ANDY C & MC ARMANNI REIGN
(Ram Records | UK)
In the world of electronic music, there are few bigger names than that of Andy C. Regarded as one of the greatest DJs ever to touch a turntable, the Ram Records founder is one of the most iconic and important figures in global dance music culture, and his dedication to the music he loves is only matched by his list of achievements.
Having won dozens of awards for his near-superhuman DJing skills, Andy C’s incredible career has taken him from early-90s raves in his native Essex to the terraces of Space in Ibiza and the Oxford University Union. And while Andy has consistently wowed crowds from behind the decks, his productions as part of Origin Unknown and later Ram Trilogy have solidified a reputation as one of the most important figures in the evolution of drum & bass.
As his ‘Nightlife’ series of mix CDs consistently take the sound of drum & bass ever further, Andy still finds time for the label he set up as a 16 year old; Ram Records. Through the label, Andy C has been instrumental in the rise of two of the biggest names working in electronic music today, Chase & Status and Sub Focus, and he continues to search for the next frightening talent to nurture and develop beneath the Ram banner.
You would think that with all this what else can Andy surely do? How about a stage show to celebrate the true skills of the DJ… Andy developed a bespoke award winning stage show called Alive in 2011. This fully interactive show which is visually run by the man himself whilst playing a different unique set at each performance, has wowed thousands of people around the world. This coupled with his recent remixes for the likes of DJ Fresh, Eric Prydz, Plan B, Porter Robinson, Rudimental and Major Lazer, where his mix of Get Free went on to be play-listed at Radio 1. It’s clear that the man they call ‘The Executioner’ isn’t softening up… in fact, he’s sharpening his axe.
