Press Release :
This digital download single is a perfect 2 track snapshot of the upcoming album from Flevans, entitled '27 Devils'. A melting pot of styles and sounds, glorious songs and dancefloor bombs, the stunning album sees multi-instrumentalist Flevans going totally sample-free and taking the plunge into full live instrumentation.

The first track on this single is the irresistible and unshakably catchy "Hold On" featuring Sarah Scott; the powerful and unique vocals of guest star Scott combine with Flevans' funky guitar riffage to dazzling effect, for an attention-grabbing slice of perfectly crafted modern pop. And as an extra bonus, the instrumental and a capella cuts of "Hold On" are also up for grabs.

Next up is a slice of characteristically quirky Flevans magic in the shape of the dancefloor-delighting "Hold No Water", which has been tried and tested and emerged as a firm favourite among clubbers, kicking off with a cheeky enough intro and building up the layers into a full-on floorfiller. "Hold No Water" is also one of a few tracks on the album to boast a vocal hook sung by Flevans himself.

Flevans was originally one of the first artists on the Tru Thoughts roster way back in the early days. Attracting the label's attention initially through his innate dancefloor sensibility and talent for a tasty hook, he produced a series of great 12"s between 2001 and 2004, which culminated in the well-received 2004 album 'Make New Friends'. He has spent the intervening years DJing at some of the world's best parties including Turntables on the Hudson, the MTV Cannes Film Festival Party and The Big Chill - not to mention releasing his second album, 'Unfabulous', on Jack To Phono records in 2007. In 2008, ready for a new challenge, he lent his bass playing skills to acclaimed Brighton band Backini, with whom he played at Glastonbury Festival and laid down a Maida Vale session for Rob da Bank (BBC Radio 1). His experiences in the band re-ignited his love for the buzz of playing live. Running with this inspiration, Flevans opted to ditch the thousands of records he had relied on for samples in the past and exercise the full reaches of his considerable talent, composing and playing every note on '27 Devils' himself. He ventured further into uncharted territory by singing on a few tracks as well, and the uniquely beguiling guest vocalists Sarah Scott and Shona Foster each bring their very own magic. Flevans now finds himself back in the Tru Thoughts stable with a new three album deal in his pocket and by far his most accomplished work to date on the horizon.

An album that simply demands to be heard, '27 Devils' is an addictive listen from a major talent -full of surprises and bursting at the seams with catchy pop hits in the making. ALBUM OUT 18TH MAY.
