MWS presents: JT Donaldson
July 29, 2016 @ 10:00 pm - July 30, 2016 @ 2:00 am
MWS proudly presents Texas’s very own JT Donaldson…
With over 300 productions to his credit and numerous DJ sets all around
the globe under his belt, JT Donaldson has definitely left his mark on
modem dance music. Originally from Dallas Texas, JT got his start listening
to the productions coming out of Chicago, New York and Detroit. After a few
years of practice in his home studio, JT relocated to Chicago. Learning,
listening, collaborating and just hanging out with the now legendary
Chicago artists and Dj’s had an affect and played and important roll in his
production career. JT then headed west to Los Angeles for a period of four
years. He then moved to San Francisco, continued on to Brooklyn, NY for 2
years and now resides back in his hometown of Dallas, TX. While his
restless nature and nomadic behavior may seem strange to some people,
the experiences are what drives this artist to keep being creative and strive
for innovation in his music.
In 2003 JT started Gallery Music Group, a homegrown recording label that
has released records from Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Luke Solomon, Pty
Ltd, Urban Jazz Naturals, Vibezelect, Malcolm Charles, Joshua, Slater
Hogan, John Lamer, 2nd Shift, Jennifer Karr and many others.
JT’s side project THE HUE, has been a labor of love for the past few years.
The group consisting of Tim K of Home and Garden and DJ Damon Bell
(Oakland, CA) was formed over a 2 years ago and has receded with artists
such as Kissey Asplund of Sweden, Dam Funk of Stones Throw, Black
Spade, Bernard Wright, Mic Murphy and many others. With influences from
early house and techno to disco to hip-hop and jazz, funk and soul, The
Hue is helping to blur the genre lines and open things up for listeners and crate diggers alike.
JT has performed for commercial clients like Banana Republic for their BR
monogram launch in NYC, Fund Raisers for Bravo TV Show hosts Padma
Lakshmi as well as holding down a residency at the W Hotel in Union
