Slow Techno : Eddie 'Flashin' Fowlkes - T.M.F 61

true people album cover
eddie fowlkesGoing way back in time on this one but what a tune from 1996!

On a mission to spread the word about this track. 'T.M.F 61' has only one video upload on YouTube, less than 200 plays and no comments - that is criminal! This is a proper underground classic for the heads. Featured on the brilliant 'True People: The Detroit Techno Album' alongside many classics. If you do not own that album, get a copy in!

This is brilliant melodic jolly upbeat electronic music. Not too many pieces of music out there that sound quite like this - really uplifting. The range of sounds is brilliant from flute like hits, to funky keys to sparkly synths over a cool breakbeat. Eddie is the 'GodFather of Techno Soul' - a detroit legend. Check his music!
