I had the chance to meet Andy for the first time some years ago during his residencies in Overnight, a place where we still could hear eclectic line ups and a melting pot of new & old school repertoires. The parties there had a very unique vibe, at least since the XXIst Century since when the venues became so musically specialized and their sounds so repetitive.
One of the most special gigs, though, was his first one at the ‘Classic’ party at A Lôca in a Thursday evening of 2001 where the crowd went absolutely mad with DJ Andy’s wicked selection of A Guy Called Gerald, LFO, 808 State, Channel X, Bizarre Inc, Altern 8 between other old school rave anthems.
Anderson Cepeda (known as DJ Andy) was elected in 2004 the best Brazilian Drum & Bass DJ by Beatz Magazine and by the specialized website; in general, he is considered an essential icon of the Brazilian electronic scene since the beginning of the nineties, most precisely in 1992, times when the hardcore and the Techno-rave dominated the charts of the underground venues.
Once resident of the legendary club Overnight located on the east side of São Paulo, he became quickly an essential element on the development of the scene of his metropolis, influencing many generations with his high talent and quality repertories, which placed him among the best DJs of his country.
Since the middle of the nineties, DJ Andy has been upholding the Jungle – Drum & Bass scene with a terrific DJ technique and incredible performances all over the place. The large musical background he acquired all these years enabled him to play amazing Drum & Bass sets and also Old School ones, from House to Techno and Breaks. His agenda includes the best clubs, parties and festivals of Brazil, just like his historical gigs at Skol Beats and Brasilia Music Festival.
As a producer, DJ Andy released some of the latest Drum & Bass hits such as “Boh!” (Chronic Records / V Recordings), “Copacabana” (Phuturistic Bluez), “Get Make Me Higher” (with Drumagick on Phuturistic Bluez), "Shared Tears" (with Mikrob Feat Fusion Kru on Nemeisis Records), “Rock Me Baby” (with Danny L also on Nemesis Records), “Funk Dog” (Emotif Recordings /DZR), “Mainline” (with Mikrob on Emotif Recordings/DZR), and “Funk Thing” (also with Mikrob, on Grid).
