Trainspotting With Emmaculate

Growing up on the outskirts of Chicago, Eric Welton, aka Emmaculate, was exposed to the sounds of House Music in the late 80’s as a young teenager and went on to hone his craft as a DJ and producer through the 90’s. Emmaculate has produced songs and remixes on labels such as 300 Ent., T’s Box, Mirror Ball (in which he is a partner with Terry Hunter), Ultra, Helix, Yoruba, Nervous, Reel People, Dopewax, Z Records and more. He has beeen nominated for a Grammy 3 years in a row – as a producer on the Ten City album, ‘Judgement’ (2021), a mix engineer on Beyoncé ‘Break My Soul (Terry Hunter Remix)’ (2022), and Mariah Carey ‘Workin’ Hard (Terry Hunter Remix)’ (2023). His remix of Robin S ‘Show Me Love’ was the #1 selling record of 2022 on Traxsource, and his remix of Mary J. Blige’s ‘Good Morning Gorgeous’ was the #3 Afro House record of 2022. The success continued into 2023 with Emmaculate remixing artists such as Incognito, Roy Ayers and Barbara Tucker, as well as originals that landed him a spot in the Top 20 Artists on Traxsource once again. As a DJ, Emmaculate has played notable events such as the revered Chosen Few Picnic & Festival in Chicago, Amsterdam Dance Event, SXSW in Austin, Miami Music Week, Suncebeat in Croatia, Mi Casa Holiday in Mexico, and Charivari in Detroit.

As his hot new remix of Ridney, Husy ft Xira ‘You Ain’t Breakin’ My Heart’ drops on Fool’s Paradise, DMCWorld goes Trainspotting with Emmaculate.

Ridney, Husky ft. Xira – You Ain’t Breakin’ My Heart (Emmaculate Remix) – Fool’s Paradise

I love when a remix idea comes easy!  This tune screamed for me to use some of the original elements and put a disco funk twist on it!

Julius Jordan ft. Eric Roberson – Real Good Time (Shannon Chambers Remix) – Mirror Ball Recordings

Julius Jordan is an alias for the union of super producers Terry Hunter & James Poyser, which is already crazy.  Then mix in Eric Roberson on vocals & Shannon Chamber on the remix, and you have an absolute gem!

Wipe The Needle, Syren Rivers – The Way (WTN Vocal Mix) – Ricanstruction Brand Limited

This joint is Soulful House perfection – driving drums, seductive keys and synth lead, and an amazing vocal performance.  Wipe The Needle is a force to be reckoned with!

Melchyor A – Get It (Melchyor A’s Touch Version) – Makin’ Moves

Every time I play this out or on my streams, it’s magical.  One of those joints that changes the vibe of the room while still moving the dancers!

Emmaculate, Lee Wilson – New Day (Club Mix) – Mirror Ball Recordings

This is one of my favorite pieces of music I worked on in 2023.  Lee delivered a great song and vocal performance, and I got a chance to really stretch out on the track.  I especially love the guitar solo by my bro LA Williams!
