Influences: Kelvin Andrews

Veteran selector Kelvin Andrews shares his influences.

Kelvin Andrews is a bit of a selectors selector. 

The veteran disc jocket first started playing records back in 1982 and since then he’s held down residencies at both Golden, between1992-1996, and The Bomb in Nottingham between 1996-2000. Over the many years he’s been involved in music there aren’t many aspects that he’s not turned his hand to, whether that be running labels or working prolifically as a producer and remixer.

However, what he’s been known for most in recent years has been his DJ sets as Down to the Sea and Back alongside Balearic Mike. This guy’s breadth of knowledge on music is second to none and with him playing at the South London shindig Dabble on Saturday 11th February it seemed like a perfect time to dig into his bag and pick out some of the records that have influenced him over the years.

Tomita Dead 2016 Rip Clair De Lune From Snowflakes Are Dancing

Tomita - Clare De Lune With so many famous musical greats dying in 2016, there were some lesser known, yet equally influential artists who slipped away without a fanfare . One incredible artist some may have missed making the trip was Isao Tomita. I discovered this as a 25p charity shop special when I was 15 years old and still have the copy (Snowflakes Are Dancing LP) A sublime, synthesised version of Debussy's love song to the moon. It just gets me every time. There's no doubt I'm an incurable romantic!
