Eddie 'Flashin' Fowlkes - Black Technosoul
One of the seemingly lesser know originators of techno, Eddie 'Flashin' Fowlkes, is the self-proclaimed godfather of 'techno soul'. Growing up on a healthy diet of Motown and soul and receiving his first mixer in 1977, Eddie will go onto recording his first single "Goodbye Kiss" on Metroplex in 1986. This album, and along with many of his others, were released on the ever-so-famous Tresor out of Berlin, this being the third. Black Technosoul was such a pleasant surprise the first time I listened to it with its high energy, helping the explain his nickname 'Flashin'.
