such an incredible talent in so many ways.

approaching the 10th year of his passing, i really hope to see some increased attention paid to revisiting aaron-carol's one-of-a-kind catalogue.

there are so many people, including myself, that missed aaron-carl on earth. it is undeniable that his music continues to have incredible value, and deserves more fresh ears.

hope you are resting peacefully somewhere in the sky.

RIP Mr. Aaron

Man this really is sad. Them Detroit producers are such a small but dedicated and important family within the electronic music. Losing someone within this circle really does sets it's mark. I been tailing the Detroit scene for a time now, and Aaron-Carl's music was just so down to earth real and genuine. "Sky", "Down" & "Crucified" has made Aaron recognizable but he has made many more good and inspiring tracks. My thoughts doesn't just go out to his son, family and personal friends, but also to his Detroit brethren within music that look out for eachother. The city has lost one mighty soul.
Thank you Aaron for your wonderful music, it was really tragic and sad to lose you.

I knew Aaron personnaly, for beeing the coolest guy I've ever met.
He taught me a lot of things concerning the industry, the market, he was my mentor.
In addition, he was a real talent, as well as a singer, a songwritter, a composer and a DJ.
I remember our discussions about scheduling the W.A.R.M.T.H. tour in Europe.
When he knew about the cancer, he was still the same: a fighter!!
Aaron always had cool words, you could talk with him about everything.
When it was about music, sometimes he was rude, but you knew he was right... and incredible selector and a so extensive knowledge... I am so respectfull for all that things he did and even more, because he gave me the confidence, he was always around!
His tracks are timeless, from the first to the last ones, listen the music and hear that so unique voice, missing him is a real lack for the entire House Music scene, a master and a monster of producer from Detroit that used to bless our souls with his "Wallshaker" beats.
Love you for ever AC, R.I.P. True Legend!

I had been looking for 'Down' for ages - it wasn't until I went to Aaron's web sit that I realised 'Down' is the B-side of 'Wash It' my favourite 'filthtech' track of all time....and I've had it in my collection for 5 years - how stupid do I feel!!!! 'Down' is like a cross between DBX, Aux 88 and a New York builder in a frock circa 1979. I love this record...Aaron, you're a genius!
