Band/artist history
Dante Lattanzi is the CEO & Founder of Caelum Music Production. An active composer, music producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, his experience in music production and composition covers a wide range of entertainment media, including records, film music and television jingles, spanning genres including Pop, Rock, Dance, and R&B, as well as orchestral and choral production. Dante Lattanzis clients include HBO, MTV, Bad Boy Records, Alligator Records, The Naked Cowboy, Shemekia Copeland, The Woods Brothers, Dr. John, Cathia of NBCs The Voice and dozens of up and coming independant artists in all genres. Born in Queens, New York, Dante Lattanzi grew up speaking a trio of languages: Spanish, Italian and English. From his mother, a Peruvian flamenco gypsy vocalist, lyricist and poet, and his father, a Roman-born jazz drummer, he was immersed in diverse music and cultures. Equally resonant were the classic soul and blues artists: B.B. and Albert King, James Brown, and their spiritual heirs, Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix and Prince. At age 15, his family relocated to California where Dante Lattanzi cut his teeth playing in fledgling bands. After a move back to New York, he returned to the West Coast on his own and began concentrating on songwriting, arranging and collaborating with artists. He drummed for Clayface, a funk/rock aggregation that shared bills with Green Day and The Pharcyde. Dante also co-founded a duo called Ajatano who went on to the number one spot on MP3.coms urban and Latin charts which led Ajatano to an MP3 player endorsement deal with Rio. Ajatano rocked audiences with an inspired mix of flamenco and pop, opening concerts for Babyface, Shaquille ONeal, Shanice and Mana. Behind the board for the label American Empire Records, Dante Lattanzi sharpened his arranging and production chops as he became schooled in all aspects of recording, from budgets to content. Back in New York, he continued to build a reputation as a staff producer, composer and engineer with Jambox Recording Studio where he added sound design, mastering and vinyl restoration credits to his résumé of indie film video and game projects, in addition to recording signed and unsigned bands and artists in all styles. Among his strengths both musical and technical, flexibility is possibly his most marketable attribute. Having worked in hot box environments, Dante Lattanzi is capable of creating under intense deadlines. Blending ProTools technology with real instruments to breathe life into sound, his catalog of savvy, hit-driven songs is ever-expanding. As a creative partner, he welcomes collaborations with songwriters and artists. Whatever the situation, this empathic, enterprising and evolved writer/producer is open and prepared, as he breathes in tune and in time to the rhythms and sounds of a creative heart.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I have played live for over 10 years back when I was in bands sharing stages with bands like: Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Janes Addiction, Mana, Green Day, Pharcyde, Diggable Planets and on and on.... I do love it but I am now much more content and truly enjoy the craft of developing artists, being in the studio creating and producing music. Dont get me wrong, I still play out live just for fun and sit ins with acts that ask me to.
