In Sydney Andy is managed by the awesome team at Absolute Infinity, which has seen him playing in venues like Quakers Inn, Peakhurst Inn, Lowenbrau Keller in the Rocks, Jackson’s On George, Carmen’s Nightclub in Miranda, Bristol Arms Retro Hotel, Scruffy Murphy’s, The Marly, Unity Hall Hotel Balmain, the Hard Rock Cafe (Darling Harbour), Ettamogah Hotel, Dee Why Hotel, Albion Place Hotel, Mounties, Mt Annan Hotel, The Oakes Hotel (Mosman), The Winston and Richards On The Park (Canley Vale).
While in NZ Andy has held Christchurch residencies with Malbas, Base, Taxi Club, Liquidity, Azure, Ferment, ClubNRG, Smile Clubbing NZ, The Church and Trinity nightclub. He has often guested at Christchurch’s top clubs over the last decade including Ministry, Base, Mansion and the Civic. His largest crowd to date has been supporting Andy Hunter at Parachute Festival Extreme in front of 15,000 in 2003. One of New Zealand’s hardest working professional DJ’s, Andy was honoured to appear in the main support slot at Lagered (NZ’s best known trance night) on its triumphant return to Christchurch after an absence of over two years.
Internationally he’s performed as far afield as Smile in London and Buzz in Chicago, and at a huge list of dance parties including events like Lagered, Liquification, Nitrate, Alpine Unity, Sundissential, Serotonin, Dirty Trancing, Area51, Wobble, Leviathan 2, First Mission, N-R-G and Samsara, and many more. He has played support to Sneaky Sound System (twice!), Steve Hill, Andy Hunter, Dave Holmes, Skol, Tony Burt, Daniel Ro, Rob Tissera, Eddie Halliwell, Dr Duzzit, Scott Mortimore, Sample Gee, The Marshall, General Lee, Tim Phin, Archie, Jon Ferris, OB1, Kenesis, Alex K, Justin Sane, Kyle Bourke, Disko Diva, and more. He loves travelling and is always looking for an excuse to pack a crate and jump on a plane.
Primarily known for playing house, electro and uplifting trance, with a background in corporate & private functions he is also able to spin commercial tunes, progressive, dubstep, drum & bass, breaks or whatever else is required for a particular event. With a massive music collection of over 50,000 tunes assembled over many years, Andy can play to any crowd.
In March 2004 he DJed live on stage at the Court Theatre as a cast member of GEEZERS, an improvised theatrical show that ran to packed houses for a full four week season, playing the beats of London’s East End, with breaks, D&B, garage and house beats. The show toured nationally for five weeks during August 2005. The success of Geezers was followed by another show with the same cast called ROCK ON (Oct/Nov 2005), where Andy sound-tracked a nightly feast of classic heavy metal.
In October 1999 with a business partner he started Pulzar FM, Christchurch’s original home of dance music, a radio station that was considered the leading high energy dance format in NZ in the early 2000’s, even though it was broadcasting only on low power. Pulzar FM successfully secured a full power radio frequency (the first in Christchurch since 1991!) and relaunched Pulzar FM Canterbury-wide on 18th April 2009 on 105.7fm.
He expanded his love of radio with the launch of Urban Breaks, a d&b / hip-hop / breaks station, in November 2004, operating 24/7 from a studio in a popular inner city café. This station closed down early in 2009.
In July 2011 following the devastating Christchurch earthquakes and the destruction of Malbas nightclub, Andy relocated to Sydney, and is playing somewhere around Sydney pretty much every Friday and Saturday night through his booking agents, Absolute Infinity.
