Do you live life, or are you actually LIVING life? So many fail to live the lives they truly want succumbing to the problems that life places in their midst. Caldwell “Hoodwink “Jackson is certainly not a stranger to the adversities of life. Growing up in rural Dillon, South Carolina he has seen his fair share of the hardships that life has to offer. In spite of all, Hoodwink continues to push the envelope on the underground Hip Hop circuit. Rising to stardom amongst the European ranks while stationed with the U.S. Army in Wiesbaden, Germany, he has seen success gracing stages alongside a few of HipHop’s mainstream acts.
Def Jam recording artists Dem Franchise Boys, and platinum selling recording artists Dj
Unk and the Ying Yang Twins are among the laundry list of talent Hoodwink has had the pleasure to perform with. During a 2009 recording session in Wiesbaden, Germany, DROC of the Ying Yang Twins was quoted saying,
“His style is official. Through hard work and due diligence he could be a force to be reckoned with”
The year 2010 has proven to be very fruitful for Hoodwink and his entertainment entity Live Squared LLC. Hoodwink has secured a deal with platinum selling producer/dj DJ Don Cannon and is set for a December mixtape release. He has also orchestrated a launch party hosted by DJ Don Cannon that will service 1st Armored Division’s troops returning from Baghdad, Iraq, and serve as the official Hoodwink mixtape release party.
Despite being in Iraq as a US Army soldier, Hoodwink has solidified himself not only in Hip Hop’s ranks as an artist, but as a businessman. Seamlessly patching together opportunity after opportunity, he has shown his undeniable ability to capitalize and create, regardless of the world around him.
In the Spring of 2011 Hoodwink moved back stateside and currently resides in Orlando, FL. Hoodwink & his business partner DreGoose enrolled into Full Sail University for the Entertainment Business degree program. While attending Full Sail Hoodwink has managed to record a new project entitled Falling Upwards. His new project features his latest release an a ton of new tracks never heard before. Falling Upwards is set to be release in the summer of 2012.
Live Squared LLC is the future. With ties from European nightclub management to hiphop record producing, Live Squared shows a wide array of knowledge in entertainment. With Caldwell “Hoodwink” Jackson at the reigns to steering the load, and the many indy labels, radio stations, and nightclubs under
the Live Squared umbrella, losing is NEVER and option. Carpe
Diem is the motto, and living life abundantly is the lifestyle. Do
you live life, or are you actually LIVING life?

Deenoboy always had music in his life. Starting out as a Drummer, Guitarist, Bassist, and Keyboardist, he wanted to be like his heros Herbie Hancock, Kraftwerk, Metallica and Techmaster PEB. He spent a lot of time listening to all the great records learning and perfecting new techniques. By 1983 he was introduced to MIDI, Drum Machines, Synthesizers, Samplers and Computer Based Software Sequencers and was totally mesmerized. He later discovered that his sound as a Music Producer was a mixture of all the music he grew up listening to and found it to be confusing to label it.
So he began to work hard and find his place in the music world. With rock being his favorite genre, he began experimenting by combining Rock Guitars, Synths, Turntables, Drum Machines and Acoustic Drum Kits into on powerful sound. He later decided to make his first and most powerful CD “State Of Emergency” which has a universal sound covering Pop, Metal, Electro Rock, and Soundtrack Scores together in one complete package.
