Andy Jackson’s many inspirations and influences stem from the start of the House music explosion in America in the late Eighties. Citing some of his House Heroes as Kerri Chandler, Todd Terry and Larry Heard, with labels such as Trax and Strictly Rhythm also making their mark.

Some have described Jackson’s vibes as “…being seduced by an instinctive groove which underpins all productions. His sound channels classic notions of Chicago and Detroit House, fusing addictive vocal cuts with a rolling groove which is subtly irresistible…”

Jackson went on to study Audio Technology and Electronics at university before taking a job as what he refers to as a ‘Radar Geek’ in the Air Force. Stints as an Architect and now Sound Engineer have all contributed to a very intricate and comprehensive understanding of what makes a track truly stand out.

Recent releases with Esa (Mervin Granger) Williams on Ralph Lawson’s FINA Records, and Esa’s own ReMemory Records have been dropped in some of the biggest clubs across the globe.

Andy sees the live performance element as an extension of the studio, with a gig being “almost like one big jam session, feeding from and responding to the crowd”.
