Andrew Weatherall (born 6 April 1963, Windsor, England) is a DJ, producer, and remixer.

Starting off with his work alongside DJ Paul Oakenfold on the "Hallelujah" remix for the Happy Mondays, Weatherall entered the fray of the indie rock and acid house sounds of Madchester. Other remixes followed, including "World in Motion" by New Order and "Loaded", a hit remix of Primal Scream's earlier track "I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have". He joined fellow scenesters Terry Farley and Pete Heller to form Boy's Own, initially a magazine commenting on football, fashion, records, etc. They also did parties, and had a record label under the name of Boys Own Recordings (which went on to be called Junior Boy's Own in 1992 upon Weatherall's departure). Along with engineer Hugo Nicholson and singer Anna Haigh, they released two singles as Bocca Juniors on Boys Own Records, "Raise (53 Steps to Heaven)" and the lesser known "Substance".

He formed the dub trio The Sabres of Paradise in 1993, and promoted the Bloodsugar and Sabresonic warehouse raves. In early 1996, after shutting down Sabresonic, Weatherall and Keith Tenniswood became Two Lone Swordsmen signing to Warp Records label and setting up Rotters Golf Club for their own dancefloor-orientated work.

Weatherall also has cited humor as an important component in his musical ideology.

He has produced such artists as Beth Orton, Primal Scream and One Dove, and has remixed the work of Björk, Siouxsie, The Orb, New Order, My Bloody Valentine, Bananarama, Saint Etienne, James and many others.

In late 2006, he released his debut solo single "The Bullet Catcher's Apprentice" on Rotters Golf Club.

Also, in late 2007 and early 2008, a song entitled "Feathers" by Andrew was used in an advert for a Volkswagen Tiguan
