Andrew Weatherall, 1963-2020

Adam Sweeting, The Guardian, 18 February 2020

THE LIST OF ANDREW WEATHERALL'S achievements as DJ, musician, songwriter, producer and remixer could fill a hefty volume. His career took him from working as an acid house DJ in the late 1980s to being a celebrated remixer of tracks by Happy Mondays, New Order and Primal Scream. His production work on Primal Scream's album Screamadelica (1991), creating a revolutionary mix of indie, hard rock, house and rave, helped the record to win the inaugural Mercury music prize the following year, and remains Weatherall's most memorable calling card to a mainstream audience.
