about

It is with extreme pleasure that we announce the commercial release of the Soundtrack to the street dance documentary Flex is Kings. Written, performed and recorded by Jerome Begin and Chris Lancaster as Tranimal over the last 2 years, these 22 tracks celebrate the lives and artistry of the East Brooklyn Flex community and the large body of music they inspired. To capture their stories, their battles and imagination, Tranimal had to pull from all their influences. They built a dynamic journey for your ears through 808 kicks and nasty bass lines, smoky smooth guitar, old school hip hop, Electronica, cello and synth duets deep in the pocket, soaring strings and crushing synths. Driven and propelled by Begin's signature TraniBeats these tracks are designed to lay down the groove for you this summer. Whether you’re a flex dancer, looking to rock out... or just TraniCurious. Please enjoy our labor of love!

Track titles are tributes to the names of the incredible dancers.

Jerome and Chris are devout improvisors and lovers of technology. Tranimal music often originates from musical and technological challenges they create for themselves,which bears strange musical fruit. Eat it! ... more
