Grammy-nominated Andy Moor has been a fixture in the Top 100 poll for a few years now. A child musical prodigy, he played his first record at 13 and by the age of 21, he was playing a slew of international gigs. Now one of the most respected trance people from the UK, he's established his label, AVA Recordings, and accomplished a number of notable remixes and mix comps. "I've had an amazing time on tour this year," Andy tells us down the phone from Australia. "The crowds have been bigger and more vibrant than ever." For Andy, one key development has been the time and money spent on production at some of the bigger international gigs. "A lot of venues are taking the audio/visual experience more seriously now, which for me has made it more complete," he says. "The production of some shows has been mind-blowing and the industry is really taking it to the next level." Andy's mammoth year of touring has meant that he hasn't been able to spend as much time in the studio as he'd have liked, but this is something he intends to remedy in 2011. "I haven't been able to produce as much as I would have liked this year," he says, "but that will be tackled next year with the emphasis more on production."
