Being a DJ in Dubai has its perks, like DJing for Leonardo Di Caprio, Orlando Bloom, Roberto Cavali, 50 Cent and dozens more at super swanky parties across the emirate. But aside from being in the right place at the right time throughout a lot of his career, DJA ndy’s trademark cool and commercial sound belongs on the dance floor with the clubber.
He first came to prominence in the city a decade ago when he competed in the prestigious Palme Middle East DJ Championship.
He finished a highly respectable 5thin 2004 when he was the youngest entrant, and even better the folowing year to clinch 2nd, helping to raise his profile in the emerging Middle East city.
Residencies came quickly for the talented DJ. First up was Boudoir, one of the longest-running clubs in the Middle East, before he was talent spoted by Etoiles at Emirates Palacein Abu Dhabi were he spent a year in the award-winning venue further honing his skills at one of the finest hotels in the world.
From there, he landed one of the best gigs in the city at Zinc, playing to a packed out crowd of clubbers 7 nights a week. One if the most consistent clubs in the region, it straddles the line between cool and commercial perfectly ,making it a perfect home for Andy Swift. Alongside that, he’s also the host and DJ of the best ladies night in town at the Dubai Marina Yacht club (as voted for by Time Out / What’s On) where he gets to play a more expansive sound. Other than that he also holds residencies in some of Dubai’s most soughtout venues which include MOVIDA, Nasimi Beach, MAHIKI, Q43, Atelier M, and Stereo Arcade Dubai To name a few! Also responsible for the new We Brunch concept at the all-new Intercontinental Dubai Marina to a packed housee very Friday!
Musically he's an incredibly versatile DJ, happy dropping commercial house and soulful RnB, or switching it up and dropping disco, funk and 80s clasics. Don’t just take his word for it though, ask Leonardo DiCaprio next time you see him!
