"DJ ?uestlove props"

"deep house beats. global bass rhythms. 50-min of goodness from DJ AQBT http://t.co/ZwbPQ0GV props @okayafrica.com" - DJ ?uestlove


"killakam, okayafrica.com"

“DJ AQBT (AQuaBeaT) is a veteran spinner of Haitian descent raised in the predominantly West Indian neighborhood of Flatbush, Brooklyn. His concoction of deep electronic beats and global dance rhythms is influenced by a wide range of acts — he cites the likes of Afrika Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation, German electronic pioneers Kraftwerk, and the avant-garde synthpop of Art of Noise as leaving a mark on his eclectic style. ” - Killakam


"Soul People Music Newsletter"

“DJ Aquabeat's "(AQBT)" penetrating vocals on Amazon My Amazon backed by a deep dark brooding bassline got the attention label head Fred P and was blessed with a retelling that only BJC can deliver.” - Soul People Music


"DJBroadcast.net"

“Selected is a collection of eight tracks. One was composed by Fred P himself, while the seven that come before it are selections carefully chosen by him. The collection feels just right on all fronts. It’s nearly one hour long, which might seem lengthy for only eight songs. Somehow, though, it’s perfect. The pace from start to finish is fantastic, a testament to Fred P’s curation and the ordering of the tracks he chose. From DeepJust AQuaBeaT’s “Interpretation” to Fred P’s “N.Y. (Selected Dub),” it flows beautifully. Nothing is out of place. It all fits. “Interpretation” starts Selected off right, easing you in with its droning synths and mellow, bass-driven sound.” - Adrian McCavour

"Beautiful"

AQBT (Deep Just AQuaBeaT) and Mona Bode offer this as one of the most inspirational pieces in dance music history. Mona's calming voice shares an uplifting and reflective spoken lyric amid a framework of two perspectives. AQBT's original 'DeepJust' mix weaves a deep synth tapestry gracefully flowing over afro-driven rhythms, while Pirahnahead's 'Epiphany' mix lends a warm and soulful example of the original. - Whasdat Music


"Know Rhythm Podcast"

“When I think of wide spectrum, as far as music, one of the people that come to mind is DJ Aquabeat. A priest of sound marrying various musical forms into one wave... ” - Jefree Gasoulean


"BarCrawls.com"

“The hallmark of a great selector is the ability to mix music that fills a dance floor but can also be enjoyed during the day—you know, the daytime, those off-hours that clutter our lives between starry moments when real life happens. DJ AquaBeat is one such selector. DJ AquaBeat's selection wizardry shines, throwing open the portal between tech house and Caribbean dance.” - William Hubenschmidt


"SoundDesigners Radio"

“(Translated from Portuguese) We left here one promovideo of our next EP. The Deep.Just AQuaBeat is the name and have some diffrent content on that. Some kind of House/Deep House calling the african context. Could we call it Afro-House?Is something that we tried to bring on this EP with DJ AQuaBeat(Justin) and we made it. Justin from Brooklyn make his vibe hot with flow’s of percussion, bringing always the keys with smooth harmony.I dont know but…this work have a real nice deep flow.“I beat my drum” is the track that bring some remixes by Pirahnahead and PeteBlas, and there is space to hear the sample of “I beat my drum” with same nice interpretatios with the 2nd version too of Justin with the deep touch one. Well…you have to listen to really feel it and tell something…. Enjoy!!” - SoundDesigners Radio

Bio

Dj/Producer Deep Just AQuaBeaT (aka DJ AQuaBeaT) is a veteran of the NYC house music scene with over 25 years behind the turntables and even more on the dance floor.  Deep Just AQuaBeaT is known for his technical approach, thoughtful selection and fuel injected sets.  His productions, like his playing are a soulful blend of deep electronic beats and tribal rhythms. "I want to play the tracks that hit you where you feel, way before you hear. Tracks that you may know but never expect to hear out and the one's you do, interpreted in a way you never expected...and its got to be deep."  

His music collection was already impressive before he ever stepped behind a set and a friend's turntables left at his home for safe keeping opened the door to the world on the other side of the dance floor. Mix tapes started flowing immediately and served as the soundtrack for at home dance sessions for he and his friends.  The tapes featured the b-sides of the hottest house tracks of the day as well as jazz, soul, electronic and world music.  The musical focus was always on tracks they never heard out.  These music and dance workouts laid the foundation for and evolved into GetOpen Sessions (www.getopensessions.podomatic.com).

DJ AQuaBeaT has been on the bill with some of the most influential house dj's and producers in the business; Boddhi Satva, Dhundee, Op, Jihad Muhamad, ?uestlove, Josh Milan, Nickodemus, Julius the Mad Thinker, Fred P (Black Jazz Consortium), Hallex M, Dj Qu, Oscar P, Jose Marquez, Dj Disciple, Hard Hittin' Harry and Sabo to name a few.  He's played in NYC, Washington DC, Omaha, Boston, St. Louis, Denver; (Miami) Winter Music Conference; The Detroit Electronic Music Festival and the Mi Casa Es Su Casa Holiday in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico and Tamarindo, Guanacasta & San Jose, Costa Rica.  Deep Just has releases on United Music Records, Soul People Music, Heavy and Sound Designers Recordings and has been remixed by the likes of Fred P, Hallex M, PeteBlas and Pirahnahead.
