Coming off his successful collaboration with Pex Africah and nkokhi, Dj Micks is back with his second EP, Baainar Digital and Dj Micks brings you Behind my Headphones. A personal journey to the life of a dj and many broken hearted djs out there.

When I set down and produced the track it was done from the heart. The inspiration came from a recent breakup I had due to personal circumstances. It was very difficult for me to finish the EP because it felt like I was dwelling in the past instead of moving forward but after I spoke to Sphelele and she sent me the lyrics that she wrote for the track, I knew I had to finish it, not for me personally but for the house music fans out there, for Sphelele and for my ex because I feel that these are words that she needs to hear from me after months of silence from my side.

All three tracks have their own uniqueness to them. The original version, being the 1st track, is an intro to the journey that's about to unfold throughout the EP. The thumping kick and the dynamic guitar synth, and the soon to come oscillated bass syth, introduces the listener into the mind of Dj Micks. How he felt when making the track.

The second version, being Dj Mick's personal favorite, let's you focus more on the lyrical presence whilst snapping away to the beat. It's calmness characteristic makes the listener reflect not only on what the track is about, but also whatever it is that might be going on though the listener's head at the time, whether it be reminiscing on a long lost friend, family member, etc, this version captures that feeling.

The final version, Afro mix is for all the African House music lovers out there.
