More about Andy Caldwell:
A name that has been synonymous with the underground sound of the halcyon days of deep house, Andy Caldwell continues to push the boundaries at the forefront of today's dance music scene. Internationally renowned for purveying sonically sublime sound waves over the past two decades, Andy continues to be recognized as one of the scene’s most forward-thinking producers.
Caldwell became a key figure on the west coast music scene, forming the group Soulstice with collaborator Gabriel Rene. The innovative downtempo group released two records on prominent Bay Area label Om Records, including their critically acclaimed 2001 debut, Illusion, which yielded a number of tracks that were licensed to several major television shows.
Following Soulstice's success, Caldwell struck out on his own, becoming involved with another San Francisco label, Naked Music, for which he produced a bevy of successful house singles like "All I Need" and "I Can't Wait." In 2006 he released his first LP, Universal Truth, for Om Records.
As his own musical profile increased, he became a much sought-after writer and remixer for other artists as well. During this time, Caldwell began to renew his focus on producing and releasing music for Uno Recordings, the electronic music label he founded in 2004.
In addition to writing and releasing his own music, Andy has kept himself busy remixing such internationally renowned artists as Major Lazer, Lenny Kravitz, and Beyoncé. With several Grammy nominations to his name, Andy shows no sign of resting on his laurels after the 2014 nomination for his remix of Canadian group Delerium. This sits nicely alongside his ‘Best Remixed Recording’ by Wolfgang Gartner in 2011 for his original track ‘Funk Nasty’ and his work with Kaskade and Dirty South on ‘Sorry,’ which snagged his first nomination for ‘Best Remixed Recording’ in 2008.
