Andy Vaz hails from Düsseldorf, Germany, the breeding ground of Kraftwerk. Since 1997, Andy manages and curates Background Recordings, internationally acclaimed as being one of the most instrumental labels to concentrate on what people refer to as: minimal techno.
Long before Minimal Techno turned into a genre, and subgenre after subgenre were invented, Andy has already been concentrating on providing a cultural conduit for true minimal electronic music. Some of the most influential international musicians of the minimal electronic music movement had their works presented on his Background Imprint. Artists such as: Akufen, Sutekh, Jan Jelinek, Todd Sines, Terrence Dixon, Jeff Milligan, Submania, Rhythm Maker, Kit Clayton, Ectomorph, Deadbeat, Baby Ford, Stewart Walker, Donnacha Costello, Geoff White, Smyglyssna, Portable, Frivolous and many others have graced the Background stage. The Label has been a major force in the presentation of minimal techno, introducing and educating the world to the geographic variable influences that exist within the genre.
在Minimal Techno变成一个音乐类型之前，甚至此类音乐风格更细化分类之前，安迪已经专注于为真正的极简电子音乐提供文化渠道。许多极简电子音乐运动中最有影响力的艺术家的作品都有受他的影响痕迹。比如：Akufen，Sutekh，Jan Jelinek，Todd Sines，Terrence Dixon，Jeff Milligan，Submania，Rhythm Maker，Kit Clayton，Ectomorph，Deadbeat，Baby Ford，Stewart Walker，Donnacha Costello，Geoff White，Smyglyssna，Portable，Frivolous以及许多其他。
As the years have passed, house music and techno have fused, segregated, split and recombined in countless ways. Both techno and house have drawn influences from one another to create hybrids that have changed the face of music as we know it. Andy could not ignore his undeniable appreciation for house music and therefore, decided to start a second label in order to help facilitate the growing relationship between global deep house and minimal techno: “A touch of Class “ was born.
House和Techno都相互影响，创造出已经改变了我们所知道的音乐表现的混合动力。Andy不能无视他对House音乐的不可否认的欣赏，因此决定开始第二个标签，以帮助促进全球Deep House与Minimal Techno之间日益增长的关系：“一触即发”。
In 2000, Andy Vaz has released his own material. At first he started his Sound Variation [---] series. A set of 10 conceptual releases, where all works were defined by the criteria of re-use, recycling of same instrumentations, within the context of boundless compositional approaches. Free Jazz was the teacher.
起初他开始了他的Sound Variation [---]系列。一组10个概念性版本，其中所有作品都是在无限制的组合方法的背景下，通过重复使用的标准，相同的仪器的回收来定义的。
Next to the series Andy Vaz also started putting out minimal techno & deep house dance material. Music, that is focused on the Groove and is based on his rich experiences as an internationally rewarded Live Act. Apart from having played countless clubs, festivals and venues, he’s done everything from the legendary “Liquid Room” in Tokyo to the Mutek Festival in Mexico. Andy has build up an excellent reputation as a crowd shaking and unique sounding live act. Known for extended two hour dance live-sets to more abstract listening performances Andy proves to be diverse and suitable in various musical contexts.
在这个系列之后，Andy Vaz也开始推出minimal techno & deep house 舞曲作品。
他的音乐，专注于Groove，并以他作为国际上颇受口碑的现场演出丰富的经验为基础。除了演奏了无数的俱乐部，音乐节和各种场地，从东京传奇的“Liquid Room”到墨西哥的Mutek Festival等等。Andy已经建立了一个很好的声誉作为人群摇摆和独特的声音现场表演。以连续两小时现场表演为特色，以更为抽象的聆听表演而闻名。Andy被证明是多样化的，适合各种音乐环境。
In march 2007 Vaz launched a new label called “YORE”, which will focus on the authentic old school Detroit & Chicago House Sound with original artists such as Rick Wade, Chez Damier, Terrence Dixon, Todd Sines, Alton Miller and others, presenting a new platform for these artists as well as for himself, to ensure spreading his musical visions further to new audiences. In 2010 Andy strated his own online Radio-show “House of Hope”. Later in 2011 he released his critically acclaimed second full lenght artist Album “Straight Vacationing” which turned out to be a major success worldwide.
2007年3月，Andy推出了一个名为“YORE”的新厂牌，将以“Rick Wade”，“Chez Damier”，“Terrence Dixon”，“Todd Sines”，“Alton Miller”等制作人为焦点，为这些艺术家和自己的制作的新平台，确保将他的音乐视野传播给新的观众。 2010年，安迪展开了自己的在线广播节目“House of Hope”。 2011年晚些时候，他发行了备受赞誉的第二个完整的艺术家专辑“Straight Vacation”，这在全球取得了巨大的成功。直到现在，Andy活跃在全球的俱乐部和音乐节的场景中。
