BioBay Area native Andy Caldwell had a passion for the art of music long before the advent of electronica, and a decade before embarking on a career in deejaying, producing and songwriting. But true musical expression for Andy hit all new levels in the wake of San Francisco's underground rave explosion, when the one-time concert trumpeter and piano player subordinated his horn and foot-pedals in favor of two turntables and a bag of vinyl.
Caldwell's first track "Superfunkidiculous" was released in 1994 and quickly became a top hit throughout the club scene, leading to a collaboration project with childhood friend Gabriel René. Forming the highly acclaimed San Francisco band "Soulstice", Caldwell and René produced and wrote music for the release of the band's album "Illusion" and the renowned remix album, "Mixed Illusions." During that time, Caldwell also created a steady stream of his own celebrated releases for OM Records including three stand-alone, single releases, as well as releases featured on Mark Farina's widely popular Mushroom Jazz series. His singles were also included on six consecutive Om Lounge compilations and two full-length mix CDs entitled Sounds of Om v. 2. Caldwell's now seminal Om Records' release, "I Can't Wait" has appeared on numerous compilations and has become a house music standard.
Other top singles for Caldwell include his popular Naked Music releases "All I Need", "Lectropic" and "Give A Little" as well as remixes for Jennifer Lopez (J-Lo), Miguel Migs, Owusu and Greene and Arvid. He's also recorded and released "Pushin" and "Don't Hold Back" for Inspirit Music's InSoul Sessions v. 1 and InHouse Perspectives 02, albums that he also mixed. He has also collaborated with DJ/producer Behrouz on their single "Be Free" and several remixes for the Yoshitoshi label, including the Grammy nominated track "Safe From Harm" by Narcotic Thrust, "Never Felt this Way" by Hani featured on Deep Dish's Toronto mix for Global Underground as well as a remix of UNO recordings first release "Too Late" by Mei-Lwun.
Further expanding his reach, Caldwell's signature production style is also recognized in the film and television industries. He has composed music for films such as Forces of Nature and Skulls, as well as popular television series: Six Feet Under, Boston Public, and Chromium Blue.
At age 31, with an ever-expanding discography, Caldwell has only just begun to fulfill his passion for music, with frequent DJ tours, remix opportunities and production work. For the past 3 years, his DJ schedule has allowed him to share his love of music with fans around the world, playing records in every major city on every continent.
