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 regular ‘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.
With Ram stronger and more diverse than ever, a non-stop DJ schedule, and regular Ram events at London’s Fabric, as the new decade develops it’s clear that the man they call ‘The Executioner’ isn’t softening up...in fact, he’s sharpening his axe.
GQ has always been a DJ's MC, seeing his role as a middle man between the DJ and the crowd rather than constantly demanding centre stage. His versatility is such that he has always been able to switch up to double time and tear down a rave, or keep the crowd bubbling to a liquid set. 'It's all about reading the crowd, and adapting your style.' This approach has meant that you are as likely to see GQ at One Nation alongside Hype as you are to see him with Goldie at a Metalheadz session. Consistency and adaptability have kept GQ at the top of the MC ranks for 15 years and has made him partner to pretty much all of the top flight DJs...
