Hailing from Waynesboro, Virginia, Andrew Hypes is a DJ, music producer, and drummer who’s been making music for over 15 years. Since a young child, his father Randy has played an integral part in the 80’s babies knowledge of music and continues to support his talents and taste for music.
Andrew would spend his adolescent years watching his father play drums and listening to all genres of music from Hip-Hop to Funk, Rock, Pop, and R&B/Soul. As far as favorite acts go, Hypes puts Tribe Called Quest, Public Enemy, George Clinton and Prince as his top musical influences.
Andrew has played shows in major cities like New York, Miami, Las Vegas to Los Angeles and has traveled to both London and France producing music for IBM.
