Gemini – Tribute Vol 2 (Robsoul, ROBSOUL105) (Preview Clips)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2012 by J.D.

March 2011 saw Phil Weeks’ Robsoul Recordings revisit 4 of Gemini’s classic tracks, originally released on Cyclo Recordings in the 1990’s.  The release, simply called ‘Tribute EP’, was all that needed to be said about the impact Spencer Kincy has had on Phil Weeks’ own brand of house music.   January 2012 will see round two hit the shelves as four more Gemini tracks from the Cyclo vaults will be released as Tribute Vol 2.

The release of the first Tribute EP in March helped take Gemini’s music to a new generation.  Publications including DJ Mag, DeBug and 5 Mag all leant their support along with DJs including Soul Clap, Maya Jane Coles, Till Von Sein, Lee Burridge, D’Julz, Deetron, Danny Tenaglia, Catz N Dogz, Spencer Parker, Doc Martin, Charles Webster, the list goes on and on (…and on).

The Tribute EPs prove that, despite no longer being involved in the music scene, Spencer Kincy’s genius touch remains.

5 Magazine’s Terry Matthews on Gemini:
“Spencer Kincy was giant in Chicago’s House Music revival – part of the second wave of younger DJs and producers that took the music of the early 1980s, rubbed it up and dropped it in places like 500 West Cermak, Medusa’s and the Vault. A lot of people who are now superstars of the scene – Mark Farina, Sneak, Derrick Carter, and dozens of others – were a part of that movement, too. Spencer released a number of tracks on Relief, Planet E, Cajual, Peace Frog – labels representing the classics of that era – and he usually recorded under the name Gemini.”

In response to the recent disaster in Japan, we are supporting a newly launched website called ‘SOUL AID: music for japan’


It’s a simple platform to share music donated by artists along with their personal message for FREE. The main objective is to cheer up and give mental or spiritual support to Japanese music fans by delivering them sincere thoughts and music from some of their favourite artists.

Our secondary objective is to call members of the music community around the world for donations, to make a small financial contribution to the relief efforts for the most needed. All proceeds will be donated to a Japanese emergency relief organization called Civic Force, who are currently operating in Kesennuma city.

We have 8 tracks, kindly provided by Thomas Fehlmann, Alexkid, International Feel, Nico Purman, Barker & Baumecker, Charles Webster, DJ Cosmo and Miss Kittin,
posted now. Many more will follow.
More information about this project, music and donation can be found on the additional pages on the website.

PRESENCE feat SHARA NELSON Sense of Danger (Calibre remixes) Juno Records 12″ Vinyl(JUNO10X)(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 9, 2010 by J.D.

Title: Sense Of Danger (Calibre remixes)
Label: Juno
Cat: JUNO 10X
Format: white vinyl 12″
Released: 12 July, 2010

Producer, label boss, DJ & remixer extraordinaire, Charles Webster will need no introduction to house music lovers. From his early days working at Square Dance Studios in Nottingham engineering for celebrated labels such as Time and DiY his unquestionable talent has seen him DJ all over the world, remix tracks on labels such as Defected, Buzzin’ Fly, Freerange and Dessous and release numerous records under various guises such as Furry Phreaks, DJ Profile and Presence. Under the moniker of Presence he teamed up with Massive Attack vocalist Shara Nelson to create the deep house anthem “Sense of Danger” which was released on the seminal deep house label Pagan. With Shara’s deeply emotive vocal layered over tough beats, metallic synths and soaring strings, this still sounds as fresh and as relevant as it did 12 years ago. This release sees the first drum & bass remix of the series, which we have entrusted in the accomplished hands of Dominick Martin aka Calibre. Anyone familiar with his work or who has heard his most recent album “Shine A Light” will know he is an artist unconfined to the restraints of the norm, and he displays this by flipping the original vocal on its head to create an alternative chorus to the original, embellished with stirring classical strings and spooky pads.
