Andy's introduction to dance music began in the early ninitties with infamous Eden events such as 'the gate' and the early visitsl of acts such as Thomas Heckman and Nz's Mechanism allongside Wgtn's own crew providing Wellington it's first introduction to underground dance music.

From this introduction, Andy alongside keen partners in crime, Dave Wright (dJ Quamay) and Reece (lost knowledge) began spinning the wheels of steel any where they could wether it be on after-hours hijacking of Wgtn's Radio Active at 3am or parties of there own where they could.

This lead on to Andy promoting various events indoor and outdoor from 1995 thru to 1999 at venues such as Shed 6 on the Wellington waterfront and any unused warehouse space that could find.

Thru this promoting and early djing, Andy promoted many mad underground events with the likes of Japan's lord of the energy Yogi Biomenhenika, ex-Chch rave superstar dj Ob1 and countless other djs from Wellington and all over New Zealand.
