"I remember the two records I learned how to mix with: David Bowie's “Fashion”, and Edwin Birdsong's “Rapper Dapper Snapper”. I had to mix those records for weeks, with Juan, like, in my ass, every time I fucked up!'" --Derrick May cited in Energy Flash (1998) by Simon Reynolds

Energy Flash: A Journey Through Rave Music and Dance Culture (1998), alternatively titled Generation Ecstasy, is a music history book by Simon Reynolds which was updated several times.

Its topic is drug culture and its relationship to and effect on music. Reynolds traces the effects of drugs on the ups and downs of the rave scene, and music by the likes of Bandulu. The title of the book echoes Joey Beltram's single "Energy Flash".

The book was updated in January 2008. It coined terms such as neurofunk.
