Andrew Weatherall is a leading British electronica DJ, producer and cult personality. Since, in 1991, Andrew Weatherall put on his producer’s hat and helped Primal Scream to deliver one of the most definitive albums in the history of British pop, Screamadelica, he has been a key character in the story of UK music and club culture. Uncompromising and unrefined, and a bad-ass DJ to boot.
He is one of the most eclectic DJs of all times, equally able to make people dance in a rockabilly or a dub set as with techno. He is a sought-after remixer, whose unique approach has been used by artists including Happy Mondays (his studio debut was his remix of “Hallelujah”), Bjork, New Order, Saint Etienne, and James. As a producer, he has launched to fame artists such as Beth Orton and Fuck Buttons; he has been member of memorable groups including 2 Lone Swordsmen, Sabres of Paradise and, more recently, the Asphodells.
A devotee of pop culture, Andrew Weatherall claims that the history of pop music is endlessly fascinating because of its intrinsic democracy. Weatherall has cited humor as an important component in his musical ideology. He is also a great conversationalist in a number of topics, ranging from literature and poetry to fashion and the arts, and how these shape youth culture.
To top it all: He was there – playing a key role – in almost all musical styles since the mid-1980s.
