Flashpoint feat. Grandmaster Flash/DJ DebonairHip-Hop
Where are we? What day is it? Pardon our confusion, but when we heard Grandmaster Flash was coming back for the second installment of his Flashpoint residency at Anthem, we ran straight to YouTube and fell into an Internet K-hole filled with wobbly dubs of board tapes from the Flash’s earliest performances, and we just came up for air. There’s a reason he’s a Grandmaster — that dude has been slaying the one and twos since the beginning. Even on those early tapes — we’re talking pre-“Message,” pre-commercially available hip-hop — Flash’s skills are still light years ahead of the curve. His soundscapes and grooves have been jacked by pretty much every artist in the genre, and he is the greatest DJ of all time. Really, it’s Flash’s world — we’re all just living in it.
