The king is dead long live the king! The tragic loss of Michael Jackson, the biggest pop star of all times, caused mourning and sorrow all over the world.
But inside the hearts of his countless fans his music will live on forever and cover mankind with love and happiness. In honour of Michael Jackson the German record label BigCityBeats in collaboration with renowned house producer D.O.N.S. will release an official cover version of his most remarkable track: the Earth Song!
Based on a catchy melody the King Of Pop evoked lyrical deepness and emotionality with simple but memorable lyrics while broach global socially critical issues in a very sensitive way. While Earth Song wasnt released in the US as single at all, the track became Michaels very first #1 hit in the German single charts and is still his best selling release in the UK!
Oliver Goedicke, better known as D.O.N.S., is a veteran of the German house scene. His first single Drop the Gun was the very first release on famous Kontor Records in the mid 90s and managed at once to enter German single charts. This first strike was succeeded by a row of follow up hits like Pump Up The Jam, Big Fun, Nighttrain or You Used To Hold Me and remixes for Bob Sinclar, Dirty South, Roger Sanchez, Erick Morillo With the release of Earth Song D.O.N.S. becomes part of the BigCityBeats family, which will be complemented this autumn by DJ Sammy who immediately contributed an igniting remix to Olivers single.
