Reflecting on his gig schedule, Andy Moor says: "I think my agent wants to see me as far away as possible. And with most gigs at least a continent away, I'm turning into a walking, talking piece of airplane food." Nonetheless, it's given him a chance to cement his reputation as one of the strongest and most imaginative trance jocks on the planet. This 25-year-old from Stoke-on-Trent has come a long way in a relatively short time.

Andy started making music at the age of five, and since then has worked with some of the biggest names in the business (Tiësto, Oakenfold, Brian Eno, Arthur Baker), making a name for himself both on his own and as part of various high-profile partnerships, including Tilt (Parks, Wilson and Moor), Leama & Moor and the huge-selling Whiteroom.
He's also set up his own label, AVA Recordings, but most of his time this year has been taken up with international DJing.
"There is definitely a positive feeling and vibe wherever I have been," he says. "But I'm hoping to slow down and get into the studio towards the end of the year."
