I have been told that the Casio FZ-1 was used on this track. I was told it is what he warped the bassline with. I could be wrong though because info is mostly fallible.

To Joey Beltram he was creating a darker, edgier form of House when he crafted Energy Flash, which ultimately split the electronic community's idea of House, creating a new musical discourse that paved a path all the way to the shores of Europe, pioneering a new movement in "Techno." Fantastic track and a must for any collector.

Even non-electronic listeners can appreciate a track like this.

@Scott_Forbes this track used the TR-707, not the 909.
Anyway, was wondering if anyone out there knows what synths he used for this track. Particularly the deep bass synth droning low in the mix and the main lead synth. The strings sound is very Juno and I'm sure there is a Korg Choir in there too. Any idea where the ecstacy sample came from ? and the decending string sample? you know the same sample from Orbitals Chime.

One funny side note about this record. People used to argue if this was the 1st song to say "ecstacy" in it. Its a great song with a low filtered flowing bassline that seems like its pitchbended in the sequence. Also has a great TR-909 hihats that are slightly distorted so they blend (a trick alot of early plus 8 records use too). Another piece of trivia about Beltram: He owns a Waldorf Wave synthesizer which is about $10,000. Look up a photo of the Waldorf Wave online and you will be amazed at how cool it looks!

This is one of the seminal Techno tracks it changed the face of Techno taking it from Detroit to Germany where the european Techno scene was already starting to get that harder more agressive edge. Energy Flash just ignited producers to create bigger/better/harder Techno with every release just to try to catch up with it.
