Andy McCarthy was born in the small Yorkshire seaside town of Whitby. Andy has always been interested in music, technology and computers, his first job straight out of school was working on Arcade conversions and later original software for the likes of Sega of Japan and Nintendo. Andy first fell in love with the house scene in the early 1990's and was a regular at the likes of the Sugar Shack in Middlesbrough, Godskitchen, Gatecrasher and the awesome Goodgreef. Family and commitments made Andy retire his clubbing shoes in the mid 00's. That was until he saw Deadmau5 at Creamfields in 2010 and this rekindled his love of the Dance Scene. Andy loved Deadmau5' use of computers and samples that reminded him of his early days developing computer games. On returning home from the festival he quickly purchased a copy Ableton Live and started to produce and perform his own music. He soon got regular work in small venues around the North East of England and has secured the 'big one' on the 6th May 2012, his Goodgreef debut. Andy credits his main influences as Moguai, Michael Woods, Deadmua5 and Wolfgang Gartner.
