    i was being a bit tounge in cheek with that comment lol. he's a very comfortably rich man though. as faceless monkey said, gettin paid a couple grand to do what u what u enjoy for an hour is nicessschhhh.

    how much is it to book him then????
     
  6. I can't divulge figures what Andy gets paid because it's not my place to say - However, he does alright and it's fair to say has substantial tax bill each year. He's a business man and invests money into property outside the scene.
    From his point of view - he never knew when he started how long the whole DJing/Scene thing would go on for so investing money in bricks and mortar is a safe investment for the future.
    DJ's rates vary from the size of the event, no of people, location and who the promoters are etc. Andy's got a good agent 'Tom at CODA' who deals with all Andys bookings.
    Now Andy and Tanya are expecting their first baby sometime this year so i expect he'll be taking some time out around then . Good job he does earn well as kids aren't cheap! LOL

    i know hype doesn't strictly have a price.... you have to bid for his time weeks in advance on some kind of online auction site he has.... or so i'll i've been told.

    I reckon Goldie gets a fair whack for his sets. Thats purely cos hes been in James Bond though......Seriously its great that these guys are able to make a living out of it,but to make some serious wedge you would have to run a lable and control the process of getting the tunes published.None of the guys you have mentioned are purely Djs, they all control a lable or are producers and such

    Bugger! Spelt "label" wrong, tut-tut.What will my english teacher think of me.
    Re:imagine living in a house owned by Andy C...
    Do you think he would pop round and spin at your parties, or would he be a po-faced bugger and turf you out for cranking up your sound system every weekend.Also I wonder what kind of property he specialises in?

    it would be impossible to retire compfortably on just producing dnb and playin out everyweek.
    Your'd need to own a label and a succseesful 1 at that
