Giant Step is thrilled to offer a download of A Band Called Flash’s EP, Mother Confessor. A project from artist, writer, and producer Jared Hines in collaboration with executive producers Ron Trent and Jonesy, the EP offers five dance floor-grabbing tracks inspired by the Jazz Funk elements of UK outfit Atomsfear and the alternative Disco sounds of Dinosaur L.

Dropping digitally on Friday, the vinyl edition has been a hit at record stores across the globe, selling out its first pressing in two days (it is now on its third). It was selected as #1 on London’s Love Vinyl weekly chart, topped the Disco Chart at Amsterdam’s Rush Hour for three weeks, and noted as a 2015 Best House 12 inch by Japan’s Disk Union.

Emerging from the suburban town of Maplewood, NJ, Jared Hines is a true singer/songwriter/musician. Having an avid record collector and DJ for a father, Jared was surrounded by a consistent mix of eclectic and obscure music from every genre imaginable.

At 14, he received his first bass guitar from a friend. Solely concentrating on the bass, he started making music, practicing little riffs and chords, staying up until dawn until he mastered the instrument. From there, Jared quickly acquired the skill for playing the guitar, drums, and keyboards.

Now, Jared is about to set the dance music world off its heels. Combining early 80s Electro Funk and the Synth-Pop/Punk sounds of the era with his own music sensibilities, he is creating some of the most refreshingly eclectic, modern electronic dance music.

A solo album, IGLC (Intergalactic Love Cloud), is also in the works under Jared Hines for an early 2016 release.
