With 40+ awards to date, DJ sets that see him play mainstages from EDC to Global Gathering, and a reputation as the go-to remixer for the likes of Major Lazer, Rudimental, London Grammar and beyond, Andy C's list of achievements grows by the week.

This summer the internationally acclaimed drum & bass pioneer and RAM Records label head will be heading to U.S. and Canada for a string of all-star performances and festival dates.

This past weekend Andy C made history as the first dnb act to earn a spot on EDC LV's Kinetic Field Mainstage, which he followed with a performance on the RAM Records hosted Bassrush stage later that evening.

Andy C will continue to unleash his hardcore and edgy break-beats on American audiences this week with headlining club dates in New York and Miami.

From there, Andy C returns to the festival circuit for top-billing performances at Electric Forest, Paradiso, and Digital Dreams Festival.

A reputation as one of the most significant British artists in global dance music has been hard earned, but it's hard to place the tipping points.

Was it his performance at Radio 1's Hackney weekend, where his set was watched online by more people than either Jay Z or Rihanna? When he performed to 85,000 people at Glastonbury in 2013? Or when his remix of Major Lazer charted on iTunes after being added to the Radio 1 Playlist?

Recognized as a cover star by both Mixmag and DJ Mag (he also won the latter's Best British DJ Award 2013), he recently sold out London's Electric Brixton in a matter of days. His eagerly awaited Nightlife 6 compilation ran riot across iTunes dance compilation chart and hit No.1 on Beatport.

Zane Lowe and Annie Mac gave his equally anticipated new original productions, 'Haunting' and 'Workout', pride of place on their Radio 1 shows, which in turn followed a special program on Radio 1 dedicated to RAM Records itself.

As the figurehead for RAM Records, Andy's nurtured and developed huge headline artists such as Chase & Status, Wilkinson and Sub Focus, turning it into one of the world's most respected independent operations across recordings and festivals alike.

With more new acts joining both RAM Records and its burgeoning sister imprint program on a monthly basis, this synergy between Andy successes as a live performer and label's creative director continues to develop with matchless merit.
