Andrew Grant

Being part of the Circoloco family and resident DJ of DC10 in Ibiza for over 7 years, Andrew Grant has experienced many things. This time spent touring the world’s best clubs and playing alongside the world’s best DJ’s has helped him to gain a reputation for being one of the most consistent performing DJ’s in electronic music.

Andrew Grant is a man with a varied past and constantly evolving future.  Born and raised in the Washington, D.C. area, he started to DJ in 1988 spinning hip-hop at house parties and school dances.  His musical tastes soon shifted after his first visit to the famed New York City club Twilo in the mid 90’s.  After an evening under the Phazon sound system, he found himself immersed in more electronic based sounds. 
 
After graduation from university he decided that a move abroad was needed to properly re-engage his musical passions.  In early 2001 he spent a few months in Sheffield, England, throwing parties and DJing everywhere he could.  As summer approached he decided to roll the dice and purchased a one-way ticket to Ibiza for a deeper look into the scene.  Through hard work, and some lucky breaks, Andrew was invited to play Thursday morning after-hours at DC10.  After just two sets he was invited to play a main 3-5 hour slot on Mondays after Cirillo, his mentor.  At just 24 years old he became the first, and only, American resident of CircoLoco. 
 
This summer will be Andrew’s tenth as a resident for CircoLoco’s infamous Monday parties at DC10.  “I never thought I would travel the world with them after buying a one-way ticket that summer day ten years ago.  CircoLoco has allowed me to grow as a DJ and hone my sound all over the world.” 
 
Andrew started releasing his own works in 2001, and has seen his name on such labels as Plastic City, Unfoundsound, Siteholder Records, Isgud Records, Minisketch, and Barraca Music.  However, his output has really grown in the past few years with releases on Barraca Music, Little Helpers, Connect Four & Hallucination Ltd.  He has also collaborated with Lomez, Tale of Us, Los Updates & Ricardo Villalobos.  His evolution in the studio created the opportunity to be offered the position as Label Head for Barraca Music. 
 
Keeping with his DIY aesthetic, and his refusal to be stuck to one sound, Andrew started his own imprints in 2010, EDEC and Blau Motif.   “I started the two labels because I see EDEC grasping a wider new range of Techno and Blau Motif is for future listening - outside the club. I really felt moved to do this so these amazing artists had a platform to get their works released.”   
 
Now based in Valencia, Andrew continues his increased production schedule and looks forward to returning to the White Isle for yet another year with his most beloved residency.  There is no shortage of current projects or upcoming endeavors for Andrew.  His ethos of “hype and fashion is only superficial and does not last” continues on.  With Andrew the utmost quality is what matters most, and he never settles for anything less.
