ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Aaron-Carl is:

(a) One of Detroit's most OUTspoken Singer/Songwriters.
(b) One of Detroit's most prolific Electronic Music Producers.
(c) Rocking dance floors throughout the world with his DJ/Live performances.
(d) All of the above.

If you picked "D," you're absolutely right!

Detroit native Aaron-Carl takes on the world, with his outlandish brand of electronic music. Refusing to be forced into any one genre; he writes and produces many different styles, including House, Electro and R&B...

AC's music career began in 1996, when he signed with Soul City -- a House label owned by "Mad" Mike Banks (Submerge/UR). Releasing his first two singles ("Wash It" and "Crucified") at the same time, Aaron achieved immediate international success. Quickly making a name for himself in the Underground scene, AC went on to form his own imprint -- Wallshaker.

Club anthems like "Dance Naked" and "My House" prove that Aaron-Carl is a true force to be reckoned with -- both songs made the Billboard Top 40 Dance/Club charts. House may be his main forte, but AC also finds success in the Electro/Ghettotech scene. "Down" (where he boldly confesses "I wanna go down on you, if it's the last thing that I do...") is hailed as one of the biggest records in its genre. Other honorable mentions include:

* Two Detroit Music Award nominations (Best Electronic Artist, Best Electronic Song)
* Three Performers Awards of Detroit nominations (Best Live Vocal - Male, Entertainer of the Year - Male by Male, Best Sound Operator/DJ)
* Outmusic Award nomination (Outsong of the Year) ("Bring it On")
* Featured in URB Magazine's Next 100 (2002)


AC has remixed artists such as Greg Cash, UR and the legendary Manu DiBango. He has also been remixed by Peter Rauhofer (Club 69), Doc Martin and Timo Maas; just to name a few... 2004 marks the 8th year of success in his music career, yet Aaron-Carl assures us: This is only the beginning...

This is the best CD we've heard in 2004!
This CD takes you back to the days when you used to sneak in the club and dance your ass off until you got thrown out for being underage! With a style reminiscent to LiL Louis, Aaron Carl is truly a talent and an amazing producer. His production is incredibly genius and his message is definitly the truth about being gay in our society. We first heard of Aaron Carl from Johnny Dangerous and from that we decided to check him out...very impressive! People...if you love to party and dance to REAL DEEP HOUSE, then Aaron Carl is the real deal! From beginning to end this CD is HOT as hell. This is the best CD we've heard all year of 2004...much props! This CD will never leave our CD rotation...seriously!

Aaron-Carl's 'Uncloseted' is fierce, funny and fantastic
Everything you need to know lies in the fact that I bought my partner a copy of this disc 1 year ago and he still can't get enough of it. Check out Track 10 for a laughbreak while you catch your breath after dancing so hard from the first nine tracks. "Bring it on" Mr. Aaron-Carl, we're out here waiting for the next one.

Debut of a great songwriter; Top shelf musical inebriation
"Bring It On" is the toughest, fiercest musical statement I have ever heard. It's a queer fight song, the realization in beats and lyrics of every instance of 20/20 hindsight I've ever had after hearing some knucklehead try to turn uncloseted fully self-realized homo-ness into anything less than just as good as anyone, and absolutely the best thing for me (or A-C). It's just the most admirable Out Song I know.

I'm writing this review extemporaneously, and hadn't budgeted time for it, but seeing no other reviews here I had to put down something. So forgive me for not giving ink (or pixels) to the other songs on the album -- Just know that "Uncloseted" spans a great deal of A-C's personality, from intimate warmth, to sexy, sexy carnality, to the good kind of pride, to sweet funny fatherhood (you heard me right). About the only minor quibble one can have with it is that, while it's fresh enough, it doesn't break any new ground in terms of beats and sounds, to keep up with its breakthrough articulation of a real Black Gay Man's real Out life. But I don't expect breakthrough freshness most of the time from great songwriters, anyway: I expect great songs set well. And that is absolutely delivered.
