ABOUT ANDY CALDWELL:
Whether he’s writing songs, remixing, producing, or performing, Andy Caldwell has one goal—to make you move.
With a consistency that’s hard to match, the accomplished California
electronic music impresario time and time again concocts dance floor
anthems that emanate undeniable, invigorating energy. His intoxicating
DJ sets have won over fans everywhere from Australia and Berlin to San
Francisco and Las Vegas. He’s built a reliable brand with Uno Recordings
and his much lauded mix CDs. If one thing is for certain, Caldwell is
known for setting off clubs on stage as a DJ as well as an artist.
Caldwell continues to blaze new trails with a distinct versatility and
virtuosity . His most recent work brandishes a House music spark, while
emphasizing his classical training and immersion in club culture.
Legends of the genre, such as Tiësto, regularly spin Caldwell's tracks
and remixes in their live sets and podcasts. And his forthcoming music
will further solidify his position as an innovator within the scene.
Recent collaborations include Caldwell lending his talents to remixes
and original productions with Morgan Page and EC Twins, remixes for
Beyonce, J-Lo, and Seal, and he's also concocted kinetic cuts such as
the forthcoming track, 'Where Did You Go?" with Jonathan Mendehlson.
The syncopated synths of buzz-worthy single "Superfunkidiculous"
officially announced Caldwell’s arrival in 1994. Then, embracing the
chilled-out, high-class vibe of San Francisco electro, Caldwell went
from that introductory track to forming the down-tempo chill trendsetter
band Soulstice. Soulstice made major waves across the scene in the US
and beyond. However, one project wasn’t enough for the producer.
His 2005 mix CD Late Night With Andy Caldwell became a fan favorite,
while his full-length studio debut, 2006’s Universal Truth, yielded gems
such as “Warrior”, “Don’t You Love Me”, and “I Can’t Wait”. In between
prolifically pumping out his own music, Caldwell became a much sought
after writer and remixer. Simultaneously, he founded and oversaw Uno
Recordings, continually producing unique electronic music since 2005
with the label.
Along the way, his productions garnered two
Grammy nominations. His work with Kaskade on the single “Sorry” snagged a
nomination for Best Remixed Recording in 2008, as did his original
track “Funk Nasty” featuring Gramma Funk whose Wolfgang Gartner Remix
received a Best Remixed Recording nod in 2011.
Caldwell is fusing the undulating energy of his live performances with
his studio savvy to crank out propulsive House cuts that’ll ignite
dancing everywhere from Ibiza to Miami. About his artistic goals,
Caldwell says, "I'm always trying to create a timeless record. I want to
make something that will sound good today and twenty years from now. I
pay attention to trends, but I emphasize big hooks and a solid
foundation. In the studio, I’m emulating my live sets. I want to take
people on a journey with my songs and shows. By the time you get to the
end, you’ve been on a ride.”
That ride is fueled by constant
experimentation and a consciousness of the national and global scenes.
With a distinctive House music bounce and classy Electro fire, the
artist’s new songs stand destined to become dance classics. “I’m
focusing on pure groove and melody,” reveals Caldwell. “With my new
music, I’m honing in on what makes people want to dance.”
remains connected to his home state on a deep level. Growing up in Santa
Cruz, establishing his professional persona in San Francisco, and now
residing in Los Angeles, he’s embedded himself in every facet of the
California lifestyle. Right now, L.A.’s fast-paced hot nightlife
continues to inspire his current creations.
percent a product of California,” he declares. “I'm a Cali kid, and it’s
a big part of my music. Once I started traveling a lot and seeing the
world, sharing the music with an international audience became a more
important goal. My travel and friends all over the world influenced my
music a great deal."
Andy's travels have seen him entrance
crowds everywhere from Australia to the Berlin Love Parade to Electric
Daisy Carnival. He describes the live experience best. "My show is
pretty intimate. I play a lot of my own music and current tunes that I'm
feeling as well as some classics. It’s a diverse set. I try to pull
from those experiences that I’ve had as a fan of dance music and
incorporate those into the show.”
Ultimately, versatility and adaptability propel Caldwell at light speed alongside the genre’s luminaries.
“You have to evolve,” he concludes. “Change is the only real constant
in life so you have to embrace that and ride the wave. You can't fight
it. As an artist, I want to be inspired every day. The only way to do
that is to listen to new material. To me, it's about exploring. I want
fans to hit ‘repeat.’ That's the goal. When I work on a song, I'm in
love with it; I will play it over and over again. I would like people to
share that experience."
They’ll undoubtedly be dancing endlessly along to Andy Caldwell’s music for a long time to come.
