As a turntabalist for over a decade, Andy Woods has always been a dedicated followerer of the art of DJing. From early days as a vinyl DJ in his birthtown of Cleethorpes, right through to warming up for the DJ elite in Ibiza's super clubs and rocking festivals arenas. Growing up in a musical house with parents who collected northern soul vinyls, his true introduction to Djing came through close friends in his home town. Back in his teen years he was lucky to have a handful of dedicated local DJ's who were committed to the art and willing to pass on their skills. His education was watching other DJ's play and every weekend he would be the one peering into the DJ booth to see what new tip or trick could be applied at home.
His inspirations musically were more electronic, melodic, progressive and techno sounds. The likes of Sasha and Digweed, Paul Van Dyk and Carl Cox were very influential, while also being a huge admirer of house legend Steve Lawler.
In 2005 Andy came to Subbass DJ academy to attend the 'Advanced DJ' weekend course and progress his knowledge and skill base, his tutor, (and the man he still heralds as responsible for helping him perfect his techniques) was John Taylor.
Andy went on after the course and worked hard, posting mix demos and eventually getting to play to live audiences.
In the years since then he has excelled and played regularly throughout the UK, Europe and has spun as far away as Asia.
He has played some of the most desired dance floors in the world, been a regular at Ministry Of Sound, played multiple seasons at his favourite club Amnesia, warming up for UK super brand Cream (on nights with DJ's including Sasha, Nick Warren, Popof, Style Of Eye, Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz) and even held a 4 year residency at Creamfields.
Andy is a true testament to what can be applied through passion, determination and a general love for what you do.
