From Balearic sounds, hip-hop, disco and rare groove to deep, melodic tech house, 2011 saw an increase in demand for his main room sets, warming up for Defected, Cadenza, All Gone Pete Tong and Subliminal. Andy’s constantly evolving technical skills led to a role as host of the Pioneer Lab on the rooftop terrace, demonstrating the latest equipment to visiting international artists.
Additional residencies include a fourth season with the legendary We Love… Sundays at Space, season number five with iconic Ibiza sunset institution Café Mambo, plus a weekly debut at high-end beach club El Chiringuito and on-island resident duties for luxury and VIP event specialists The Shop.
An unrelenting passion for new music also scored Baxter the enviable role of A&R scout for seminal label Defected, after head honcho Simon Dunmore spotted his ear for new talent in 2010. His extensive musical knowledge and constantly evolving technical skills have seen him tour the globe numerous times over and after rediscovering his passion for playing records, Baxter’s own monthly event at Pacha, The Vinyl Fix was born.
Throughout winter 2012, Andy embarked on multiple new studio productions and he continues to present his own weekly program on Ibiza Sonica. The Fix airs at 10pm on Wednesdays, featuring upfront music ranging from deep house and broken beats to disco and peak time madness, with over 7000 listeners worldwide.
