All roads lead to our new home.

So, since my departure from Dallas to Los Angeles, I've been disconnected from the www.myspace.com/hotflashparty. Those guys are doing a great job with the party. For those in Texas, look out for those kids.

From our camp, we're consolidating our efforts, streamlining our process and trimming the fat. Some of the articles and interviews featured here will be re-posted, some will be here in archived form. See you in the fray.

Pitchfork Article

Burned by Dragons

This is a direct repost from Raedawn (aka Crunc Tesla, aka DMC turntable master, aka the developer of the Turntablist Transcription Methodology) about being kicked out of the Dragons of Zynth

"Our last pic togther...taken by the Voice last saturday..
originally I tried to stand to the left of Bizza...I always do by best to let my homies shine...so I always try to play the back or the side when on stage or press shoots.....but this time the photographer told me to get in the center.....so I hunched down as much as possible....







Sup y'aaallll.......
...I cried on monday.
...due to internal conflicts that have nothing to do with the music....Dragons of Zynth have kicked me out of the band at a Zenith of sorts.....Summerstage was great...thanx to all who attended....

....to put it in perspective.
...For the past year, I've have given 10000% to my fellow Dragons.......I provided a place live for two of them....a rehersal space.......food....transportation.......the current avatar...videos....design....energy.....light...wisdom....and numerous recordings both digital and film...........and most importantly I gave my brothers my community. I'm deeply hurt about what's happened......yet I am still a Dragon...there are a lot of us.....more than just the five in the picture..........We are Fire breathing Flying seeing....a Voltron behemoth....out of the chaos fire and confusion.... Raedawn Phoenix has been born..........I am here to wish my 3 brothers who are currently opposed to me the best future in this world......Since I know that their decision spawned from confusion.....I pray the Goddess can bring us together again....."

-Rae
