Grammy-award nominated Andy Moor is a groundbreaking EDM DJ and producer. Throughout his illustrious career, Andy has established a distinct, edgy and creative sound that is completely his own. This sound, combined with his technical perfection, led him to be highly ranked in the DJ Mag Top 100 for the past six years.
In 2009 he was nominated for the DJ Awards, in 2006 he won “Best Dance Record” at the International Dance Music Awards, and in 2004 he won “Best Trance Producer” and “Best Trance Track“.
Some of his notable past remixes and collaborations have included the likes of:
- Above & Beyond
- Britney Spears
- Avril Lavigne
- Paul Oakenfold
Just to name a few. And although he now juggles between being owner of the highly respected AVA Recordings record label, host of the “Moor Music” podcast, and producer and remixer to the stars, Andy’s start was from humble beginnings.
Exploring the potential of his talent early in life, Andy Moor could already play his first piano piece flawlessly at the tender age of five. By the time he hit 11 years old, he had accomplished six more musical instruments. Two years later, he spun his first record and by 21, he was playing to thousands.
Now, more than 10 years later, Moor is considered one of the most influential figures in today’s electronic music industry:

Despite his rise to prominence in the scene, Andy has remained incredibly grounded, communicating frequently and affably with his fan base through various social networking channels. In the studio, he has been at the forefront of the rapidly evolving music scene, constantly pioneering new sounds and techniques rather than relying on a tried and tested production formula.
When he’s not in the studio or on tour, Andy stays busy running his own record label AVA Recordings, which has remained one of Armada Music’s strongest outlets, consistently releasing the finest in progressive and trance from a talented roster of new and veteran producers including:
- Ashley Wallbridge
- David Forbes
Many new and future AVA releases can be heard on his podcast, “Moor Music”, which has recently undergone a facelift increasing its frequency from monthly to fortnightly. Available through iTunes the tracks are handpicked and mixed to perfection by Andy himself and are a true reflection of what you can expect to hear him play live at any of his shows or concerts across the globe.
And while we’re at it, we just got word that he’s also releasing something pretty epic sooner than you can say “6th July 2012”. What is it? Find out tomorrow!
