His original productions and remixes can be found on labels like Missile, Bush, CR2, Global Underground, Bulletdodge, Bedrock, Zync and many more. Andy’s unique style and sound earned him a spot on Jamiroquai’s Synchronized world tour in 1999, performing live as support act with a percussionist and a guitar player. His techno productions are played by all global DJs around the globe, such as Laurent Garnier, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Kevin Saunderson and Umek, while some of his deeper house tracks will be found on the playlists of Sasha, Luciano, Behrouz and Danny Howells.
When he is djing, Andy uses 100% concentration to give back a perfect sound by using up to four channels, looping on-the-fly and effecting. His sets are not just one-sided: they contain a bright spectrum of the 21st century’s modern dance music. From deep house to tech house to techno blending with dub and jazzy elements. Always fresh and funky with lots of soul. In the DJ booth, he is completely immersed in the sounds he’s producing. His positive and energetic style speaks a language that everybody understands and reacts to.
Andy has set up shop in Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, and Budapest, providing sound engineering, producing, and remixing to artists in every flavor of Electronic Music. He is also teaching Ableton Live since 2006 in New York, Miami and Budapest.

He has worked extensively with legendary Blade soundtrack producer Tim Taylor of Missile Records from London since 2003, completing a host of projects ranging from 70’s Disco bootlegs to pumping techno.
His most recent collaboration with New York City-based vocalist/saxophonist/songwriter Alex Haven has led to a 10-track electronica album with a smooth vibe of jazz, incorporating one of the most talented live musicians from Budapest and New York.

Andy has always been surrounded by music. His father showed him the way to this art form and eventual profession at the age of 6. Some of Andy’s early musical influences include The Beatles, Elvis, James Brown, Herbie Hancock, Depeche Mode and Jean-Michel Jarre. At the age of 14, Andy got his first turntables and a mixer and started making music, scratching, and cutting for a breakdancing troupe in which he was a performer. A few years later, when house music came on to the scene in Europe, Andy spun at college parties, building a buzz around his passion, and setting up residencies in and around clubs in South Germany.

Being one of the true pioneers of the electronic music scene, Andy has organized the first Hungarian float at the loveparade 1999 in Berlin, Germany playing in front of 1.5 million people.. He has also organized many events all over the Eastern Europe ranging from Estonia, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Serbia and Ukraine in the mid 90s and early 2000s. Many well-known DJs and acts has been brought to the countries in Eastern Europe for the first time through his efforts in the music and party culture.

Carl Cox has introduced Andy’s El Cabron Dub Version of Soulmate Records as Global Warmer in his highly acclaimed Global Radio Show (http://www.mixcloud.com/CarlCox/carl-cox-global-469/). Soulmate has featured artists like Trevor Rockcliffe, Paul Mac, Jim Masters, Agent Orange, Solid Gold Playaz, Gabriel Ben and Steve Mulder receiving a lot of support from techno djs like Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Slam and Cristian Varela.
