Image: 1592435 Breaking an eight-month silence, Jex returns with three new cuts!

Leading off this double A-side release (the third from the Toronto-based Good Timin' imprint) is the jazzdance of "D.Z.E.," which borrows the mood—and the ACTUAL studio musician—from Asso's Italo-disco classic "Don't Stop." Yup, Jex tracked down Steve Galante himself at his project studio in Montreal and had him blast an incredible solo that's guaranteed to elevate!

Meanwhile, Jex himself tinkles the ivories and gets his hands emotional on the DX7-meets-DMX balladry of "Please Be Good To Me," which was inspired by a DJ trip to Japan earlier this year. Picture Kevin McCord bowling with the road crew from Pat Metheny's backing band at some Midwestern dive and you just might get a whiff of the vibe on this one.

Finally, rounding out the flip on this all-thriller-no-filler AA-side is the Terje-meets-Vangelis strut of "Please Be Bad To Me." It's Jex's clubbiest material to date and it boasts one of those chugging basslines that kinda sounds like Change covering late 80s AC/DC!! Thunderstruck, indeed!!
Songs composed, performed, produced and mixed by Jex Opolis in Toronto. Piano on "D.Z.E." performed by Steven Galante in Montreal. Mastered by Rick Essig. Art direction by Isha Datar. Special thanks to Andrew Morgan at PPU.
