COOKie (Andrew Cook) has been obsessed with electronic music since the age of 18. After being inspired by what he saw others behind the decks doing he began to teach him self to mix records immediately Inspired by artists such as John Digweed, Maetrik, Citizen Kain, Boris Brejcha, Richie Hawtin and Gareth Whitehead, he continued to develop his style delving into anything between , Techno, House and Minimal.
Over the next few years COOKie would hone his skills to a level that would see him play some of the best clubs in Melbourne. Some of these include Lounge, Brown Alley, Miss Libertine, Bimbos, Killing Time, Circus, The Railway, My Aeon, Revolver and New Guernica. With seamless mixing, great track selection and an energy in his sets that keeps everyone fixated to the groove, COOKie’s skill and passion for the music really show out in his sets, with a thick, driving, rolling sound, high energy and a dash of funk, to always keep the punter moving.
COOKie has also recently played some of Melbourne’s outdoor parties and festivals, including Chi Wow Wah Town, Forgotten Kingdom and Local Produce. In April 2015 he was invited and flown over to play multiple sets at Afrikaburn festival in South Africa, the highlight of his DJ journey so far. In 2016 COOKie was again invited back to Afrikaburn Festival for a second year running after excelling with some outstanding sets the year before.
