Andy Bassland (real name Andris Lazdāns, also known as Trebland) is a DJ and producer. Music has been an important part of his life since early childhood. In 2000 Andy began to develop an interest in being a DJ. He took his first steps performing in culture houses, schools and private events in Latgale and Ogre. Some years later Andy Bassland (known as DJ land at the time) had made a collection of CDs with house, trance and progressive, and started playing in Preili as well as other places in Latvia. During that period electronic dance music was not very popular in Latgale, however, Dj Land kept popularizing it and always kept to his personal playing style.
After 2004 electronic music started becoming more popular, thus DJ Land was able to organize more electronic music events. Already two years later he was one of the leaders of the DJ associations – DN Promo and Tab – Lifter™. In 2007 DJ Land started actively organizing electronic music events, producing records and making remixes of popular songs in Latvia, thus becoming more popular and recognized in the Latvian DJ community. In 2008 two of his remixes were included in the ‘Latvian Club Night’ CD. One of them was ranked as one of the best remixes in the CD. The other one was at the first place in the Capital Fm top 20. In addition, many of Andy’s remixes can be heard all over Latvia.
In the first half of 2009 Andy did several remixes which are currently waiting to be released. In the second half of 2009 he created a project – Trebland. Its aim is to release remixes in foreign countries. Currently Andy works under the Dj association Tab – Lifter™, the association organizes electronic music events in Latvia. Andy cooperates with other DJs and producers thus gaining more experience in the field.
