    For me Will doesn't need a record deal.. He doesn't need any more success.. he doesn't need any more money.
    The formula is very simple.. go to Jeff's house for a couple of weeks.. rock out with the playlist crew.. leave there with a masterpiece.. release it on your own.
    Jeff can show him how.. cut out the middle men and connect directly with the fans. Look at how much attention these two shows have created. Can you imagine the buzz if Jeff and Will actually completed another album.

    Da Brakes got a reaction from Ale in So I Saw Jeff Last Night...   
    So last night I rode solo and went to see Jeff perform at a local club near to me and as usual his set was amazing.  I haven't been able to see the last couple of shows so was excited to get back to seeing Jeff do his thing!  It amazes me that in all the countless shows I've seen Jeff spin no two sets are ever the same and he manages to keep the crowd partying from start to finish.
    There was no Chris there this time so I don't know whether the Vinyl Destination series is still going or if he has another project on the go at the moment.  Steve and Ferno (along with Dayne) where there and as usual they really make you feel like part of the family.  I really have to stop and count my blessings that as a lifelong fan of JJFP, I, and a few others from the board are in the position to attend as many Jeff shows as we do and also get to hang out with the man himself afterwards.
    Jeff played an eclectic mix of music which touched every person in the club...  some of the highlights for me where Summertime, Jeff's Reggae set, Jeff's West Coast Hip Hip Set and he even slipped in the Fiesta remix.  This is the first time seeing Dayne being Jeff's MC since Skillz has taken up DJ'ing full time and I must say he was extremely good.  He had the crowd hyped and knew Jeff's set inside out.  His freestyles were on point as well and extremely well delivered.  He is also a humble dude as well.  Having had a brief conversation with him, I can see him doing big things in the music biz.  I was so pleased to get the physical copy of the album as well.
    So after Jeff's set, I get access to the VIP section and get to have a chat with Mr Magnificent.  I immediately tell him how ridiculously excited I am about the tour scheduled for next year and how we are all waiting with bated breath for more details to be announced.  I also say that I am looking forward to when Will and Jeff get their project underway and we finally get that illustrious JJFP album we have all been waiting for.  Jeff said that the tour is going to be something special and told me some of the ideas they have spoken about for it. (it sounds great!!!) He said that Will is really excited to do it so I think we can safely say that it will happen in some form or fashion.
    Whilst I was there, Jeff also told me about the new DJ Jazzy Jeff app that had literally just been released on the app store (he received the notification whilst we were talking).  He encouraged me to download it so of course I did and he said that I would be the first person in the world to have it which I was pretty chuffed about!
    All in all it was an amazing night and the best part about it is I get to do it all again with Kev again on Saturday!  There was so many more questions I wanted to ask that I'll hopefully remember for the weekend.
    All in all a great night with the baddest DJ on the planet and his amazing team around him.
    Shout out out to Neil from the forum as well who spotted me from across the room who I had a brief conversation with!  Great meeting you dude and hope to see you at another Jeff show soon.

    Welcome to the board and thank you for sharing. Nothing beats the first time you get to witness Jeff do his thing. 
     
    He  is a genius at what he does and to actually see it is mind blowing. Definitely a great excuse to see him again.. And trust me... It doesn't get old!

    New Michael Jackson album to be released in May



    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-26824983

    A new Michael Jackson album, featuring eight new tracks from the late artist's archive, will be released on 13 May.
    Titled Xscape, the track listing was chosen by Epic Records chairman LA Reid, who trawled through four decades of Jackson's demos and off-cuts.
    The tracks were then updated by the likes of Timbaland, who works with Justin Timberlake, and Stargate, who have produced Rihanna and Beyonce.
    Reid called the process of reworking the songs "contemporizing".
    "Michael left behind some musical performances that we take great pride in presenting through the vision of music producers that he either worked directly with or expressed strong desire to work with," said Reid.
    "We are extremely proud and honoured to present this music to the world."
    A deluxe edition of the album will also feature the eight tracks in their original form alongside the remixed versions.
    Xscape is the only track on the album to be updated by its original producer - Rodney Jerkins, who worked on the sessions for Jackson's final studio album, Invincible, in 2001.
    John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of Jackson's estate said: "Michael was always on the cutting edge and was constantly reaching out to new producers, looking for new sounds.
    "He was always relevant and current. These tracks, in many ways, capture that spirit. We thank LA Reid for his vision."
    'Lumpy'
    Other producers involved in the project include McClain and Jerome "J-Roc" Harmon.
    Jackson died on 25 June, 2009, at the age of 50 from an overdose of the powerful anaesthetic propofol.
    He had been out of the public eye for several years but was preparing for a series of comeback performances at the O2 arena in London.
    Jackson, who was nicknamed The King of Pop, had dozens of hits during a career that began in childhood with the Jackson 5.
    His biggest solo hits included Thriller, Beat It, Billie Jean, Bad and Man in the Mirror.
    One previous album of unreleased material, titled Michael, was issued in 2010.
    Among its better tracks were Hold My Hand, a duet with R&B singer Akon which was almost complete at the time of his death, and a cover of Yellow Magic Orchestra's Behind the Mask, which dated from the 1980s.
    But critics were not keen - with The Guardian calling the album "lumpy" and "schlocky". Rolling Stone magazine noted: "He would not have released anything like this compilation".
    However, the album sold relatively well (although well below the 51m he achieved with Thriller) paving the way for future compilations.
