The Flexitones debut album 'Joyrider' is the latest offering from Twisted Records sub-label Backroom Beats. The much anticipated collaboration between Eat Static's Merv Peppler and Will White of the Propellerheads couldn't have come at a better time as both the artists have been gagging for the opportunity to produce music other than that with a banging 4/4 beat. This is certainly an album of difference and seductive grooves, fusing together the countless influences both Will and Merv have had.
The album is of epic lounge proportions covering laidback beats, modern dubs, and chilled funky grooves giving both Will and Merv the opportunity, after many an intensive studio session, to express the various styles of music that both artists have been heavily influenced by and longing to express for themselves.
The combination of trip hop beats, accelerating jazzy grooves, latino funk and cruisin' chilled out vibes on this album has managed to cover all the angles and leaves no stone unturned in respect to what can be done with the backroom beats. Released on November 2005
