We should all be thankful JT Donaldson came back to his native Dallas. Donaldson moved to Chicago in the '98 to hone his DJ skills and start a career in production. Since his return to the local music scene a few years ago, Donaldson has been working hard to expand Dallasites' musical pallets. For the past few months he has worked under his newest business venture, Lower Echelon in collaboration with Circuit 12 with Wax Addicts, an all-vinyl night of music that brought together the best Dallas DJs. His newest gig finds him at Beauty Bar for TUE, a free weekly musical soiree featuring unique global jams. He passed along this mix to preview the new residency -- listen below.
