Lately, we haven't seen anything new from Mr. Flash lately. He's mostly been doing gigs and has been consumed producing Mos Def's new album. What can ya do? Anywho, I decided to revisit Mr. Flash because I was listening to Monsieur Sexe the other day and was simply blown away by how great Mr. Flash truly is.
First, we have a track from Mr. Flash's funkfilled, hip-hop hybrid, "Champions - EP".
"Disco Dynamite" - Mr. Flash
What better track to see Mr. Flash's wide range of genius in this album than through the intro!
This track is the pre Blatta and Inesha era, porno style track. French do it sexy.
Mr. Flash Remixes
The first remix I simply love by Mr. Bosquet is that of the "Bongo Song." Bongo Song was one of the earlier releases of Ed Banger, from the briefly lived Zongamin. For those greatly knowledged in their Ed Banger history, the "Bongo Song - EP" was an incredible EP and even though his visit was brief, his track gave a hit single jumpoff to the label. Anywho, Mr. Flash did an incredible remix of this already hardcore track. A slower, funk filled version of the originally quite instrumental version, Mr. Flash takes this track to another level of greatness.
The next notable remix by Mr. Flash was a remix done for the wonderful Delicious Vinyl record label. This is a great remix, because of its great instrumentation, and rise and falls. A perfect mixture of electro and hip-hop. It works magically. It's like out of nowhere, those french know stuff about hip-hop we don't even know.
Sittin On Chrome (Mr. Flash Sittin on Cr02 Remix)" - Masta Ace
Album: Delicious Vinyl All-stars Rmxxology
To end it all, Mr. Flash is a pure merging genius. His ability to combine and taste so many genres from such different ends of the spectrum is incredible. He has a very distinct sound, and the talent of a madman. Hopefully this post will teach you kids a lesson, to not forget about the genius of Mr. Flash.

This news is non Ed Banger related. But sorta related since Justice devoted their "D.A.N.C.E" to him.
I had to dedicate a post to the beloved Michael Jackson. This man was the king of pop. His legacy reaches far beyond even the present, farther than we even realize. Without his crucial pioneer of pop music, we wouldn't have half the genres or level of musicianship we have today. He laid the foundation for the future of music. Without him, we would have nothing.
I can't stress enough how important he was to the future of music; from the very first (still debated) music video to the classic and legendary "Thriller" album, Michael altered everybody's lives. Through all his quirks, and controversial event, Michael was important.
He IS important.
We love you and we will miss you Michael, and your legacy will live for ever.
And thankyou for all you have done for music and the future generations.

Anywho, this is the first video we found with SebastiAn working the machines like a pure genius. Which is quite.....epic. The main track in this video is:
"Dog" - SebastiAn (Album: Ed Rec, Vol. 3)
And it sounded like he was fading into:
"Momy" - SebastiAn (Album: Motor - EP)
Holy Sh*t. Master At Work.

For those of you who don't know, the Rockness Festival is a yearly music festival held in Scotland, U.K. The festival first started in 2006, and has continued to be hosted and grow in size ever since.
Rockness has consistently had amazing artists such as Felix Da Housecat, Soulwax, Fatboy Slim, and Pete Tong. This year surely will NOT dissapoint.
Busy P, DJ Mehdi, Feadz, Krazy Baldhead are to appear on Saturday at the "Bollywood Skinny presents Soma Records / Ed Banger Records / Sub Club Party" Stage.
But perhaps the biggest news of all is the revealing of Feadz new EP tracks at the festival. Which is due to come out July 6th. We already know that the A-trak of the EP is titled "Constant Ovulation." Which is supposedly, as Busy P says, a "monster"
And remember, Feadz new EP "People Money Numbers Business" comes out on July 6th.
I'm excited. For ticket purchases and more info, visit ROCKNESS
I leave you with a track from Feadz.

Vicarious Bliss has come up with a simply devine instrumental rework of Krazy Baldhead's main single "Sweet Night" off the album "The B Suite", released earlier this year.
This remix quite appropiately titled the "Psychebabble Rework", truly revels in the more instrumental talent of the seemingly indie edged Vicarious Bliss.
A lovely collaboration of string instruments and piano melodies, this piece truly emphasizes Krazy Baldhead's notion to distinguish his tracks as "movements".
A basic, yet lovely track, I thought this shows some of the more instrumental talents of the more hidden artist of Ed Banger. The wonderful Vicarious Bliss.

Oh Snap. Feadz is due to come out with a new EP called: People Money Numbers Business, on July 1. I'm still hung up on his last EP, "Happy Meal" which was truly incredible. The "Numanoid" track was incredibly fresh.
Anywho, we'll keep you posted, and you can bet we're gonna try and get our sticky little fingers on the tracks before anybody else! We are eagerly dripping with anticipation to see what dope miracles Feadz has whipped us this time around.
UPDATE: New Feadz tracks posted in a newer post! Check it out!
