The â€˜27 Devilsâ€™ 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 â€˜27 Devilsâ€™ promos were out the door, the remixes started pouring in. With such a great array of artists injecting Flevansâ€™ unshakable dancefloor-directed pop/funk productions with a dose of other flavours, from deep disco to 2-step, â€˜The 28th Devilâ€™ is being released on CD to get those alternative takes on the tracks out there to the fans and DJs.
