The Last Battle

A 2 track electro-funk single (8m 57s) — released September 2nd 2016 on Art Edit


The Majic-12 were formed as an imaginary and legendary breakdance crew from Detroit USA. The original releases even sited that they were recorded at Decoy Studios Detroit MI, but this was all part of the fiction and were in fact all recorded by Scott E. Hodgson, Electronic Composer and co-founder of Beau Monde records, at Art Edit Studio. Inspired by what might be considered the earliest attempt to revisit the short lived electro genre since the 80's by Scott Edwards "Robot:Robot" track on the Man Machine EP. The Majic-12 name was used to fuel Scott's interest in the exploration of both retro and forward looking tracks to fulfil the destiny he felt the genre deserved, before it was mutated into and overtaken by early hip-hop.


Part of the Art Edit Studio Master Tapes series.
