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!

Tom Findlay (Groove Armada) - stop the car mix - odd but interesting

Murray Richardson - Love this, always loved this & love the remixes too!

Jonny Miller (Jus’ Listen) - Flash is a loser but this tune is a winner! Love it, silky disco for silky discos

Beats in Space - liking the DATG mix

Henri Kohn - Wooo wooo, nice one, feelin it big ups

Joakim - Interesting mix by DATG, unexpected.

Martin Brew - DATG mix is a winner...suitably wonky enough for it!

Left Minded - Empty Clips (Flash Atkins Mix) on PAPERecordings

Left Minded - Empty Clips (Flash Atkins Mix) by paperecordings

Get it on Beatport

or Itunes

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

Flash Atkins in the Creative Review for The Sweetshop Video

The Sweetshop - 2D VersionD version of The Sweetshop video, no specs requires and full screen for the full WTF experience

Buy It Here :

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.
