“Once upon a time there was a little black boy named Rodney who possessed the mic, rumbled in the concrete jungle and had the will to beat the pill, amongst other things.” - Pete Nice’s foreword for Dirty
Drum and bass pioneer MC Flux is to release a book cataloguing his history as an upcoming musician on the electronic scene, whilst leading a life full of hooliganism and drug addiction.
Growing up in Croydon, MC Flux and his associates experienced a gritty underworld of drugs, football violence and institutionalised racism, catalogued with brutal honesty over the space of 20 chapters. Retelling his story in an informal “pub banter” setting Carl "MC Flux" Thomas pulls no punches when he invites the reader to witness his struggles with police brutality, substance abuse and rival football firms, which he would one day overcome to become a pivotal figure in the emerging drum & bass scene.
MC Flux’s story is one of rehabilitation and vindication. Since 1993, he has toured all six continents in front of crowds of up to 40,000 as one of the first professional MCs of the drum & bass movement, having previously worked with labels such as Ram Records and Moondance. In 1996 he founded his own clothing company, Inta-Natty alongside fellow South-Londoners Pete Nice (co-author of the book), Face, Killer, Inch, Juice, Danny B, Grooverider, Bailey and Fabio, all of whom are mentioned in the book.
Well we can't wait to read this book. It is on order!
