Andy Caldwell Reclaims Deep House Roots With New Single “Hold The Line” Feat. Lisa Shaw, Out Today
"'Hold The Line,’ featuring songstress Lisa Shaw’s buttery vocals, is Caldwell’s deep house homecoming. The song’s polished melody and full-tuned bassline are strung together for a grooving edit; equal parts danceable and hypnotic.” – Vibe.com
Grammy-Nominated DJ/Producer Andy Caldwell reclaims his Deep House roots with new single, “Hold The Line” featuring Lisa Shaw. The single is out today, and premiered yesterday on Vibe.com (here: http://bit.ly/1cjUj3W).
Two remixes will follow the single release on March 4. WhiteNoize’s minimal approach goes deeper than the original, but with a punchier bassline. The second remix, a team effort between Hazzarro and Jerome Robbins, goes the other way with bigger productions – keys, percussive elements and a straight ahead, fully-charged 4-4 beat matched to a classic House groove that’s sure to get bodies on the dance-floor.
Caldwell, who has been churning out quality tracks for more than a decade, was nominated for a Grammy-Award® this year in the category of “Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical” for his remix of fellow Nettwerk label artist Delerium’s “Days Turn Into Nights,” a track from the influential Canadian outfit’s last studio album, Music Box Opera. Other recent collaborations include Caldwell lending his talents to remixes and original productions with Morgan Page, Bass Kleph and Zoo Brazil as well as remixes for Paul Oakenfold, Major Lazer, Shiny Toy Guns, Beyonce and The Veronicas. He's also in the midst of concocting kinetic cuts for his forthcoming album, due out later in 2014.
The past year saw Caldwell kick off a 24-date residency at Las Vegas mega club, Light Nightclub, several club dates in Asia and North America, and a very special sunrise set at the legendary Robot Heart at Burning Man. He also produces two monthly podcast series: "Play With Andy Caldwell" and "Heritage."
A California native, Caldwell 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.
