“Not everyone understands House music; it’s a spiritual thing; a body thing; a soul thing.” (Eddie Amador – House Music) [Yoshitoshi Recordings, 1997]
The night is simply called â€œCafÃ© Democ Is Our Houseâ€ because the music will be simply house, Pure House!!.
From Jackin Classic deep & Underground House.
My Name Is JACK
“In the beginning, there was Jack, and Jack had a groove. And from this groove came the groove of all grooves. And while one day viciously throwing down on his box, Jack boldy declared, “Let there be HOUSE!” and house music was born. “I am, you see, I am the creator, and this is my house! And, in my house there is ONLY house music.
But, I am not so selfish because once you enter my house it then becomes OUR house and OUR house music!” And, you see, no one man owns house because house music is a universal language, spoken and understood by all. You see, house is a feeling that no one can understand really unless youâ€™re deep into the vibe of house.
House is an uncontrollable desire to jack your body. And, as I told you before, this is our house and our house music. And in every house, you understand, there is a keeper. And, in this house, the keeper is Jack. Now some of you who might wonder, “Who is Jack, and what is it that Jack does?” Jack is the one who gives you the power to jack your body! Jack is the one who gives you the power to do the snake.
Jack is the one who gives you the key to the wiggly worm. Jack is the one who learns you how to walk your body.
Jack is the one that can bring nations and nations of all Jackers together under one house. You may be black, you may be white; you may be Jew or Gentile. It donâ€™t make a difference in OUR House. And this is fresh.”

– Dj BEN GOLDMAN
– Dj MICK D (Ibiza/Manchester,UK)
A staunch representative of the Electrikal over in Thailand,
DJ Mello- D has accumulated an impressive back-catalogue of appearances at major venues around the UK even before he bounced over to the eastern hemisphere and began padding out his musical journey over there. Growing up in London after moving there at the age of 3, he would absorb the dance floor principles of electronic music (ranging from acid House to Jungle and Garage sessions) as it evolved throughout the 90â€²s.
He started his Music career on a pirate radio station Transmission-1 (107.3FM) back as early as 1992, he gleaned the experience required to rock clubs and events as prestigious as Ministry of Sound and the Notting Hill Carnival in London all the way over the globe to Club Concept CM2 and Club Demo in his home city of Bangkok as well as the unmissable Full Moon parties on Phangan Island.
Treating his destined musical path with utmost care his passion for music took him to Scotland to complete a course in Sound Engineering and Music Production. That’s where he happened to meet some kindred spirits in the early days of Electrikalâ€™s foundation, causing him to adopt their collective cause as his own. His presence in the group continually ensures a foothold in the coveted venues throughout one of the worlds most notorious party cities, if you happen to be roaming the clubs of Bangkok when heâ€™s around, go and show this boy some love.

About BEN GOLDMAN
More than a decade ago Ben Goldman began his musical voyage as DJ Benz. Born and raised in Chicago, the birthplace of House, Benz introduction to dance music came through his early experiences with new wave bands like Erasure and Depeche Mode. Then in the early 90â€™s Benz attended his first rave in Chicago where his love affair with House music truly began.
Goldmanâ€™s combination of impeccably clean …mixes and seamlessly blended classic tracks and hot, new releases would soon help him build a reputation as a true DJ. His dedication would encourage him to reach a multitude of audiences, spreading the House music funk and love everywhere he goes.
He has since DJd at every reputable club in Chicago and is currently trailblazing across Thailand and S.E. Asia. Goldman credits Chicago House legends Derrick Carter, DJ Sneak, Paul Johnson, and the French pioneers Daft Punk, as very important influences who helped shape his sound and style.
In 1997, Goldman found a new audience in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He would go on to produce several events there, attracting an average of 1,000 people. Goldman returned to Chicago and began producing similar events, including the now well-known “Wonka” and Summer of Love parties. He was no longer just a DJ, but he was also becoming a credible event producer.
