At the time he was listening rap and hip-hop. He was a member of a breakdance performance group and was making the music behind the decks by scratching and cutting for the breakdancers. Couple years later when house music came to Europe, he got infected by the beats and rhythms. Andy began to spin at school and student parties while playing with 2 tape decks and 2 turntables.
Then he had a residency for a small club next to Mannheim, Germany. Before moving to Hungary in 1997 he ran a club in Germany where he organized drum´n´bass, house as well as techno events. After exploring almost every style of electronic music, Andy decided to represent the sound of Techno. Andy Slate uses 100% concentration to give back a perfect sound by using the DJM600 mixer, 3 Technics MKII turntables and a laptop. His sets are not just one-sided: they contain a bright spectrum of the 21st century´s modern dance music.
Andy prefers to play funky techhouse and techno filled with progressive minimal beats and deephouse grooves. When Andy is playing behind the decks, he is totally fusioned with the sound coming out of the sound system. His positive and energetic sound makes everybody dance and happy. Andy always tries to let the music speak in a language that everybody understands.
Over the past 15 years, Andy Slate has played along with many well known artists: Dave Clarke, Jeff Mills, Josh Wink, Tim Taylor, Green Velvet, Umek, Kanzyani, Paul Mac, Marco Bailey, Kenny Larkin, Stacey Pullen, Mike Grant, Steve Stoll, Misjah, Anthony Shakir, John Acquaviva, Colin Dale, Takkyu Ishino, Adam Beyer, Acid Junkies, Monika Kruse, Westbam, DJ Duke, Supa DJ Dmitry and many more. In 1997 Andy organized the first Hungarian Float at the loveparade in Berlin. This was a major achievement for the Eastern European Electronic Scene as this was the first time ever that an Ex-East Bloc Country took part at the loveparade. Two Years later, he managed to take part again with a Hungarian Float at the loveparade Berlin in 1999 which was the most visited loveparade ever with almost 1.5 million people from all over the world.
In the same year, Andy was invited to play as support act at Jamiroquai´s Synchronized World Tour in Budapest where Andy performed live together with Duel (lead guitar) and Kingkonga (percussionist) in front of 15.000 people. His technotive productions are played by the biggest djs around the globe. You can find his tracks on the playlists of Dave Clarke, Laurent Garnier, Carl Cox, Joey Beltram, Kevin Saunderson, Misstress Barbara, Umek and a lot more. On the other side, his deeper and more house tracks are played by Deep Dish, Behrouz, Circulation, Danny Howells and Desyn Masiello. These days Andy is working a lot in the studio doing new tracks and remixes.
Since 2003 Andy started to work with Tim Taylor (Missile Records London) on several remix projects reaching from 70s disco rare grooves up to ruff techno beats. To realize this, Tim Taylor moved for almost one year to Budapest. In the meantime, Andy has setup a recordingstudio and a high-professional masteringstudio in Budapest. In 2005 Andy has launched 2 new labelprojects called spacegypsie reflecting more deep´n´fresh techhouse sound and dizkotronik bringing some special re-edited & remixed 70s disco and funk classics flavoured with jackin beats.
