Jacko is well and living under the sea...

Banzai Republic's remix of Maxi Priests 'Fields' out on Music for Dreams is sublime dubby Balearic heaven, hunt it down, you wont be disappointed. Some years, however, before this release I felt extremely lucky to get my hands on one of their 'Loungin with Jacko' 12"s, it's been a bit of a secret weapon of mine, ever since, not many dj's out here have it, or any (until now that is... oh well). I remember reading that Dorfmeister loved it and played it often, no surprises there, this things got a submarine bassline that would undoubtedly appeal to the man, but there is so much detail & magic going on; shades of darkness, vocal cut ups, stretching, speeding up and manipulation, flutey loveliness, Balearic guitars and more to this epic slice of modern midtempo genius (trust me there's no exaggeration there). Jacko's quirky (OK so that may be a little polite) personality seems to be revealed here perfectly... anyway skip this for naught! - u know we love ya when we post sh*t like this...

Hey Theory! Well I always tell people who come here and thank me, I really love doing this and will continue as long as I am able to source new, old, and great music (in theory the rest of my days...), it does amaze me sometimes the responses i get, me being on the edge of Africa an' all. I must say u peaked my interest, how does a blog like mine clarify Life Issues, share if u wanna or mail me... oh and welcome and enjoy!!!
