Andy Lysandrou & Karl "Tuff Enuff' Brown Proudly Join The Beat London

The Beat London has signed up Andy Lysandrou from Ice Cream Records to present a brand new show The Essential Beat 1. The show will launch on Wednesday 12th October from 7pm - 9pm and will feature an exclusive 1 hour mix from Karl Brown of TuffJam.

Andy Lysandrou has been in the music industry for over 20 years and is well known for breaking some of the first and most played garage tracks in the UK.  He was behind one of the biggest chart battles of the millennium with his record "Out Of Our Mind" featuring Victoria Beckham and Dane Bowers by True Steppers. In subsequent years he worked closely with Kardinal Beats production and remixes for artists including Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Ciara and the late Amy Winehouse.


Karl "Tuff Enuff' Brown started on the music scene playing Reggae, Rare Groove, Hip Hop, Techno & House. He then was invited into the group Double Trouble which produced the track "Street Tuff" which became a chart topping hit as Double Trouble & the Rebel Mc back in the 80's which went on to become a hit at No.3 in the National charts and around the world acclaim. He then moved on to form the production team Tuff Jam with his former Dj Partner Matt "Jam" Lamont with such hits as Rosie Gaines - Tina Moore - Lighthouse Family - En'vogue - Kristine Blond & Usher, just to name a few. Now no longer Djing in the club scene due to his new spiritual role as a Minister, he now pursues his own Music Productions school (Groove Skool) helping budding producers to learn the Art of Music Production Creation & DJ Skills.


Andy has invited Karl "Tuff Enuff' Brown for the first of many special shows and will bring a variety of new and upfront dance essentials to this new weekly show. As well as breaking new music Andy will be including interviews and live exclusive mixes from Mr Brown & future surprise guests. 

Ivor Etienne, CEO of The Beat London says of the new show, "I'm delighted to have Ice cream records on board to present ‘The Essential Beat 1 Show’ with Andy and Karl, the synergies are perfect for our audience and I'm looking forward to the guys bringing London exclusive beats and remixes on the Beat London 103.6FM.”
