A2. 12 Apostles
B1. The Greeting Song (Rephrase Remix)
B2. Cold Hands (Lost Idol Remix)

Press Release :
Two year's since his successful debut album and 3 sold-out 12s on Brighton's hugely successful Tru Thoughts label, Flevans returns with two unmistakeable cuts from his anticipated new album, 'Unfabulous'. These releases see Flevans teaming up with London's Jack To Phono label who, with a string of successful releases in 2006, look set to conquer the world in 07!

The two tracks here showcase Flevans' much improved production and are a real flavour of things to come - 'Cold Hands' starts out shuffling and moody before breaking into a dancefloor shaking, electro bass driven, party-starting monster! AA side, '12 Apostles' is another Flevans classic in the making; funky breaks, horns and guitars combine to make this a proper funk workout. Both tracks showcase Flevans' new love of live instrumentation, with Flevans playing all keys, bass and guitar himself.

The flipside sees Australia's rising star, Rephrase and the co-founder of Brighton's superb Cookshop label, Lost Idol providing 2 superb remixes. First up is Rephrase's re-work of album opener, 'The Greeting Song' - keeping the hip-hop feel of the original whilst adding his own distinct production values, Rephrase rolls up his sleeves and throws down another floor-mover. Lost Idol takes 'Cold Hands' into uncharted territory, bringing the tempo down and turning the tune into something altogether more beautiful...

Flevans's second album, 'Unfabulous' is out this summer on Jack To Phono.
