He spins hard, he spins dark, and he spins foooreeevvveeerr. Famous for his 24 hour marathon sets, Victor Calderone has massive followings in NY and Miami. His parties are famous for allowing people to completely forget the world around them. When you walk inside the club and Vic is spinning, nothing else matters. It’s just you, him and the music.

The best after parties in NY are without question headlined by Calderone. Whether you’re leaving Electric Zoo, just saw Armin or PvD at an early evening outdoor venue, or don’t know what to do late night on Thanksgiving, Halloween, Independence Day, whatever. VC’s parties are where it’s at. He’s going to explode all over Lima’s face, there’s no question about it. The only real question is can you handle it?
Victor Calderone is not the kind of artist to dwell in the past. As a musician and DJ, he is set apart from his contemporaries by his constant desire to push the boundaries of his genre, inspiring both his fans and collaborators alike with his music. Vic (to his friends) has had an amazing career of successful residencies, chart-topping productions and star-studded remixes. But his ever-growing popularity and forward-thinking sound prove that he’s just getting started.

A DJ with an underground vibe and cult following very early on, Victor shot to dance music stardom with massive hits like Give It Up, Beat Me Harder, and Resonate. His natural studio talent attracted some very big attention, leading to remix work with some of pop music’s most popular artists, including Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, Beyonce, and Madonna (with whom he has worked a stunning total of ten times). However, it was his collaboration with Sting on the single “Desert Rose,” in which Sting recorded new vocals to match Calderone’s re-worked version, that especially stands out. Sting’s very first dance remix spent an unbelievable 80 weeks on the Billboard dance music chart (nine at number one), and was very well received by the artist himself:

“Victor Calderone is highly energetic and his musical contribution helped introduce ‘Desert Rose’ to an entirely new audience. I look forward to working with him again.” – Sting

Anyone who has experienced a Victor Calderone party firsthand will tell you that it is Vic’s ability to create sexy, spiritual live gigs that truly sets him apart. A real “DJ’s DJ,” his sets are able to blend the old with the new, the crowd favorite with the obscure, and to span genres from banging tribal to techy minimal with grace and energy. It is no wonder, then, that his residencies read like a veritable timeline of club land itself. He has played at Manhattan institutions Limelight and Life, ruled Miami with a high profile residency at Liquid during the club’s heyday, and held down an impressive three year run at fabled venue The Roxy.

Never one to rest on his impressive laurels, Victor has continued to challenge himself with a rigorous global tour schedule and groundbreaking projects such as his massive, self-produced event “Caligula,” in 2001. This 5000 person party at Hammerstein Ballroom featured live vocal performances by Cindi Lauper, acrobats, and a 50 piece orchestra. He has released best selling mix albums like “E=VC2” (volumes 1 & 2) and “Resonate,” and even arranged the music for a number of Dolce & Gabana and Versace runway shows in Milan.

Most recently, Victor has taken the sum total of his musical history and inspiration, and channeled it into the experience that is “Evolve.” Whether on tour in Australia, Europe, South America, Israel, Japan, & Dubai, or at “Evolve” events in the states such as Crobar (NY and Miami), the “Evolve” brand has become synonymous with over-the-top debauchery, quality music, quality production and dazzling lighting. Especially influential to Victor has been his residency at Stereo Montreal, an amazing five years and counting that he credits with shaping his current sound. This sound, and the essence of his live gigs, has been magically distilled into his most recent album, aptly titled “Evolve,” released on Ultra Records in 2007.

But Victor is not done yet. He has formed a number of successful musical relationships with the industry’s best and brightest, including DJ Vibe, Chus & Ceballos and Peter Bailey, with whom he collaborates on the decks and in the studio. The Brooklyn native also recently added a cutting-edge new studio to the DUMBO loft he shares with his wife & partner Athena and their son, where he will soon begin work on his long-anticipated artist album.

The future, for Victor Calderone and his fans, is looking truly inspiring.{tab=Video}
