Andy Caldwell x Chic Hooligan team up with Gina Rene to create a stellar cover tune

The new musical La La Land is something that doesn’t come along all that often, a traditional Hollywood musical that appeals to people who don’t like musicals. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone have made musicals cool again, at least in the short term.

Filmmaker Damien Chazelle and composer Justin Hurwitz have swept the Golden Globes and look to have a similar showing at the Oscars on February 26th. If you haven’t seen it, make your way to the big screen asap as that’s where it should be seen. Chances are you will be humming “City of Stars” for about two weeks straight.

Andy Caldwell and Chic Hooligan have teamed up with Gina Rene on a jazzy, soulful house cover of “City of Stars” that takes this tune to the dance floor. Magnetic has the exclusive premiere so prepare to put this one on repeat.


Andy Caldwell, DJ/Producer

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 in 2016 as one of the scene’s most forward thinking producers.

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 already 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.

His original productions can be found on Toolroom, Yoshitoshi, OM Records, Murk, Ultra and many more alongside some of Dance music’s best including Todd Terry, Kaskade, Morgan Page, Mr. V, Lisa Shaw and Anduze.

Andy Caldwell’s ‘Naked’ days may be behind him, but we will certainly be seeing plenty of him in 2017! With a back catalogue of tracks this inspired, it’s easy to see why a talent this bright will always sparkle under the spotlight.

La La Land is the musical for people that don’t like musicals, filled with bittersweet romance, nostalgic L.A. moments and incredible music. “City of Stars” one of the film’s shining moments, is a song that stays with you long after you leave the theater.
