DJ, producer, club promoter, label manager and all round music industry mover and shaker, ANDY WETSON,
known to the clubbing world as Andy Almighty, is the curator, public face and brainchild of 7TH HEAVEN.
Andy Wetson, (aka DJ Andy Almighty), is a respected DJ on the London gay scene, holding one of the longest weekly residencies on the London gay scene as well as being invited to play at large gay circuit parties in the USA and in 2012 headlining with Kylie Minogue at Sydney Mardi Gras. He launched the now institutional Sunday session, S.L.A.G.S/Chill-Out at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern (RVT), 20 years ago. He is involved with, and occasionally DJs at, the RVT’s Sunday Social weekly Tea Dance. He has also DJ’d at legendary gay nights such as Love Muscle at the Fridge, XXL’s Fusion at The Arches, DNA at Crash/Fire, Heaven, G-A-Y at The Astoria and has played at various club nights at Area, Club Colosseum, Union, Factory and in 2014 at Pulse playing the main floor at London gay superclub XXL. His successful retro brand Anthem – Old Skool Reunion runs quarterly (with additional party nights for Christmas and bank holidays), again at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern.
In addition, Andy has worked for many years as label manager for London-based DJ promo company CD Pool, as well as enjoying considerable success with his Club Junkies alias, remixing artists such as Tinchy Stryder, Nicole Scherzinger, Maroon 5, Alcazar, Vanquish, Jason Derulo, Kylie Minogue, JLS, StoneBridge ft. Therese, Dionne Bromfield, Melanie C, Jamelia, McFly, Ida Corr, A1, Gwen Stefani, De’Lacy, Ruff Driverz and in 2017, Steps.
Andy has previously worked as a graphic designer (he is qualified to degree level in typographic design), publishing for the gay press, part time at a record store owned and run by Almighty Records and then for 8 years he headed up the remix team Almighty, effectively managing the remix team, doing everything from sourcing the work, briefing the studio lads to delivering the DATs, chasing the money and general networking/schmoozing! In addition he was head of sales, marketing and design for this small but once extremely popular dance label. He left Almighty in the summer of 2005 to join CD Pool, Europe’s largest DJ promo service. He compiles 7 monthly titles in his position as Label Manager. It’s a role he describes as his dream job.
