BAMM.tv Best Albums Of The Year: The Flashbulb, Vandella

Posted on: No Comments

We asked some of the great acts who have performed for BAMM.tv to pick their favorite albums from the year gone by. Today it’s the turn of Benn Jordan (aka The Flashbulb) and Vandella …

THE FLASHBULB

BAMM.tv Presents: The Flashbulb – “Virtuous Cassette” (live at SXSW) from BAMM.tv on Vimeo.

1. The Future Sound Of London – Environment Five

When I was a teenager, I was probably listening to FSOL more often than not, so maybe I’m biased here. Environment Five is the apex of what these 2 musicians are capable of. Everything is gentle and unpredictable, no beat “drops”, no melody reaches a climax, no idea is illegal, and sounds that would seem cheesy everywhere else are welcomed on this canvas. Dazed And Confused era guitars dance with wind chimes while relaxing waterfalls give way to something ominous and terrifying in the distance. Nothing short of brilliant.

Bamm.tv Featured Artist: The Flashbulb

Posted on: 3 Comments

Meet electronic mastermind Benn Jordan. He’s a man of many different names, collecting pseudonyms the way a hyperactive 90s kid collected Pokemon. You may also have heard him referred to as (deeeeeep breath now) Acidwolf, CHR15TPUNCH3R, DJ ASCII, Dr. Lefty, Dysrythmia, FlexE, Human Action Network, Lucid32, rapemachine, rnd16, 66x or Q-Bit.

For the purposes of our Featured Artist celebration, however, we fixing our beady eye on Benn’s most well-known alterego: The Flashbulb.

Benn is particularly direct when it comes to the origins of Flashbulb. “In the mid-70’s,” he recounts, “Lee Jordan and Denise Richardson met while vacationing in Virginia. Many sexual instances later Denise noticed she was more nauseated than usual. 9 months later the band was formed, but did not record music for another 14 years.” In other words: it’s just him. Flashbulb is a one-man operation, and Benn is the brains and talent behind it.

BAMM TV: ‘We Are Alone In A City’, The Flashbulb

Posted on: No Comments

Benn Jordan is a man of many aliases: he’s performed under the titles of (deep breath) Acidwolf, CHR15TPUNCH3R, DJ ASCII, Dr. Lefty, Dysrythmia, FlexE, Human Action Network, Lucid32, MC Flashbulb, rapemachine, rnd16, 66x and Q-Bit. Last – and most certainly not least – there’s The Flashbulb, his most widely-known identity, and the one which has brought his trademark breakcore sound to a loyal and enthusastic audience.

The Flashbulb recently blew away the crowd at the Photosynthesis 4.0 festival, and BAMM was there to capture all the action. Enjoy this exclusive performance of ‘We Are Alone In A City’.
