Raised by a Father and Mother who were a musician & abstract painter, Eric Welton AKA Emmaculate was groomed for the arts. Growing up in a city called Elgin on the outskirts of Chicago, he was exposed to the sounds of House Music in the late 80's as a young teenager.

In 1990, Eric started collecting records & learning how to DJ & produce music. Eric was nicknamed Emmaculate as a play on words because of his immaculate attention to detail & quality. He developed his DJ'ing & production skills in House Music, Hip Hop & R&B, and became one of the go to producers & sound engineers in Chicago. He spent years working as a producer & mix engineer for many artists in the US, as well as DJ'd countless events. Over the years, Emmaculate forged relationships with some of the Chicago legends of House Music, giving him an invaluable education and mentorship.

2017 marked the year that Emmaculate began releasing music as an artist himself. Since, he has produced songs & remixes on labels 300 Ent., T's Box, Mirror Ball (in which he is a partner with Terry Hunter), Ultra, Helix, Yoruba, Nervous, Reel People, Dopewax, Z Records & more. His productions have reached the #1 spot on Traxsource many times. Emmaculate has been nominated for a Grammy 3 years in a row as a producer on the Ten City album "Judgement" in 2021, a mix engineer on Beyonce "Break My Soul (Terry Hunter Remix)" in 2022, and Mariah Carey "Workin' Hard (Terry Hunter Remix)" in 2023.
His remix of the 90"s smash "Show Me Love" by Robin S was the #1 selling record overall of 2022 on Traxsource, and his remix of Mary J. Blige's "Good Morning Gorgeous" was the #3 Afro House record of 2022 as well. The success continued into 2023 with Emmaculate giving the remix treatment to artists such as Incognito, Roy Ayers and Barbara Tucker.

As a DJ, Emmaculate has played notable events such as the revered Chosen Few Picnic & Festival in Chicago, Amsterdam Dance Event, SXSW in Austin, Miami Music Week, Suncebeat in Croatia, Mi Casa Holiday in Mexico, and Charivari in Detroit.
