Black Jazz Consortium, or Fred P as you might usually come across him as, launches the first instalment of the Reshapes and Outtakes series, a division of Soul People Music dedicated to surfacing alternate versions and mixes of tracks from 2014's Codes & Metaphors LP. "Be And Not Know" features Christina Wheeler on the vocals and a classic BJC deep house beat with a techno sensitivity, while "Thin Air" goes deeper down the rabbit hole thanks to its driving kick and furious percussion swings, and "Only You" strips things down again to deep house levels. Finally, "You Take Me Higher" features the lovely voice of Minako over a spacey, chunky Fred P groove, with his trademark bass crunch riding beneath.
