As we are more than aware at E.A.R HQ, it has been a rather long interval between our last podcast and now. However, there is more than a good reason for this – we were waiting for the right one. And here it is…
Andy Baxter has pieced together in excess of an hour long’s worth of pure house. And all on VINYL ONLY! Something we are sure you are aware, is ridiculously close to the heart of E.A.R.
Andy Baxter is an Ibiza resident of not only The Island but also of Pacha, where he has graced the decks every Summer for the last 10 years, playing pretty much every genre of music you could possibly imagine. And playing it well. This Summer he has warmed up for the likes of Cadenza, Defected, Swedish House Mafia and Subliminal, as well as hosting the Pioneer DJ Laboratory on the legendary Pacha Terrace where he shows visiting DJs how to get to grips with all the new Pioneer Equipment.
He has also been a resident at We Love… Space Sundays for the last 4 years, as well as doing Café Mambo sunsets. But in the Winter he really comes into his own. Not only does he present his own radio show on Ibiza Sonica called The Fix (22:00 EST/21:00 GMT Wednesdays), he also hosts his own party Pachatronica, at the iconic club on a monthly basis, bringing a unique, underground element and introducing emerging young talent selected by Baxter himself. Recent guests have included Bones from Black Rabbit and System of Survival. Read more here…
Baxter’s passion for new music also landed him the enviable role of A&R scout for seminal label Defected, after head honcho Simon Dunmore spotted his E.A.R for new talent in 2010.
But above all, his talent on the decks has made E.A.R sit up and take notice. A superbly versatile DJ, Baxter is as at home living out his obsession with vinyl, as he is demonstrating state-of-the-art equipment.
Listen to this sublime mix and hE.A.R for yourself. You WILL NOT be disappointed.
