About

Andy Caldwell

<p>Since finding his initial success as part of the San Francisco-area group Soulstice, electronic music producer and Grammy nominated artist Andy Caldwell has gone on to post an extensive résumé in the electronic music world. Breaking through in 1994 with his single "Superfunkidiculous,"

Caldwell became a key figure in the regional club 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 a 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.

Along the way, his productions garnered three Grammy nominations. His work with Kaskade and Dirty South 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 received yet a third Grammy nomination in 2014 for his remix of Canadian group Delerium.

In addition to writing and releasing his own music, Caldwell has kept busy remixing heavy- hitting artists such as Major Lazer, Lenny Kravitz, Foster The People and Beyoncé as well as racking up several world tours and a highly publicized residency at prominent Las Vegas mega-club Light.</p>

Testimonials

Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective, and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America. I’ve been attending WMC for nearly 20 years, and I’m very much looking forward to experiencing its evolution in 2019.

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.

“Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”


Kaskade

DJ/Producer

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.
