DISCOGRAPHY TO ENERGY FLASH a.k.a. GENERATION ECSTASY

The expanded/updated 2008 edition of Energy Flash does not contain the Discography in the original 1998 version. Partly this was for reasons of space, but also because during the ten years since the book came out, the unevenness of the original discography became steadily more apparent, and the idea of rectifying that (let alone expanding it to cover the last decade) made me go all weak at the knees. I also felt that there is such a vast amount of thorough discographic material on the web nowadays -- Discogs, obviously, but just about every genre and sub-style of dance music has its unstintingly meticulous and comprehensive discographers at work -- that I felt it was redundant to include a discography, especially one so partial and slanted to my own tastes. Still, for those
those who feel the absence, here is the original discography.



^^^^^^^^^^^

Notes:

1/ Damn near every record mentioned in the text is included here, plus a good many that weren't but are nontheless either important or worth hearing. The discography is divided up according to the chapters of the book, and their corresponding genres/eras.

2/ Flipside or EP tracks are listed if i/ no A-side was given priority or ii/ if the track is especially excellent or notable. Specific mixes are noted if appropriate.

3/ Within any individual artist's oeuvre, the releases are listed in chronological order.

4/ Single artist albums, including anthologies of that artist's work, are listed alongside the single and EP releases; genre compilations and DJ mix-CD's are listed at the end of each chapter or subsection, and listed in order of excellence (the best, or most useful introduction to that genre, comes first).

5/ DJ names are alphabetized according to their second, defining name -- e.g. DJ Hype is under 'H'.

6/ If the artist name is a pseudonym or alter-ego, the artist's real name or most well-known alter-ego is listed in parentheses. Exceptions are when an artist is the focus of a subsection: then the whole oevre is listed together, with alter-egos in alphabetical order.

7/ The releases are not dated, unless the release date diverges drastically from the timespan of that chapter.

How funny. I was just about to start reading the 2008 edition for the first time and was going to get in touch about such a list. Ten pages in and my book/playlist prayers have been answered.

Just wanted to say, I read original release of energy flash way back in 1999, at a time when I really needed to know i wasn't the only person who cared about where the music had come from and was heading to. Meanwhile, other DJs and clubbers in the scene I was in were trying to cover their ignorance by implying it was somehow anal or even sacrilege to apply 'muso' journalism to acid techno/free party music. Perhaps it was that sense of righteousness that kept them playing the same 20 or so songs every weekend. Anyway, I loved your book, and it means something to me, and I wanted to say. So, Thanx once again, from JimiJokk
