The British musician, DJ and record producer Andrew Weather passed away due to a pulmonary embolism. Andrew was 56 years old. Andrew got his start as a DJ at a night club called Shoom and working with Paul Oakenfold. During this time, you started a record label under the name Boy’s Own Recordings. His first studio work was with Oakenfold on a remix of Happy Monday’s Hallelujah. This began a streak of notable remixes including World In Motion from New Order, Only Love Can Break Your Heart from Saint Etienne and My Bloody Valentine’s Soon that ranked #1 on NME’s list of the 50 Best Remixes Ever. Weatherall went on to remix Bjork, Siouxsie, Manic Street Preachers and James, among others. Perhaps his most famous work was his production efforts for Primal Scream’s Screamadelica.
Rest in peace Andrew. Your work will be remembered.
