The 28th Devil
Released: 13th Dec, 2009
Label: Tru Thoughts
With a serious level of party bang for your buck, this 13-track companion piece to the original album features reworks by the likes of dancefloor-rocking label-mates Hint and Azaxx Regal (Wiseguys/Bronx Dogs); Vono Box (Jazz & Milk); and serial collaborator, remixer and ‘next-big-thing’ Lack Of Afro; as well as a handful of inspired Flevans remixes of tracks by other artists including rising soul sensation Kylie Auldist.
The ‘27 Devils’ album, which features the lush vocals of Sarah Scott and Shona Foster, as well as Flevans himself with a few well-placed vocal hooks, received glowing reviews and DJ reactions, praising its upbeat and idiosyncratic club beats and hook-laden songs. As soon as the ‘27 Devils’ promos were out the door, the remixes started pouring in. With such a great array of artists injecting Flevans’ unshakable dancefloor-directed pop/funk productions with a dose of other flavours, from deep disco to 2-step, ‘The 28th Devil’ is being released on CD to get those alternative takes on the tracks out there to the fans and DJs.
Flevans is heading off on a DJ tour of Australia alongside Lanu (aka Lance Ferguson of The Bamboos) and Kylie Auldist. in early 2010, and recording a collaborative EP with Lanu while he’s out there. More new Flevans material is also in the pipeline for the not too distant future. The ‘27 Devils’ album and “Hold On” // “Hold No Water” single are out now on Tru Thoughts.
