That’s a great bit of artwork.
Never met the guy but this has affected me much more than famous people’s deaths usually do.
Perhaps it’s the sense someone else mentioned that he was from “our moment” or maybe that he was probably Britain’s biggest contributor to dance music culture and someone I considered a bona fide genius (and still working at the highest level)?
Maybe it’s just ‘cos my best pal at work is being made redundant. I dunno.Posted 1 month ago
Nothing to add, RIP. Been thinking about it a lot today. The guy was a genius, spent my uni days listening to two lone swordsmen, sabres of paradise. Lots of great nights.Posted 1 month ago
Screamadelica was the album of the 90’s for me. RIP Andrew.Posted 1 month ago
@ThePerfectKiss oh the memories (or lack of!). Did you also frequent Lost in Brixton?Posted 1 month ago
I was listening to his mixes all yesterday and am loving his NTS shows today. Gorgeous breadth of music.Posted 1 month ago
Some “buried treasure” from Andy’s Black Notebook, there’s 11 volumes! Here’s the first 5Posted 1 month ago
Me and a pal train spotted his set at cream in the early 90s, just before all the beautiful people moved into the latest trendy club and killed the scene.
Passed him a 3 skinner halfway through smokebelch just as my Mitsubishi kicked in.

Just reading his obituary in Q and they had a bunch of tracks listed, so I made this for listening pleasure (it’s a playlist, though displays here as 1 track) (ah yes, I can change that 🙂 )Posted 2 weeks ago
