Andrew C. aka “Ratchet” was destined to make music. He has a prolific background in multiple musical instruments… drums, keyboard, alto sax and trombone. His his family roots are firmly planted in funk music. His technical drive and appreciation for bass music were honed early on, while he built subwoofer boxes for friends’ cars. Ratchet later ran a custom stereo shop and got into bass culture at SPL drag races, where burping your sound system was celebrated.
In 2002, his technical and musical talents converged in the form of DJing the alternative side of bass music, like D&B and New-School Breaks. That experience left Ratchet hungry for more and he started producing IDM around 2005. Since then he has been writing thick, bass-driven midtempo that ranges from sexy to silly and all points between.
