Turkey, Italy, Cyprus, Bulgaria and more. Furthermore, in the summer of 2006, Andrew had two nights in one of world’s most renowned venues, Cavo Paradiso at the island of Mykonos, Greece.
With technology advancing yearly, it is not a surprise to see Andrew take djing to the next level. Andrew now plays a semi-live set, making every performance unique by taking the max out of today’s top technology.
Besides focusing on his career path, Andrew K is also working as A&R for Pure Substance Records and Underground Lessons. All in all, it is a safe bet to say that he is one of the best around worldwide with his productions and dj sets.
