Rebirth label boss Rennie Foster recently did a collaboration with Aaron-Carl and is giving the EP away in Aaron’s memory.
This is what he had to say:
Aaron-Carl passed away last week loosing his battle with the illness.
The acclaimed Detroit house singer and producer, after canceling his European tour, wrote an entry on his MySpace blog explaining his trials in and out of the hospital. Earlier last week, he posted a video on his homepage discussing his official cancer diagnosis. But after a few days the sad news arrived..
Surely one of Detroit’s most enduring and soulful artists, Aaron refused to be boxed into one genre. His signature sound crosses genres; from soulful, gospel-infused House, to the dirtiest ghettotech anthems. His productions have graced various labels throughout the world, including Subject Detroit, Ovum, Metroplex, Universal France, Room With A View and his own imprint, Wallshaker Music .
But first of all…a partner, a father, a brother, a friend, a hero, an inspiration and true joy in the lives of everyone he touched….Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this time.
Our recent collaboration with ‘Savior’ (included in Rennie’s album ‘Blood Sugar’) has more special meaning now…
