DJ Dolphin Boy @ The Bonnie Beastie, Forres
It is club music with a Celtic twist, but done with a rare elegance and style, an infectious combination. Andy Letcher on ‘Vertical Variations’
Andy Levy, aka Dolphin Boy, has been a producer and DJ for more than 20 years, melding his clubbing chops with a love of the traditionally crafted tune whilst creating some well loved classics and remixes along the way.
Spaciously layered blend of slinky grooves, quirkily sourced samples and custom-recorded vocals have won glowing reviews in the clubland press. Uniting elements of folk and dance through collaborations with acts like Shooglenifty, Martyn Bennett, and jazz saxophonist Phil Bancroft.
