I thought it was that smiling guy in the TN hat who shagged her then robbed her? Or was that something else

Andy nicked the crown from Hype in...99/00/01?
 


Later than that IMO. This place started in 02 and he wasn't regarded as the undisputed don back then. And was it even Hype he nicked it off? Randall is and was the king of the 90s for me. Even Mickey Finn was top of the bill 95-97.

My memory is hazy but I'm sure Andy C didn't start the double dropping quick mixing ninja skills until around the Bodyrock era? Before that he was just rolling out clean and clinical sets. As soon as he started showing off though nobody has come close.


Personally for me Djing was never purely based just on how technical a DJ you are but also on what dubs you have and how you piece them together. That shock and awe factor.

With this formula Rider was the daddy for most of the 90's with Bukem covering off the early '90s for me. Towards the end of the 90's / early 2000 Ed Rush & Optical and then Bad Company took over.

Riders Blue Note sets and '97 Essential Mix are works of art as is Bukem's Dreamscape and Obsession sets circa '92

When it comes to Randall - well he's always been there hasn't he. Both technically and selection wise he's always been on point. Forever consistent and always DJs with integrity.

Andy C - it completely depends on what crowd he's playing to. He is technically the best Drum & Bass DJ there is or will likely ever be - absolutely no question. But I've seen him play the best set ive ever witnessed and ive seen him play a set that no grown man should be associated with because most of the music was so naff.

That said it's not really about him catering for my taste; the geezer fills stadiums and on his day he makes you scratch your head wondering how the fuck did he just do that - typically beautifully-crafted,rapid-fire blends that no other D&B DJ has the ability to emulate. He's literally leagues ahead.

Did anyone ever get a decent version of that xoyo set that papajaro filmed on his phone?

Would love a good quality copy.

Around the first Nightlife CD I think.

if anyone's interested in his setup and how he does things here's a little interview he did with NI

i do enjoy those sorts of interviews.




I like the way they've snuck in the potential use of a Pioneer turntable in there, when it's clear Andy probably (only) uses Technics:

Do Pioneer not own Technics?

No, it was Panasonic, but I believe they are their own business now.
 
And there are plenty of videos Andy playing on Pioneer decks recently too.

This bit...
 

Why stick with turntables?
It’s who I am, man. The irony is I played an old-school gig in London the other week. There were three turntables… Two didn’t work. I had to play for 45 minutes on one turntable, fading tunes down…
It’s those moments you’re like, “I’m never using turntables again.” Then you go home, and think about it, and… It’s just who I am. I do Technics – that’s my thing.

 
How didnt we know about this set? And how the fuck do you book Andy C and not give the man working tools?

i was thinking that. Sounds like be economical with the story to illustrate a point tbh, if Andy C was playing anything resembling old school, this place would be on fire.

We normally hear about Andy C playing London. We’d definitely know about it if he was playing on one turntable fading tunes up and down like a 1950’s radio DJ.

Why not just use one turntable to control both decks using the DVS internal mixing functions?

I think Marky used to do it a lot when first started using Serato at the start of sets when clubs didn't have all the DVS stuff ready. He'd mix like that while unplugging the other deck and plugging it into the sound card or something.

These days, I've sent a few hip-hop DJs mix on just one turntable and an integrated DVS mixer.
