From the haunting chill of “Crucified” and “Sky”, to the seductive whispers of “Down” and “21 Positions”, to soul-stirring shouts of “Alright” and “My House”. AC prides himself in not just making records, but classics. His “let me tell you something about House music” acapella (appropriately titled “The Word”) is one of today’s most sampled House vocals, while “Down” is still a staple in the clubs – for more than a decade after its release. AC also holds his own within the Hip Hop community -- particularly among the LGBT Hip Hop circles.
Most notably producing hits for legendary rapper Johnny Dangerous, his remix of the infamous "Topsy Turvy" - in which he makes a cameo appearance -- is featured in the documentary, "Pick Up the Mic." When he’s not producing or remixing, Aaron-Carl earns respect as a DJ. Countries throughout the world (France, Austria, Denmark and Iceland, to name a few) have experienced Carl’s “genderless” soul-stirring vocals mixed with a nice blend of house, techno and electro. Aaron-Carl is the host of the weekly Internet radio show, The WARMTH Sessions. He is also the founder of the Detroit record label, Wallshaker Music. After being diagnosed with cancer Aaron was optimistic.
On his facebook page he wrote: ‘Finished the bone marrow biopsy. Ouch! Now I’m preparing for the lymph node removal. Surgery, here I come!’ Despite everyone’s effort he suddenly passed away on September 30th 2010. Most of all his warm heart will be missed deeply, besides that his music will live on forever.
