New Music From Flevans, Andrea Scala, Fanflures Brass Band

Flevans - Accumulate

Gathering up all his favourite styles - funk, soul, disco, house, quirky pop and cinematic sounds, multi-instrumentalist Flevans has created his latest studio album "Accumulate", that draws from all but is still undeniably his own. Working with a crack team of collaborators he’s served up another absolute gem of a record that is more lyrical than any of his work before. One of the stars of the last album Laura Vane (MJ Cole, Cee Lo Green) returns to the fold to front four tracks with her versatile and powerful vocal. Label mate, Smoove & Turrell front man, and all-round Geordie extraordinaire John Turrell also gets to flex his tones on the wonderfully upbeat northern soul gem "Silly Games". Plus there are two unique cuts with the mysterious Scooby Jones, a man who has worked and toured with acts as diverse as Ed Sheeran, The Black Eyed Peas, Craig David and more. Really, there’s no gamble here, just another killer LP - Flevans has speculated, so you can accumulate!

Andrea Scala - Coming Back, Leaving Again

Italian drummer Andrea Scala  wrote and produced the Coming Back, Leaving Again album in Italy with pianist, arranger and producer Fabio Raponi (Dionne Warwick, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of London, musician and arranger for Sony Music, BMG, RCA, etc.). Collaborators on the album included talented Italian and international musician friends, such as the talented Roberto Tarenzi (he played in the studio and live with Dave Liebman, Max Roach, John Patitucci, James Cammack), bassist Francesco Puglisi (Randy Brecker, Sarah Jane Morris, Mina, Fabrizio Bosso, etc.), The guitarist Nicola Costa (Ennio Morricone, Nicola Piovani, Darryl Jones, etc.), The guitarist Manlio Maresca (Neo with the recording of Steve Albini, Andymusic, etc.), among talented jazz musicians. The musical style of the album is modern jazz/alternative/avant garde.

Fanflures Brass Band – La Rumeur D’or

It’s the 2nd Album release for the french Brass Band mixing Jazz - Funk - Hip Hop and Swing into a new highly energetic album. After their first album "Dans ta Face!" (2016), with pure Funk New Orleans, spotted by les inrocks Web, in a traditional way referred as Hot 8 brass band or Rebirth brass band, les FFLRES Brass Band went digging into more actual sound with a cover of the french band "Saian Supa crew" for a Latin - Ragga Brass Band cover which got some succes with brass band lover (100 000 stream on spotify, and radio air plays). For 2019, the band goes further into this direction for the 2nd album with more compositions and a more actual sound with a lot of different influences, like swing, hip hop, pop and funk.
