Andy Farley was born Down Under in Brisbane in 1966 and came to England in 1968, when his parents moved back. The mid-eighties was spent collecting 60s R&B and Soul records, which he built up into a huge collection, eventually selling them when the beats took hold of him and buying his first set of decks with the profits!
Farley began clubbing on the Birmingham gay scene in 1987 and was totally blown away by all the Hi-NRG music of the time. What really impressed him was that all these great tunes were being mixed together. He realised that this was what he really wanted to do and took the first steps on the road to being a superstar DJ.
His first major break came when the late, great Tony de Vit was resident at The Nightingale Club. De Vit changed his music policy drastically from Hi-NRG to Belgian rave , a bit of a culture shock for many people at the time. Farley was asked to come in and play the Hi-NRG stuff in his place and that, as they say, was that.
Changing to house music around 1993, Andy began to play at other clubs in and around Birmingham, before beginning his residency at Sundissential in 1996 and he hasn?t looked back since, guesting all around the UK and indeed the rest of the world.
Release-wise, Andy has recently mixed ‘Nukleuz Presentz,Hard House Nation II’ compilation as well as lining up several of his own tunes ready for dancefloor assault on the Nukleuz imprint. Due for imminent release is ‘Out Of Control’ on Paul Glazby’ new imprint as well as a yet untitled tune, recorded with fellow hard houser BK.
