Gemini

Real Name:
Spencer Kincy
Profile:
One of the most forward-looking producers in the continuing Chicago renaissance of the 1990s, Gemini first came to the world's attention through his recordings for cult Chicago labels Cajual / Relief. He began recording early in the decade, and gained fame for the minimalist flavour of Cajual twelves like ‘Tangled Thoughts' and ‘Duality'. Gemini debuted his album work in late 1997 with his stunning 'In and Out of the Fog and Lights' LP for Peacefrog, which followed 'Hibernation' and 'North Star' EP's. Being a highly sought after DJ in both America and Europe as well as an in demand producer / remix, Spencer Kincey aka Gemini is one of the most important jewels in the Chicago house crown.

Great producer.. Even better DJ from the sets i heard online. Totally on fire in the mid 90´s. I hold him in high regards as Hardy, Terrence Parker and Derrick May. In fact i would put him at the forefront of these guys.. Just way ahead of blending different genres together. His style of mixing are very much from Ken Collier´s school of playing records. Fast cutting and high paced house, and such a master putting tracks together. True selector that could make the most commercial tracks out there sound brilliant.
People dont play house like that anymore.. take chances, puts the fun into it.. Most deejays these days just safeguard themselves too much.

Guys, Spencer Kincy, a deejay of the golden era of house, and one of those jocks that put some fucking work in it for their money. There are plenty mixes left around to testify to his brilliant craft. Go out, seek, listen to Spencer and understand what spinning records is about..
Sad what happened to him tho´ .. Hope he really can come back to reality at least..

Absolute genius, almost every record he put out is guaranteed quality.
Disappeared in early 00's.. Nobody really knows where he is.

There will be reissues of some of his records in the not so distant future...

And if I may believe my source there are people who are still in contact with Mr. Spencer himself and he will get paid for all the future reissues! ;-)

Spencer's music embodies the most fundamental aspects of dance music which most other producers overlook completely. REAL FUNK, SOUL and JAZZ is represented in true form along with a totally out of this world sensibility. Not to mention the truly joyful and fun experience that his music brings. This is what house and techno is supposed to communicate. END OF STORY - - - GEMINI IS JUST THAT REAL!

One of the best. And I´ve been in this "game" for almost 20 years. Still when hearing his sets from the mid/late 90s, no one else reaches quite that high - being it Craig, Mills, Hood, Sven, Sneak, Carter. He´s just one (or two) steps beyond their reach.

What just happened to this guy? He somehow disappeared after the 90s.
