Meet Me At China Groove…
Victor Calderone is known among Madonna fans for the great remixes he did for the Queen Of Pop.
His club versions of Beautiful Stranger, American Pie, Hollywood, What It Feels Like For A Girl and the now
classic masterpiece “Frozen” made most of us go wild on the dance floor, but, who do we have to thank for putting
the talents of Madonna and Calderone together? The name of their mutual friend is Ingrid Casares
“I was working with Ingrid in Miami. At the time she had a night club and we were working together and Ingrid loved what I was doing and she said
‘I’m gonna let Madonna hear what you’re doing. Madonna is working on her new album right now. I’m gonna introduce you guys‘.
But at the time I didn’t think anything was going to happen. I thought she was just talking basically”, Victor once told MadonnaTribe.
“One day Ingrid called me when I was in Miami and she said come and meet me at China Groove, a
restaurant in Miami and she didn’t tell me why, I went there and when I got there Madonna was sitting there
That’s how it happened. We met each other that night and she asked me if I was going to
remix her first single. And that first single then was ‘Frozen‘.
