Flevans – Reach Out [LOA Records]

Regard for the passing hiatus, he is unexcelled known & much loved for his Flevans supplies, and it has to be said that new album 'A Stiff Opinion' is fair up there with some of his most appropriate. What has eternally set Flevans separate from other producers is his skills to thrash tempos at the decline of a hat & press it seem uncomplicated (safe keeping us, it's not), then think up splendid soundcapes that be subjected to the adeptness to snatch you somewhere else. A music work veteran, there's not much that this man hasn't done – sold a stackload of records (on prominent indie Tru Thoughts), DJ'd across the Terra (3 US tours, 1 each in Japan & Australia & countless trips to Europe), had his music second-hand in TV shows & adverts far & deviant (Nokia, BSkyB, DFS & ESPN to renown but a few), flush with releasing a side-plan album of garage electronica for Jalapeno Records (secondary to the moniker Aotoa). Nowhere is this safer illustrated than on the fully extraordinary keep up with 'A Reserved Judgement' – heavenly musicianship (did we in that he plays a few instruments?), vast hooks and absent vocal samples take place together to bring up a morsel of music that's fully laudable of its' championship footpath repute. New celibate 'Reach Out' is a blistering funk-filled pop up again to contour – a dilly bass solidus, fatback drums & catchy horns link to conceive an uptemo ear-worm & guaranteed dancefloor honour! 'One For The Means' wraps things up brilliantly, Blaxploitation-fashion! LOA Records is extremely proud to remaining the cardinal new apparatus in 7 years by Brighton-based beatsmith Flevans (or Nigel Evans to his doctor). What more do you necessary? It's been 7 years but he's finance, and go to his paramount! Entrancing no prisoners from the start, it's a mountainous slice of tempestuous & genial dancefloor funk with tremendous drums, obstinate wah-wah guitar & titanic horns.
