Born in NYC, grew up in NJ 20 minutes away from Manhattan. The youngest of 5, he was listening to music since birth. His oldest sister, who died in 2009, was one of the screaming girls at the Beatles concert. He started playing Bass at age 10. Was playing, and hanging out, in the underground punk clubs in NYC by age 16. Started making mixes at age 16 too using Techniques turntables, 4 track realistic mixer, sony 2 track reel to reel (with original Reverb/Echo) at his home in NJ. In those days, it was said that you could tell he was home because you could hear his stereo blaring out of his attic room window (the spot of many a party) from four blocks away. Over the years that followed, AC_DJ aka Andy Coles, honed his skills playing in many bands and clubs in NYC, Tucson AZ, and Portland OR. His music styles ranging from Rock to Punk to Metal to Ambient to Experimental to Traditional Irish. In 2002 he met up with DJ Guru (Bryce Tomlinson currently of New Depth Media) and became fast friends. Guru turned him on to the world of PC's, taught him how to build PC's, and started him on his love of digital music. With his oldest son becoming a huge fan of the band Daft Punk, he started to DJ again and has been going ever since. He is married, has two children, and currently resides in Portland OR where he can been seen playing in the local clubs as well as warehouse parties throughout the area.
