A born musician, Andy Moor could play his first piano piece flawlessly at the age of 5 and continued to play six more instruments to the age of 12. He spun his first record at 13, signed his first label release at 19, by 21 was playing to crowds of thousands and at 25 owned his own record label.

Yet his catalogue extends far beyond that of productions under his own name, where his contributions to various acts display his versatility as a producer.
His addition to the legendary UK trance act Tilt resulted in the critically acclaimed ‘Explorer’ album.
