Uproot Andy is a Brooklyn based DJ/Producer and co-founder of Que Bajo, the NYC based party that helped pioneer the so called Global Bass movement with its all embracing approach to global electronic music. Uproot Andy’s unique sound of bass heavy and melodic dance music first began appearing outside the club on mixtapes such as Guacharaca Migration and Worldwide Ting as well as on early releases by the Bersa Discos and ZZK record labels. Since then he has toured extensively in Europe and across the Americas appearing in diverse settings from Colombia’s Carnaval de Barranquilla to New York’s Central Park Summerstage to the Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards in London. Andy and Que Bajo co-founder Geko Jones also represented their global bass sound at the Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash in NYC and have recently launched Que Bajo Records to release a steady stream of remixes and club edits that give the now famous party its signature sound.
