Few veterans within electronic music boast the respect and numerous accolades, as DJ and producer Andy Galea. Considered by many to be a master of the craft across various forms of house music, his position as head of A&R for Strictly Rhythm / Ikonik is indicative ear for a killer tune.

With over twenty years of experience producing, remixing and performing all over the world, Galea has established his place as a true legend on the scene. His long list of monikers and aliases is a testament to his widespread appeal, delivering killer tunes across a wide spectrum.

Over the last two decades, industry recognition and praise of his talent has been overwhelming; from receiving a "Best Band" award at the Muzik Magazine Awards to being amongst nominees for "Best Newcomer Act" at the prestigious MOBO awards.

Galea's versatility and skill as a producer is highly sought after from all corners of the music industry with remixes completed for artists such as Rihanna, Britney Spears and Technotronic and many others.

Remixes aside, Galea's most renowned work is his '95 chart-topping smash hit "Turn Me Out" under the Sol Brothers guise; a track so epic that it commanded a re-release, which went on to become THE summer anthem for Strictly Rhythm in 2011.

2012 is shaping up to be a promising year for Galea, with many exciting projects, collaborations and new releases on the way. Most notable is his work as one third of The Nightstylers, alongside Marc JB and Patrick Ruane. Their dancefloor-destroying remixes of Planet Funk's classic "Chase the Sun", heralds a new chapter in Galea's illustrious career.
