The past 2 years have seen Melbourne’s Sgt Slick turn his hand to multiple genres within the HOUSE realm, resulting in some of his finest production form to date… from the deeper grooves of “Sax Addict” (top 5 ARIA Club Chart, heavy DJ support from Roger Sanchez, Stonebridge, Cristian Marchi), to the big room electro boom of “Automatic Machine” (38 weeks in the ARIA Club Chart, including 5 weeks at # 1, and Beatport top 5) and on the Progressive tip, one of the biggest club tunes of 2009 “Right In The Night” (6 months in the ARIA Club Chart, 11 weeks at # 2, Beatport Progressive top 5, and rinsed by the likes of Kaskade, Robbie Rivera, Laidback Luke and Armin Van Buuren).
In 2010/11 he has already hit the mark with “Behind The Sun” (licensed to Italy’s coolest house label “Molto”) and has stormed ARIA and Beatport top 5’s with “Back On Black” and “Everyday”(support from Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia, Eric Morillo and David Guetta). His latest release “Like This” immediately tore up the Beatport chart, reaching number 2 and only being held off top spot by the world’s biggest electronic act, Deadmau5. His collaboration with world beating Dutch DJ “Chuckie” on “The Bass Kicks Like This” is next release on the schedule, and it has already hit the Beatport Top 10 with a sneaky pre release on the Dirty Dutch Digital Vol. 3 compilation.
In the clubs he has also made his mark on the decks, with a string of long term residencies in Melbourne and across the country. Regular slots at some of the nation’s biggest clubs and festivals such as Family, HQ, Bedroom, Discovery, Planet, Soho, Neverland, Summadayze and Future Music Festival have seen him supporting the likes of Roger Sanchez, Joachim Garraud, Carl Cox and Fatboy Slim. He has also been the DJ of choice for many major event after parties such as The Australian Open, Australian Grand Prix, Melbourne Fashion Week, and numerous motion picture releases, and is currently touring his Vicious “iCuts” Mix CD release around the nation.
With a 10 year relationship with Australia’s leading club label “Vicious” under the Sgt Slick moniker, he has a slew of releases to his name, including one of Australia’s finest house music moments in “White Treble Black Bass”. Topping club charts in Australia and all over Europe / UK, the track eventually netted Andy an ARIA award for Best Dance Release in ’98. Along with his output as “Sgt Slick”, he has achieved chart and club success at home and abroad with collaborations under the names “Blackout” (Gotta Have Hope), “Firefox”, (Sex Shooter) “Smash ‘n’ Grab” (She Don’t Like That) and “Andy J” (Tilt My Hat), and has “Slicked up” remixes for artists such as Stonebridge, Avicii, DONS, Jess Mauboy and Sarah McLeod. He co hosted and mixed the “Loaded” radio show on the Austereo Network for 5 years, has co hosted Nova’s “NovaNation”, and appeared on Triple J’s “Mixup” 3 times.
