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!


  1. Agree, heard this track a few times 15 years ago. Never forgot it. Happy to have just found it again on youtube. This tune is too good to be unknown! Some movie or video game needs to pick it up so Mr Fowlkes get's his due credit.

    1. 100% agreed! Happy to hear you found this gem again after all that time :->
