Flash Atkins feat. Danielle Moore - Chant No.1 (DATG Remix) by Flash Atkins
Buy it Here
Or On Beatport
Flash Atkins…Superhero, boozer and welfare sponger is back with a remix package of Chant No. 1 (I Don’t Need This Pressure On) originally by 80s chubsters Spandau Ballet.
Chant No.1 features Crazy P’s Danielle Moore on vocals and was out last year as part of the Fags & Booze EP. It’s quirky nu-disco got props from Chris Coco, Groove Armada, Leo Zero & Cosmic Disco. The tracks in this package are the result of a remix competition that We Are Woodville ran.
Manchester’s DATG have created side-chained piece of deep, dark disco that guaranteed for dancefloor mayhem, especially after the drop!
New kid on the block Aaron’s Smith’s Stop The Car remix goes down the disco edit route by cutting things up and piecing it back together to ride the groove with snatched efx.
It’s a quirky all round a package that hits the disco zetgeist!
Jim Stanton (Horsemeat Disco) - GREAT! In the set , what good sound. I still play the original and will def be giving this a good play. Love it!
Stuart Knight (Toolroom) - I think i'm becoming a BIG FLASH ATKINS fan !!! Aaron Smiths mix is the one for me here.
Billy Scurry - Killer, been hammering the original, great package...ten stars
Untitled Music - Funky nu-disco house 4/4 beater tunes are the stuff superheroes are made of and Flash is no different! With Danielle Moore on vocals the two tracks are a heady blend of intoxicating beats, synth chords and a slap of soul to the grooves!

Left Minded - Empty Clips (Flash Atkins Mix) by paperecordings
Get it on Beatport
Left Minded are Neil G and Luke Alan, both from the HAWT Label/Crew in Los Angeles. Neil G has had well received releases on Motion Music and Luke signed his first track to SOWAT Music.
Empty Clips is deep dancefloor heavy house at it’s best. Electronic drums and analogue bass are wrapped round a warped vocal sample that gives the track a trippy feel.
Flash Atkins' remix of Empty Clips that is a piano anthem from the 90s parachuted in to the 00s. Disco bass, swinging drums and old skool keys…what’s not to like?
It will also be available on vinyl soon
Released by: PAPerecordings
Release/catalogue number: PAPD007
Release date: Apr 19, 2010

Buy It Here : http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/the-sweetshop-feat-caspa-codina/id359451147
Life loser, failed Super Hero and dis-reputable alcoholic Flash Atkins has managed to temporarily get his shit together and use his superpowers to create an amazing video for , The Sweetshop.
Completely unique, turns social networking on its head and in a world where all the ideas have been used up, this is a NEW ONE! It takes a sideways look at Facebook / YouTube / My Space / Twitter and filters it all through the seedy world of Flash Atkins.
The Sweetshop (Pick & Mix) has got lo-fi bass, crunchy drums and snapping synths all topped off with 70s crooner Caspa Codinas sleazy falsetto; its pop music with a knowing wink and impeccable 80s credentials.
