The Ed Banger veteran will release his first LP through the label in June.
Mr. Flash will drop his debut album on June 2nd.
The Frenchman has the honour of being one of the artists behind the very first release on Paris institution Ed Banger—"Radar Rider" back in 2003—and he's kept the relationship alive over the years, releasing a handful of EPs and a mix CD. Most of his work in the ensuing decade has been behind the scenes, however, as a producer for Mos Def and Sebastian Tellier as well as remixer for Kanye West, among other highlights. Sonic Crusader is said to combine a number of his influences, including new wave and industrial, astral jazz, '80s rock and, of course, hip-hop. The LP features a number of collaborations, including first single "Number One"—which you can stream and download below—featuring rappers Cities Aviv, Action Bronson and Oh No.
