Malaky is 34 year old Producer/DJ Andrew Brewin, specialising in the deeper, more soulful style of drum and bass. He has been producing seriously for the last few years, although caught the bug long before. Discovering music through his Father’s eclectic tastes and varied record collection, many hours were spent as a youngster flicking through radio stations with his older brother. Initially it was the mid 90’s Hip Hop that caught his attention, but stumbling upon pirate radio stations playing Jungle/Hardcore tracks was a huge eye opener. The next progression was learning and playing guitar in bands at the age of 14,and shortly after learning to Dj. It was around this time that artists such as Calibre were pushing the Liquid sound in drum and bass, and it became clear that there was a lot more integrity and
soul to the music. By digging deeper, he discovered artists like Ltj Bukem, Goldie,
Roni Size, who had all pushed unique sounds within the scene, further intriguing the thirst for melodic and atmospheric Drum and Bass. Progressing on to producing, his first release came in 2012 on Stepping Forward Records. Followed by releases on Fokuz Recordings, Good Looking, Liquid Tones, Prestige, Soul Deep and more. Using this as inspiration and with bits of advice here and there, he has slowly tried
to craft his own sound and spent time trying to improve as a producer. In the last couple of years, he has become one of a number of new producers at the forefront of Fokuz Recordings, alongside Satl, Macca and Loz Contreras, Silence Groove, Kasper and others. As a Dj he has performed at various nights and festivals across the U.K
and Europe including Fokuz label nights in Moscow, Prague and London, Fabric, Let it Roll, Soul in Motion, Liquicity, Innersoul and many more. 2017 sees more gigs throughout Europe, plus E.P’s and collaborations on Fokuz Recordings and Integral.
