Andrew Weatherall

Andrew Weatherall carved out a well-respected career in British techno. As a producer moving from the sounds of Madchester to downbeat to experimental techno through the '90s, Weatherall could've easily ridden the big beat (Chemical Brothers) or high-profile DJ (Oakenfold) waves at the end of the decade, choosing instead to pursue -- and in many ways define -- a more cutting-edge, IDM approach. He participated in two big-name collaborations appeared on Warp Records, beginning early on in the label's now highly respected run, and remains one of the world's most dedicated and top DJs.
