Andy Tudor is a Senior Creative Director of 20+ years having worked on notable racing franchises PROJECT CARS, NEED FOR SPEED and TEST DRIVE. As well as cult TV/film phenomena FAST & FURIOUS, 24, and THE WALKING DEAD.
A native of the Isle Of Man, Tudor was raised in Manchester, England and with a talent for art & computing and love for gaming, he knew from an early age that he wanted a career where they may intertwine.
Having worked for worldwide advertising firm TBWA on prominent household brands, Tudor graduated from Bournemouth University with a Ba(Hons) 1st Degree in Computer Animation & Visualisation before joining in the games industry at Sony Worldwide Studios in 2000 where leading titles THE GETAWAY, PRIMAL, SINGSTAR, 24, and PLAYSTATION HOME were being created.
After five years where he grew from a Junior Artist into a Lead, and MEDIEVIL RESURRECTION earned a BAFTA, Tudor then switched both company and role, moving from Art to Design and becoming Lead Designer responsible for rebooting Electronic Arts' NEED FOR SPEED franchise with SHIFT.
That reboot went on to become the highest-rated and best-selling Need For Speed title in over 8 years, and spawned a sequel with SHIFT 2 UNLEASHED when he then became Creative Director at Slightly Mad Studios.
With the mobile adaptation of the hugely-popular THE WALKING DEAD comic, and the official free-to-play game of the RED BULL AIR RACE series also under his belt, Tudor was made an Xbox Ambassador, and is also an honorary member of both BAFTA and the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences.
Andy Tudor is a DJ for Monster Energy and the #1 Drum & Bass DJ on FitRadio. He has collaborated on a number of projects for Deadmau5, Mind Vortex, Ram Records, DC Breaks, and East Project. And has played numerous events around the world with more planned for 2022.
Growing up in the early 90's, Tudor was heavily influenced by the Manchester music scene where "Super DJs" like Paul Oakenfold, Brandon Block, Carl Cox were residents at iconic clubs like Sankey’s, Warehouse Project, and of course Hacienda. Learning to play turntables therefore became obligatory with an instant affinity for trance and progressive house.
Only later at University (playing at the now famous Old Fire Station and Gardening Club in Bournemouth) did the shift to Jungle and then Drum & Bass happen as the likes of Roni Size and LTJ Bukem became household names.
Through the advents of web streaming and sites like Mixcrate and FitRadio, the motorsports world, and some advocating and pure luck, Andy has gone on to play out at clubs and festivals around the world, including The Study and Avalon in Los Angeles, Goodwood Festival Of Speed and FuelFest, Lab11, SW4, XOYO, and Ruby Skye.
Currently Andy is a DJ for Monster Energy playing at their events throughout the year, whilst also being part of the Off Tracks collective.
