Andrey Pushkarev continues to move floors with a combination of profound musical knowledge, unique professionalism, and a meticulously gathered vinyl collection. His exquisite taste, sharp technique at the decks, and uncompromising nature have won him..
The subtle charm of his mixes encourages a reflective, ruminative headspace; a sound which focuses on creating moods, all the while emphasizing the human aspect of music. His placid and uncompromising attitude at the decks masks an unquestioning exploration of the power of spatiality in which every track is given breathing room, and accordingly, takes on a sense of the organic.
It's a work of architectural, structural, and musical genius, ranging from deep and sensitive melodic techno, to soul-beating house grooves, creating a synesthetic aura that is almost as powerful as his record selection. A journey towards the endless pursuit of artistic truth.
Holding a monthly residency at Flash, and as a frequent guest at U Street Music Hall, Goyette has established himself as a key tastemaker in the underground dance music scene in Washington D.C. His signature sound has also brought him to the legendary Queen! party at Smart Bar in Chicago, The Electric Pickle in Miami, Le Bain and Black Flamingo in NYC, Topless in Istanbul, First Avenue in Minneapolis, and frequent radio features. Through his decade of DJing Goyette has opened for some of the biggest names in dance music including Maceo Plex, Green Velvet, Derrick May, George Fitzgerald, Ryan Elliot, Tim Sweeney, Solomun, Hot Since 82, and many others.
