It would be fair to say that UK multi-instrumentalist and producer Flevans had a bit of a renaissance with his 2019 album “Part Time Millionaire“. Accumulating numerous radio spins across the BBC and many other national stations throughout Europe, it marked a return to form and completely vindicated his new approach of collaborating with vocalists and moving to a more song-based writing approach and away from his earlier beat-heavy production style.
Having hit a rich vein of creativity, it didn’t take long for Flevans to return to the studio and cook up what is looking to be his most accomplished work yet in the form of 6th studio album “Accumulate”, scheduled for release next year on Jalapeno Records.
And the first offering from that album is a real pop gem! Teaming up once again with soul songstress Laura Vane (MJ Cole, The Streets and Cee Lo Green) the pair offer a little nod to Chaka Khan for the bouncing and groove infused pop bubble of “Mr Right”. Prince-style harmonies weave between spoken word sections and a sensational top line from Ms. Vane, as Flevans plies his playful and funky production style expertly as always. Electro influences and dancefloor synths line up alongside horns and slap bass to create a jam that everyone can’t help but bump to!
Adding more bounce to the ounce the single also includes a brand new, killer instrumental track “Speculate” – here Flevans goes back to basics with this one, mixing up gritty percussion, drums loops and vocal samples over a four to floor groove – guaranteed dance-floor heat!
