    i've heard in a looooong time.

    julius "The Mad Thinker" out of chitown.

    just thought i'd add... if you're a fan of real deeeeep proper house/garage/udm.... whatever you wanna call it... trust me when i say his mixes are absolutely stellar. ( and i've listened to ALOT of deep house sets...)

    his mixing/eq'ing is impeccable and track selection is ridiculous... no straight 4/4 bizness either... it's a trip up and down and round and through...

    mindfuckingly good deep house/underground garage....

    (all .ram files so you'll need real player to hear them. sorry. ...only format availabe right now for them online.)

    here's a few...

    "Time Capsule"

    "Musica es Mi Vida"

    "Walk With Me"

    check 'em out and really LISTEN...


    p.s. curious to hear your thoughts.

    glad people here are enjoying his stuff. i'm more than happy to pass good stuff along whether it be local flavour or intl.

    got a chance to meet and actually hang with him a bit a few years ago and we've sort of remained in touch here and there over the years...

    a really down to earth cat who's been toiling in the studio lately as well under the "Aid to the SouLless" (food for the soulful) moniker (a colaboration between him and his fellow residents "Emmaculate" and "FLX") and has some stuff coming out on the legendary "West End" label soon. i beieve he's debuting two new original vocal tracks at this year's WMC... he's billed on a few jams including his own signature "3 Degrees" jam... a class act who's humble and blessed with talent. keep an eye out for him and his upcoming releases... a quickly rising star.

    I used to go to his 3degrees shows with FLX all the time at SmartBar in Chi..it was about a block from my old place. These guys are nice dudes and cool as fuck to drink with. Always great music from their camp.

    the whole 3 degress camp is solid and their musical taste is stellar (imo of course).

    for a serious dose of deepness...

    his mixing skills (accentuation, filtering, etc.) and programming are top notch. these mixes certainly deserve a good listening to appreciate their finer points. ;)

    as for your *edit* sorry i can't help you out.

    you have to get a program that converts ram (real player files) into MP3. google it and you'll find it.

    btw, luvin this mix, the st. louis one.

    smooth and jazzy... perfect for editing business law documents which I spent my morning doing. :rolleyes:

    he's a little too eager with the weird cut-out/mid-tone fade or whatever it is though - I found it a bit distracting and disorienting. Just my $0.02.

    Haven't been able to listen to any of these, network access restricts RealMedia files. If anyone has these in MP3 hook a brutha up.

    Hey hon, if you get 'em let me know... would love to make these transportable.

    it's an intentional effect MANY (if not all) of the world's leading deep house dj's do (some more than others) to accentuate/emphasize certain parts or sounds in a track to showcase a particular element.

    ie. on a serious keyboard riff he may cut out the bass and highs to accentuate only the keys... on a smooth vocal or a particualr vocal phrase he may cut the background music as much as possible to accentuate just the vocal or words he wants to showcase.

    clausell, krivit, ferrer, boo williams, larry heard, knuckles (maybe not so much now. lol) and all of the other big jocks do it for effect and it's a technique that's been around for a LONG time and is particluarly specific to the genre of "deep house' (or whatever you want to call it) i love it when done well, especially when i'm really familiar with the original track and i hear what 'message' he's trying to convey with his eq'ing... the best of them can totally change the feel of a track and put oomph or take away 'distraction' at just the right moments to add to the power of the song.
