Label: Jalapeno Records

Flevans is back with his 5th studio LP and the release sees him furthering his trajectory towards song-led compositions.

And as you’d expect if you are familiar with this man’s work already - there’s more funk and soul crammed into the record than you can shake a stick at. But being a wonderfully social chap - he’s also extended a courteous invitation to some of his favourite chums, with the record boasting more collaborations than ever…

The amazing Antipodean - Elliott Cole, the pocket rocket - Laura Vane (MJ Cole, Cee Lo Green), soul songstress - Sarah Scott and gospel powerhouse - Izo FitzRoy all lend their considerable vocal talents to the record whilst Flevans does his thing both in front of and behind the mixing desk.

Highlights include the crunchy drums and bouncing guitar funk on ‘Invisible’, the soulful and stuttering bass-led strutter - ‘It Just Goes’ and Elliott Cole’s heart pouring vocal performance on the modern ‘lighters-in-the-air’ piano ballad ‘15,000 Words’. Coincidentally those are also the singles… What are the odds of that?

Honestly, the calibre of material Flevans showcases here is so high this list could easily contain any of the album tracks. It’s a well-crafted LP that displays his prowess in both songwriting and production alongside a real artistic development away from his earlier sample-based works. His playful character and style from those early years still shine through though in this energetic, fun and consistently interesting listen.

He sums the record and his approach up best with his own words: “The title ‘Part-Time Millionaire’ is a reflection of where I'm at right now - I’ve juggled writing this album with trying being the best dad I can to my two young kids - both of those things make me incredibly happy, but it’s a difficult balance and you don’t always feel you are able to devote yourself to either as much as you would like! I guess the title reflects how little time we have to do all the things we want but also how many positive things we can achieve!”
