About Abe Andon
San Antonio, TX
The style and essence of Abe Andon comes from a long journey that started in the 80s. He began experimenting with different instruments at an early age, which include the guitar, piano, and bass. The 80s vibe was the learning grounds for Abe, who later evolved to a new rhythm that is now called Techno/Trance.
By the time Abe was 16, he had his first synthesizer and became addicted to the effects and sounds that he was able to create. He has been creating music for over seven years, and has always pushed his musical limits to the max.
In the winter of 2002, Abe entered and won the famous Bacardi Be the DJ Contest, an event that was viewed worldwide via the Internet. Thousands of people signed up for the contest and submitted their tracks. When Abe won the contest it really opened up a lot of doors to the possibilities to go even further with his music. The first prize was a full day at a recording studio in Washington DC with the professional music producer Holmes Ives.
At the Studio Abe learned a lot about recording and editing music, as well as learning the basics on building a personal studio. Thanks to the help of Holmes Ives, Abe was able to return home and create a home studio to start recording his original tracks.
He loves spending time creating new tracks and editing his work. His First CD release came in 2005, titled “In Flight”; it had a smooth chill trance feel with an uplifting drum. Sales of his CD came from all over the world especially overseas.
After taking a few months of from the studio, Abe did some traveling and visited my dance floors along the way. The music and Djs he met along the way were his inspiration for his next CD release “Global Movement”. It was released in 2007, and it’s a collection of electro sounds with a trance feel to it, very uplifting and high energy.
The music is a form of canvas that tells a story, and that is what Abe Andon does in the studio. He puts together tracks that have feelings and energy from events that have some how inspired him. Abe Andon will continue to make music for his friends and fans, because that is his love and passion.
