Since 2005, Andy Warburton has been representing the stylish and iconic Hed Kandi music brand. Racking up those air miles as he travels extensively to rock international dance floors across global Kandiland. To date, he’s played in over 46 countries, 200 cities from Australia to Brazil and everywhere in between.
Famed for his flawless mixing skills, Andy’s talent behind the decks has been mastered during a DJ career spanning back to 1990, the ‘Summer Of Love’, when he first fell in love with Acid House and Balearic Beats. Brought up listening to all things Balearic, Andy followed his love of eclectic music, which in turn led to a 6 season affair on the mecca party island of Ibiza, playing every major club alongside the most respected names in the EDM scene, while holding residencies at legendary venues Café Mambo and Pacha.
Yet, no matter the location, be it near or far, Andy continues to prove himself an ace exponent of the Hed Kandi house sound blend. It’ll therefore come as no surprise to learn that his extensive musical knowledge has proven invaluable during the co-compiling process of so many of the Hed Kandi music compilations such as Serve Chilled, Beach House and Nu Cool series.
Andy's move back in 2012 to Toronto, Canada was a game changer in his career due to the offers to become the resident DJ in two of North Americas leading EDM cities. New City Gas in Montreal and Cinema Nightclub in Toronto are two of Canada's leading venues that host all of the biggest artists within the EDM scene. That spring he headlined BPM festival, Playa Del Carmen, along with a peak time slot at Digital Dreams festival that grossed over 25,000 clubbers on Canada Day weekend at Ontario Place, Toronto.
Since then Andy has headlined Arena festival, Playa Del Carmen, toured every every major city in Canada headlining Toronto’s newest super-venues Cabana and Uniun whilst also holding down long term residencies at Toronto uber hot-spots such as, The Thompson Hotel, Buonanotte Restaurant and Ivy, Vaughan.
With a new home in a new city when he's not banging out his brand of "Sexy Slammin' House”, Andy is in the studio producing and writing full time. Expect some cool, groovy, house bangers to be topping the charts, and rocking dance floors everywhere in the near future.
