House music reigned supreme at Vagabond Saturdays throughout 2009, with

weekly performances by such classic house luminaries as

Frankie Knuckles, Little Louie Vega, Jellybean Benitez, and Jesse

Saunders. So far the soulful house vibes promise to live on at the downtown

hotpot in 2010, and Saturday night brings a special show by DJ/producer Julius

the Mad Thinker, one of the great enduring exponents of the Chicago

house sound.

As co-founder of the internationally-renowned DJ collective

3Degrees Global, JtMT has garnered a solid reputation since the '90s, spinning

alongside legends like Frankie Knuckles, Farley "Jackmaster" Funk, Derrick


Louie Vega, Derrick May and Ron Trent, among others. He's made

his mark playing at top clubs in the house birthplace of Chicago,

in addition to the Detroit Electronic Music

Festival, Louie

Vega's Roots at Cielo in New York City, Marques Wyatt's DEEP event in

Los Angeles, and various parties in Boston, San Francisco, Washington

D.C., and Miami.

In June of last year, JtMT came down to Miami to shoot the music video for

"Dejame", a soulful upbeat Afro-Latin house number produced in

collaboration with Kaialexander. The video pays homage to Miami's small

but loving house music scene and laid-back Latin flair.

Saturday's performance at Vagabond comes on the heels of the music video's premiere, which will get a screening in the club's main room at

midnight on Saturday. Julius The Mad Thinker will be joined on decks by Saraswati resident DJ Ivan


Julius the Mad Thinker at The Vagabond, Saturday, January 9, doors open at 10 p.m. 30 NE 14th Street, downtown Miami.

Check out the video teaser for "Dejame" after the jump.
