About this item

Classic and impossible to get Eddie Fowlkes track that was on Juan Atkins’ legendary Magic Tracks CD. This one never came out on the vinyl that Tresor did but was instead only available on a seldom seen bootleg 12". Now its been reissued by Crevette linked label Muga for their first release and features new mixes from OCB (Casa Voyager).

After shifting clandestinely between second hand crates as a bootleg vinyl for the last 25 years, Eddie Fowlkes’ "Deepcover" finally gets a proper pressing and 2 remixes by one of today’s most dedicated students of electro funk, OCB (Driss Bennis). Originally released on the "Magic Tracks" compilation CD by Juan Atkins, featuring tracks by artists like James Stinson and Keith Tucker, the track has all the elements of early techno soul straight from the hands of its inventor. Indescribable sounds combine in unexpected ways that just fit, pushing and pulling in all the right directions.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Painfully rare Eddie Fowlkes number that's been on the wants list of many a Detroit techno aficionado for many years. Officially done, with some excellent remixes accompanying it; this won't hang around along and shows off the creative impact of the Motor City was having some 25-30 years ago. Crucial!
