Flash Zero – Trans-Mission Mixx

THIS IS A FREE GIVE AWAY DOWNLOAD!!! (upper right corner in the soundcloud embed)

Flash Zero is a Spanish EBM/Synth Pop project, so don’t be mislead by the trancy title.
I picked this record at ‘Recycled Music Center’ Calle de la Palma, Nº 34 in Madrid, so I bought it where that music happened. Our mate DJ F aka Idegrama hosts a lot of the music of the so called early 90s ‘Bacalao‘ scene of Valencia (kind of the Spanish New Beat wave). This music and the shop strangely features lots of German Records by the likes of Torsten Fenslau or Talla 2XLC.

The music is also called Maquina…!

The cover of ‚Trans-Mission’ features flashy pantone colors on a silver print. Very matching artwork, indeed.
However Flash Zero seems to be one of those mediocre Atari based productions.
And even my editing couldn’t really disperse the cheesy (late 80s Italo), hectic, strenous feeling throughout the track. They definitively should have saved the rim and sometimes there are two! staccato kickdrums at the same time EQed and panned differently – but still without success.
I changed the original beat intro with a more stakkato loop from the back of the track to emphasize the percussive feeling and cut vocals as I usually do.

Make up your mind on that one! And no matter what follow me and let me know if you also favour the cover to the record itself!
