Mr. Flash "Midnight Blue (Jon Convex Remix)"
The pairing of Parisian future-funk specialist Mr. Flash and UK producer (and member of the innovative Instra:mental duo) Jon Convex is a somewhat unexpected one, but the latter's remix of "Midnight Blue" is certainly hard to argue with. On it, Convex (a former XLR8R podcast contributor) wraps the original track's vocals around a robust rhythmic base that melds together a heavy house bounce with a broad helping of space-age percussion. Furthermore, the rework finds ways to fit pieces of Mr. Flash's original in an airy space above the remix's chugging rhythmic programming, which maintains a propulsive pace across the track's five-plus-minute run. Convex's remix is part of the Midnight Blue EP package (the track having originally appeared on Mr. Flash's Sonic Crusader LP earlier this year), out now via Ed Banger/Because Music.
