The Get Down "Seek Those Who Fan Your Flames" Review - AVClub

AVClub: Throughout the first half of “Seek Those Who Fan Your Flames,” we get several exhilarating sequences involving Shaolin Fantastic’s tutelage in DJing. It begins with Grandmaster Flash giving him and the other members of Fantastic Four Plus One a crayon, which holds “the key to his quick-mix theory.” After many joints and a lot of waiting around, Ezekiel finally realizes the crayon’s purpose: to mark that special spot in a record’s groove—the moment that, when brought back to the break and repeated, makes the crowd go wild. Every subsequent scene builds upon this revelation as Shao hones his turntable skills, applying mathematics, calmness, and even a bit of symbolic time-traveling to his craft until he’s finally on his way to becoming a bona fide mixmaster.

The story is too old to be commented.
