Ursula 1000 (Baltic Room)

First appeared in the Seattle Weekly, November, 2002

There have been other acts that have mined the rich depths of cocktail lounge and spy themes for sample material, but Ursula 1000—with a keen sense of rhythm and giddy fun—pokes his nose out of the pack. Known as Alex Gimeno to his mother, he grew up in Miami but relocated to New York to take the DJ world by storm. He’s put out three volumes of his exhaustive record vault expeditions for The Thievery Corporation’s Eighteenth Street Lounge records and will provide all who attend just what they need most at this time of the year: a few hours of carefree, funky fun.
