Background

Andrew K's interest in music had him study piano and music theory. His hobbies include international music and collecting records have been amongst his first hobbies. His first attempts as a DJ were at friends’ birthday parties and small underground private raves. He subsequently began composing and producing his own tracks. This caught the attention of DJ Leoni who later signed Andrew to Underground Lessons Recordings (ULR) label. Acting as management, UL set him up with his first professional gigs, as well as having him join Leoni on his weekly radio show. Furthermore, ULR signed and released Inception EP: a collaborative effort with Simon Oates under the moniker of Junk Science. The EP was supported by a variety of international DJs and was aired at many Greek and internet radio stations.

Career

In a 2004 competition held by Global DJ Broadcast, Andrew made it into the top 10 ranking for "New Yalent DJs" when his music set selected from among hundreds of entries worldwide. Following the competition, his sets began being hosted on Proton Radio, Eccentic Beats, Global DJ Broadcast, Safari FM, Dance Nation and Di.fm, among others, and he began making public appearances as a DJ at events throughout Greece and abroad.

Continued work led to tracks that were signed to international labels, as for example Jataka which was intended for release on ULR, but caught the attention of Global DJ Broadcast's Markus Schulz, who eventually released the tracks on Armada and his compilation Coldharbour Sessions. This led to international recognition and additional labels signing Andrew for his productions and remixes, as well as well-known DJs licensing his tracks in mix compilations. As a DJ, he has many appearances worldwide, both in clubs and festivals worldwide, including the legendary Cavo Paradiso at Mykonos, Greece.

In 2007 Andrew K launched Vise Versa Music, a musical imprint bringing top quality, contemporary club music. The label has been excellently received by DJs and music fans worldwide, while some of the signed artists include Max Cooper, Robytek, Max Demand and David Granha.

Reception

Beat Factor gave Dj Leoni & Andrew K's compilation Flavours, a good review, noting "[Flavours] takes us for some good minutes through the electronic music universe, meeting in our travel all kind of musical tyles, from progressive house, break beat, through dark house and even some powerful beats with a tech-house flavour" and concluding after length "If it would be for a cd pool, I think Andrew K is the one who could gain, succeeding to bring in the front some great tracks mixed with a perfect skill".

Discography
