Flaunt was born in the 80’s when a bass note sexually collided with a keytar synthesizer. Fully grown from birth, he travelled back in time to the mid-to-late 70’s and began his formative years there\then. His early days were spent wafting around conservatoriums, underground concert venues and above ground ones as well. Realising that he was like the kid in that Bruce Willis film who could see dead people (except he was music, not a ghost,) Flaunt helped deaf people feel the bass. Eventually lightening struck an experimental cyborg he was tutoring and he was fully anthropomorphised into the part robot part real boy you know and love, where he has continued pushing his brand of beatery in a less ethereal fashion.
How did you become involved?
