For the first time in nearly 25 years, one of electronic music’s most captivating figures Andrew Weatherall on Saturday December 2nd, touches down in Auckland to play a very special set at Galatos

Andrew Weatherall is the definition of legendary. He first emerged as a resident DJ at pioneering London acid-house club Shoom and co-author of fanzine Boy’s Own. After that, he quickly went on to produce Primal Scream’s classic album Screamadelica, create an insane number of records under a ridiculous number of aliases, remix everyone from New Order to the Happy Mondays, launch a number of record labels (current count: three), and command dancefloors worldwide with mesmerising all-night DJ sets.

Throughout his life, Weatherall has carved a curious, serpentine path through the fringes of electronic music. This has included his work with a variety of collaborators as Two Lone Swordsmen, Woodleigh Research Facility, and Sabres of Paradise– projects that seemed to self-destruct when they were on the verge of getting too big. 

More recently, his path has seen him verge toward sublimely narcotic dance music – primarily DJed alongside Sean Johnston (The Hardway Bros) as A Love From Outer Space, and showcased on his recent album Qualia. Weatherall puts it best himself – “The basic need for transcendence is part of the human condition, and has been for thousands of years. If I can help people get there - then all the better.”
