Introduced to the illegal rave scene as a young teen, Andy C started his DJing and production career while still a school-boy in Essex. On leaving school at 16, he blew off a career in printing and created Ram Records, the seminal drum n bass label he still runs with close friends. Twelve years on Ram's back catalogue has bloomed under Andy's A&R vision; with releases from Andy in many guises collaborating with the likes of Ant Miles, Randall and Shimon. As one of the most respected DJs on the scene, Andy regularly travels the globe with his drum n bass message. Few DJs or producers could claim to be as active and committed to their music as London's DJ Hype. Gaining experience as part of the Heatwave Soundsystem (part of Shut Up & Dance), he mixed reggae, hip hop and house with the 'all-inclusive' attitude he now applies to drum n bass. He's built soundsystems, A&R'd for Kickin' Records, worked with both indies and majors, and hosted radio shows on the seminal Fantasy FM and Kiss. Hype has pioneered drum n bass at home and abroad, fearlessly presenting all forms of the music to as many people as possible. His sets stand as testament to the range and diversity found in drum n bass.
