Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houslonvoice.com JUNE 17,2005 17 JOHNNY HOOKS The 'Ancient Babylon Tour' comes to Houston Saturday with the QAF club as it might have appeared in Babylonia, circa 200 B.C. Time of decadence TO PARAPHRASE "AND THE BEAT Goes On" by Sonny and Cher, "Circuit parties were once the rage, uh huh, but history has turned the page, uh huh." Let's face it the era of the mega circuit scene is over. Gone are the long weekends in exotic cities, with shirtless men remaining awake for days on end. According to Adam Gill, president of Embrace Productions, the company bringing "Queer as Folk: The Ancient Babylon Tour" to South Beach on Saturday "It all happens for a reason. The original scene grew out of a need to feel the bonds of the AIDS crisis - slip off us. It was liberating. Now the scene is more mature. Less commitment, yet all the fun and atmosphere without spending a lot of money and taking a week off." Gill knows of what he speaks. In association with Showtime Networks, Gill's Embrace Productions has criss-crossed the country over the last three years with different versions of the Babylon Tour. "Queer As Folk: The Ancient Babylon Tour" builds on the momentum of the highly successful "Queer As Folk: The Babylon Tour of 2003," which recreated the club from the popular cable show and "Queer As Folk: Future Babylon Tour" of 2004, which re-imagined the club as it would look in 2200. For the "Queer As Folk: Ancient Babylon Tour" Showtime Networks and Embrace Productions reinterpret what Babylon would look like as the birthplace of decadence, the ancient city of Babylonia, in the year 200 B.C. Houston will be treated to Superstar DJ Abel, spinning the tunes that he highlights on his new CD "Queer as Folk: Club Babylon." A slew of dance floor faves by icons of gay America are remixed on the new CD including Kristine W, Carl Cox, Loleatta Holloway, Murk and Gadjo. The name DJ Abel is familiar to many remix aficionados. Born in New Your City, Abel Aguilera has always had a love for music. At thirteen, Abel moved to Miami where his fever for the turntables began. In 1980, Abel was offered jobs spinning at nightclubs on Miami's famous Bickell Avenue. Local radio producers caught on to his infections rhythms and soon Abel had his own mix show on Miami's Super Q FM 107. Abel's notorious show ran nearly ft MORE INFO "Queer as Folk The Ancient Babylon Tour' 9 p.m.-4 a.m. Saturday South Beach 815 Pacific wwwcircuitticket.com seven years. In March of 1996, Salvation opened in South Beach. The promoters brought Abel in to spin Saturday nights, and he has never looked back. Soon afterward, Abel and famed remixer Ralph Rosario partnered and created the production and mixing team known as "Rosabel." Together they have had the opportunity to work with Otmar Liebert, Gloria Estefan, Donna Summer, Jeanne Tracy and others. Abel is now the resident DJ at Orbit Miami. HOUSON BABYLON REVELERS WILL once again be treated to a performance by RKM, also known as Rubio and Kidd Madonny. They may have begun as simple go-go boys in 1995, but Rubio and Kidd's vision has evolved into the present day artistic arena of RKM Design and Production, Inc. Gill still speaks in awed tones when he discusses RKM from his Toronto office. "They are amazing. Sometimes I don't know how they do it. They create the entire set and all the different elements that go into them. The stunning visuals, the lights, everything. They set it all up, it takes about 24 hours at each stop, perform at each stop, then somehow manage to break it all down and get to the next location." Gill looks forward to returning to Houston's South Beach. "Houston has been great to us. We love it." And, Jim McDermaid and Gill are longtime friends. Make sure you get there early, since the first 200 people through the door will receive a free CD from tour sponsor Midori and Centaur Music.
