Grammy-award nominated Andy Moor is a groundbreaking DJ and Producer in the electronic dance music scene. In his illustrious career, Andy has established a distinct, edgy and creative sound that is all his own. This sound, combined with his technical perfection led him to be highly ranked in the DJ Mag Top 100 for the past 6 years. In 2009 he was nominated for the DJ Awards, in 2006 he won “Best Dance Record” at the International Dance Music Awards, and in 2004 he won “Best Trance Producer” and “Best Trance Track”. Owner of the highly respected AVA Recordings record label, producer of the ‘Moor Music podcast’ and producer & remixer to the star’s, it all started from humble beginnings.
Andy Moor started exploring the potential of his talent early in life – at the tender age of 5, he could already play his first piano piece flawlessly. By age 11 his musical ability furthered to include 6 more instruments. Two years later he spun his first record and by 21 he was playing stages and concerts to thousands. Now, at the 31-year mark, Moor is considered one of the most influential figures in today’s electronic music industry.
Within the past year Andy has rocked the electronic dance music world yet again with his production – “She Moves” featuring the vocals of Carrie Skipper. The track struck chords with fans and critics alike. Its frequent appearance in clubs and on radio shows quickly caused this track to be a favourite to many, quickly raising it to the ranks of previous fan favourites. Shortly thereafter Andy was asked to remix the Signalrunners production “These Shoulders”, a task which he gladly undertook. Other past remixes and collaborations have included the likes of DJ Tiesto, Above & Beyond, Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne, Paul Oakenfold and more.
Despite his rise to prominence in the scene, Andy has remained incredibly grounded, communicating frequently and affably with his fan base through various social networking channels. In the studio Moor has been at the forefront of the rapidly evolving music scene, constantly pioneering new sounds and techniques rather than relying on a tried and tested production formula. When he’s not in the studio or on tour, Andy stays busy running his own record label AVA Recordings, which has remained one of Armada Music’s strongest outlets, consistently releasing the finest in progressive and trance from a talented roster of new and veteran producers including: Ashley Wallbridge, Tydi, David Forbes and Tritonal.
Many new and future AVA releases can be heard on his podcast, “Moor Music”, which has recently undergone a facelift increasing its frequency from monthly to fortnightly. Available through iTunes and with an ever expanding army of loyal followers and subscribers, the tracks are handpicked and mixed to perfection by Andy himself and are a true reflection of what you can expect to hear him play live at any of his shows or concerts across the globe.
This year Andy plans to reduce his tour diary, with the intention to spend some more time in the studio. After his 2005 collaborative album “Explorer” with Tilt received such a positive reaction, plans were put in place for Moor’s own artist album, which fans will be delighted to hear is well under way. Although his tour dates may be temporarily slowing down in order to concentrate on the new album, the future of the Moor legacy shows no signs of stopping anytime soon…
