What are you expecting from the second time playing in Hong Kong?
Big things! Pav & I both said that last time we played Hong Kong it was possibly one of THE BEST Hed Kandi gigs full stop. It had it all. Everything just seemed to fall into place and the Hong Kong crowd are so responsive it was like a dream come true. It went right off so hopefully this time around it will be just the same if not better.
What do you love the most of representing Hed Kandi globally?
Playing the music I love in every corner of the globe at some truly amazing venues to different crowds and cultures really does make me feel very lucky. When a gig goes well there is nothing more satisfying. From the age of 16 I always wanted to be a DJ and I can safely say I’m living the dream!
Who are your top 3 favourite DJs?
Jose Padilla has always been one of my all time heroes almost single handily bringing the whole Balearic vibe to worldwide attention. Sasha back in 2000 had the world at his feet culminating with THAT legendry Global Underground Ibiza album that was absolutely flawless. Beyond that I respect every working DJ especially the other Hed Kandi jocks and artists that help make Team Kandi so successful.
Can you tell us the best set you’ve ever mixed and why?
God, it’s hard to single one out as over the years there have been many that stick in my mind. Playing Amnesia terrace for Cream back in 2000 was a killer, I also have great memories of time at Mambo. Playing Australia was a dream come true for me, Hong Kong as I mentioned earlier was as good as it gets and earlier this year my gig at BPM Festival in Playa Del Carmen went absolutely right off.
Tell us something that no one knows about you.
I’m sure I’ve got a touch of O.C.D lol!!!
What are you busying at the moment?
Getting in the studio over the next 12 months has got to be a real must for me as I’ve got so many ideas that need to see the light of day. Also I’m really enjoying my gigs at the moment and working on my radio shows which you can find more information about at www.myspace.com/andywarburton
What is your future plan?
To keep working hard touring and getting some tunes out there on that rock the dancefloor.
