Flash 89 - Elixir EP
21 May 2021
Following on from the release of his latest heater ‘Elixir’, and having just touched down back home in Australia from the UK, producer and DJ Flash 89 now delivers his full-powered Elixir EP featuring the title track, a remix from Italian duo The Deepshakerz and a brand new single, ‘Lovetone’. It’s a body of work which demonstrates Flash 89’s trajectory as the fresh sound of house from Down Under, taking his sound to the world. Elixir delivers a fastidious combination of forward-thinking electronic tones and expressions purpose built for discerning dance floors of all shapes and sizes, with an underlying theme of body movement.
The EP came together during peak pandemic, as everything fell into place for Flash. ‘Elixir’ explores that point in time where your daily thoughts about that someone finally stop. Flash states: “Coming out of a tough relationship, there’s no bitterness, no ill will; just that moment where I don't think about you anymore.” Sonically it's a piano laden driving house groover built for the dance floor, paired lyrically with the sentiment of moving on from a past relationship.
With ‘Elixir’ already in sets from John Summit, Dombresky, Cat Dealerz and mounting triple j specialist support from the likes of The Aston Shuffle, it’s proving to be the medicine we all need.
Micro Sonatore and Domy Berardino make up the Italian duo The Deepshakerz, who take on remix duties of ‘Elixir’. Known for a perfect blend of various musical styles from vocal house, afro-beats, throwback tech and Chicago style, their music has led to them gaining international DJ support from the likes of Groove Armada, David Morales, Loco Dice, Dubfire, Riva Starr, Mark Knight and the establishment of their own record label, Safe Music. The Deepshakerz have earned a global fanbase through releases with the highly reputable labels Sola, DFTD, Incorrect and Club Sweat. They have also been asked to remix legendary artists such as Marshall Jefferson, Ultra Natè and Marlon D. Having them remix the track into a dark and moody journey, Flash 89 said, “I’m such a fan boy of those guys, their production is sick, I can’t wait for it to tear up the clubs.”
Having spent the past few years in the UK, Flash 89 has cemented himself as one of house music’s emerging new breed, showcasing a swag of dancefloor energy across imprints like Solotoko, Lapsus, Non Stop, Safe, Abode, etcetc, and Sweat It Out. These audio excursions giving him the nod of approval from the likes of Jamie Jones, Solardo, Gorgon City, Danny Howard, Detlef, De La Swing, Dennis Ferrer, Eli Brown, Huxley, Mark Knight, Matt.Joe, Raffa FL, Richy Ahmed and Sonny Fodera.
