Notes

This release was intentionally pressed with white labels to make it look like the old school "Dj Promo's" often pressed in the U.K. in the early 90's. These promo's had white labels with a stamp on it, saying "Dj promo, Not for Sale". So this release was pressed with a white label and all vinyls were stamped by hand by Dj Promo himself. Special stamps were manufactured for this release. They added an extra Promo sticker as a bonus. Since there was no center label, the cover varies from the rest of the Bzrk Black Label series which have covers with cut out center holes.

A2 uses samples from "KRS One - Step Into A World".

I already played this record a lot but at a time the tune of 'Bad Boy DJ' on A2 sounded a bit familiar to me and in wondered were i heared it before. Digging into my collection i first couldn't find a record were a tune a like it was on. Some time later when I played my copy of Babyboom Records 004 'Obliterator - Ruff To da Max' the tune i was looking for earlier sounded trough my speakers. The B2 track called 'Wicked Drums' had a striking resemblance to Promo's 'Bad Boy DJ'. This Babyboom was released a year earlier than this 'Not For Sale EP'. That was not all because when I decided to layer the tracks an even more similitude came to light. 'Bad Boy DJ' starts with another beginning, after this first part a silence comes and when the bassdrums come mix in 'Wicked Drums' from the start, you will soon find out that the tunes and setup perfectly match up. The start from 'Bad Boy DJ' and the end are different but for the rest it almost can't miss 'Wicked Drums' were Promo's inspiration for 'Bad Boy DJ'. I've contacted Promo and recalled this similarity but he claims it was not his inspiration and he doesn't even know the Babyboom release. This is one of the few records he doesn't own. Maybe nice to check it out yourself and see, ehhumm listen....
