Sandy Vee’s blend of melodic pop chops, studio expertise and underground aesthetics has culminated in a fresh new sound that brings an underground mentality to the realm of worldwide smash hits.
He is exceptional amongst hit producers, as he does the final mixes to almost all work himself.
Sandy Vee has become an increasingly regular presence on the global charts with hot new releases from a dizzying array of Top 40 A-list artists, including Rihanna’s “Only Girl (In The World)” and “S&M”, Katy Perry’s “Firework,”, Ne-Yo’s “Beautiful Monster”, Taio Cruz’s “Higher”, David Guetta’s “Sexy Bitch”, Pitbull feat. T-Pain’s “Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor)”, Nicole Scherzinger’s “Boomerang”, Nikki Williams’ “Glowing”, and many more to come.
Sandy played out in clubs for only a short six months, but now focuses on behind the scenes production. “I’d been playing out as a DJ, mostly for fun. I was spinning at Pacha in Ibiza for their ‘F**k Me I’m Famous’ party a couple of years ago, and David Guetta came up to me after my set to tell me how much he loved my track ‘Bleep’.”
Once the two producers bonded, what was planned to be a one-track deal — co-producing the will.i.am song “On The Dancefloor” — turned into Sandy working on eight songs for Guetta’s groundbreaking album One Love. Sandy is especially proud of his work with Guetta, as the overwhelming global triumph of the One Love album has had a noticeable effect on popular music at large, including hip-hop.
It was during Sandy’s first trip to New York City in November of 2009 when he first met up with Stargate, the Norwegian production team who have had much American urban and pop success. The connection has resulted in a fruitful working relationship with co-production/co-writes on hit songs like “Firework” (Katy Perry), “Only Girl (In The World)”, “S&M” (from Rihanna’s forthcoming “Loud” album), “Beautiful Monster” (Ne-Yo) and many more to be confirmed.
Sandy Vee is currently residing in New York City.
