Bjak - RealDEEP EP . Eargasmic Recordings EGC4012
click here to listen!
After much praise from artists and DJs from all over the globe for his debut on Eargasmic’s ‘Thoughts From Chicago Vol 2′, Bjak gets his own 12″ to mark his place in the deep house world.
The ‘RealDEEP EP’ features 2 long compositions that fully embody the Bjak sound - smooth atmospheric grooves with dubby vocals and heavy bouncin’ bass. ‘U Make Me Feel’ has this strange eerie-ness to the track that still somehow gets away with being uplifting, something that ‘feels so right’.
On the flip, ‘By My Side’ takes you on an 15+ minute journey of ultra deep dance and emotion. Tracks like this remind us of why we love this thing called House.
1. U Make Me Feel
2. By My Side

RARE Michael Jackson Demos 7" - MJ1978
click to listen!
This has got to be THE best release out of the many edits, reissues, remixes, etc that have been coming out since his passing. A fresh, and extremely special 7″ featuring 2 original demos of absolute Michael Jackson classics produced by the great Quincy Jones.
These were apparently recorded in the Jacksons’ home studio in 1978 and have never seen their way to wax! Now these are demos, the rawest and most uncut studio versions with Jackson banter and laughter - these recordings gotta be rare. Also in the session with percussion duties are brother Randy & sister Janet.
This 7″ also comes in an assortment of different color sleeves!
1. Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough - Demo
2. Workin Day and Night - Demo
