Press Release :
Jack To Phono and Flevans Projects are proud to present the second 7" from Mooch. As one of the stalwarts of Brighton's renowned Tru Thoughts label, Flevans released 3 successful 12"s, following these up with 2004's debut 'Make New Friends' album. His music has featured on compilations such as 'Electric Soul' (The Unabombers), 'Anotherlatenight' (Kid Loco), Ministry Of Sound's 'Chillout Sessions' and Ninja Tune's Solid Steel (Bonobo), and has seen him remix the likes of Dr Rubberfunk, Jon Kennedy and most recently Australia's Rephrase to great effect.

Following the 'Make New Friends' release, Flevans took some time out to hone his DJ'ing skills, entertaining crowds at The Big Chill, Friends & Family in Tokyo and Turntables in New York among others. He also used this time to sharpen his live skills, playing bass with Backini's live band – since debuting at Glastonbury, the band have since recorded live sessions for Radio One and another at Abbey Road's infamous Studio Two.

So it was about time to take this experience back into the studio, and get on with recording and releasing more music – in 2005, Flevans hooked up with the up and coming Jack To Phono label to release his debut 7" under the name Mooch – The Mooch album is now completed, and features contributions from Backini, Dr Rubberfunk, JFB and Johnny Tarr (Blackgrass, Backini Live). This tasty 7" features two tracks from the forthcoming album; 'Sounds Good', with it's infectious rolling bassline and killer vocal hooks, and 'Pickinit' a real head-nodder; a laid-back funk track dripping with wah wah guitars.

The debut album is scheduled for release towards the end of this year, with another single in the pipeline, as well as some very tasty remixes. But for now, sit back and enjoy the first Mooch release of what promises to be a very exciting 2006...
