Noted for providing music on soundtracks including the Matrix Reloaded and many computer games, a lot of people do not realise they've already been exposed to this highly talented DJ/producer. The second full album follow up to 'Exodus' displays a wonderful array of modern sounds, blending with Andy's musical grounding of the '80s. The Beloved-influenced electronic pop track "Stars" and "Shine" with its breathy vocals by DBA's Shaz Sparks is slightly reminiscent of Laurie Anderson's "O Superman". From the off set this album is striking with the synth techno blasting rhythm "Sound Pollution". The techno sounds reappear on tracks "System Error", "Out Of Control" and "You". An eclectic mix of trade mark ambient sounds and hard edged dance beats keep the listener fixated to experience the next track. The beauty of the understated "Fade" and "Sapphire" are like the 'Lion lying with the Lamb'. Produced with Robbie Bronnimann and featuring in the surprise guest vocalist one time hitmaker Midge Ure, this is one album that will have the repeat button pressed many times. A completely modern dance album that has the quality to become a major mainstream success.

World-class DJ Andy Hunter’s 'Colour' is the highly anticipated follow-up to 2002’s Exodus.
Combining a passion for God with a strong creative vision, Andy Hunter brings his electronic/ trance music to film and television (The Italian Job, Alias, The Matrix: Reloaded) along with high profile ads and endorsements (Microsoft).
'Colour' continues where 'Life', Hunter’s six-song 2005 EP left off. “I’m having a ball while I’m doing this,” Andy acknowledges, his sense of humour shining through. “It’s not like I’m Mr Serious Spiritual Guy. But it does mean that my faith complements my music, and in turn my music complements my faith.”
