DJ Flack - Meet Mr. Doobie / Story of Oh
of Oh (DJ C Mix)
DJ Flack takes a trip into the jungle
with Meet Mr. Doobie, where blazing beats collide with Flack's
tradmark sale-bin samples. Story of Oh is a late '90s classic
from his Dispenser album, which also contained
the Story of Oh remix by EOSS.
That remix has been refixed by DJ C for this record. The 2005
version moves the crowd throgh a dub-hop-junglistical interpritation
of the moody original [Story
of Oh Original Mix MP3].
"With 'Meet Mr. Doobie,' DJ Flack proves that the kitschy tiki-lounge
jungle breaks pioneered by Luke Vibert on his seminal trilogy
of Plug 12-inches still sound as fun and fresh as they did when
they were released nearly a decade ago."
-Howard Shih, Grooves Magazine
"Fucking hellfire - Mashit 6&7!! Goddamn - the next
2 Mashit 12s are fucking SMOKING man! I'm battling the urge to
play all tracks from both back-to-back on the radio show, I swear.
They're all off the hinges mate, seriously. Oh yes - these are
gonna get fucking RINSED in coming weeks! Peace - and much props!"
- Mr. Trick, Rhythm Incursions, Resonance FM, London
DJ Flack (AKA Antony Flackett) specializes in producing a unique
brand of beat science spanning the spectrum of music and video.
As an electronic musician, his source material ranges from live
instruments to bizarre snippets of obscure records rearranged
and tweaked into submission. His first solo recordings were featured
on the Toneburst Collective compilation CD in 1998 (Bliss Recordings).
In 2000 Bliss released Flack’s full length CD Dispenser.
Before that he was a member of the beyond underground art-punk
band Soothing Sounds for Baby. These days he and DJ C run the
weekly club night Beat
Research together in the Boston area. They also perform (and
record) together as DuoTone,
creating bombastic beat collages with turntables, laptops, microphones,
and video projections. In this configuration they've rocked clubs,
museums, theaters, and parties from New York City to Prague.
As an MC, Flack attacks complicated social issues with a sardonic
wit while DJ C rocks the human beatbox. Flack is also an accomplished
multi-media artist whose videos have been shown the world over,
from New York’s Knitting Factory, to the Museum of Modern
Art in Stockholm Sweden. He incorporates interactive animation
into his live sets, as well as his website www.DJFlack.com.
