Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Matt 28:19-20 (KJV)

 


 

Andy Hunter

Andy Hunter° fits naturally into the surroundings of a local coffee house, casually dressed in a bright yellow Diesel ski jacket. He sips his hot beverage, makes easy, thoughtful conversation and remains focused, like an old friend, pausing only to greet his wife, Helen, in a warm British cadence, their son, Ethan, quietly in tow.

At first glance, there is something delightfully incongruous about this picture. No one looking on would guess this same man is a world-class DJ cranking out pounding bolts of electricity in many of the hippest clubs around the world. But to Andy, this is just the multi-textured harmony that's life.

Life releases as the newest project from internationally acclaimed UK artist, DJ Andy Hunter°. The six-song EP, produced and arranged by Hunter and Tedd T. (Stacie Orrico, Delirious?, Rebecca St. James), offers sonic vignettes of Christ bringing new life to barren wasteland. It's a powerful metaphor urging the church to engage in intercessory prayer, extending hope where there is despair.

The record maintains Hunter's signature ambient sound, supported this time by a liberal use of guitars and live stringed instruments. Through innovative rhythms and beats, Life illustrates a worshipful expression of total surrender and freedom in Christ unlike any record you'll hear this year. Hunter also adds his vocals to the album, as well as guest vocalists Kate Westall and Neil Wilson.

The collection satisfies great anticipation among music fans brought on by the breakout success of Hunter's 2002 project Exodus. That highly acclaimed dance record catapulted Hunter into the upper echelons of mainstream dance music. "Amazing" became a crossover hit while tracks such as "Go" and "Wonders of You" garnered major placements in film and TV, including The Matrix: Reloaded (trailer), The Italian Job, ABC's hit "Alias," plus video games, including "The Matrix" and "Black Hawk Down."

Further, with media like Rolling Stone giving Exodus props and endorsements by Microsoft for national licensing and promotion opportunities, Hunter found himself touring the U.S., Japan and Europe with top names in the dance music business. For an artist like Hunter—who'd worked some eight years in relative obscurity—the experience was like seeing your favorite Southern California Christian rock band suddenly opening for U2.

Hunter, however, refused bragging rights. In fact, the notoriety makes him somewhat uncomfortable. His music isn't about achieving fame, he says. It's about expressing who he's meant to be in Christ.

"It's not about a style of music, it's about a lifestyle," he says. "To me it's about a love relationship with Jesus," an expression of living daily with Christ through prayer, study and worship. It's Hunter's desire to bring others into their own intimate experience with God.
