In a handful of years, Anthony Naples has consistently built and increased his reputation as a unique, underground artist hailing from NYC while simultaneously co-founding the influential Incienso record label, which has become home to artists such as Call Super and DJ Python. As a producer, his early work was associated with the burgeoning outsider house scene in the United States and has diversified in recent years to include Ambient, Techno, Deep House, and as well as experimental styles while keeping his attention to the dancefloor.
His crowning glory to date, Body Pill, was released in 2015 on FourTet’s Text label and after a number of cult EPs on Miter Saturday Night and The Trilogy Tapes, his reputation soared as someone to take notice of. His music has received attention from The Guardian, The New York Times, and Resident Advisor, the latter of which placed his debut single "Mad Disrespect" and album "Body Pill" in their best of the year lists. He is joined by Black Rave Culture in the Club Level.
DJ’s and producers James Bangura, Amal, and DJ Nativesun make up the collective and label, Black Rave Culture. This marks their debut at Flash.
Also making their Flash debut on this night are NYC-based trio named Earth Beat.
Earth Beat is the collective musical efforts of Greg Droggitis (Gee Dee), Latane Hughes (Fundido), and Extra Andrew (Extra Water). What began as a radio show broadcast out of Brooklyn eventually expanded to a party hosting the likes of Jex Opolis, Millos Kaiser, Daniel T and more. Earth Beat are now residents at Good Room in Brooklyn and are coming off their sold out weekender in upstate NYC at Glen Falls House which hosted sets from Ivan Berko, Lloyd, Universal Cave and more.
