NEW PROJECT & NEW ALBUM OUT SOON!
Flat Five Syndicate is a new raw, indie-tinged Blues Rock band that came out of songwriter and guitarist Razl’s head as a daydream, imagining merging Derek Trucks with Dan Auerbach.
Downtown and Smells like trouble are the first two tracks of this new experiment. They have a dirty and greasy blues feel, balanced guitars full of fuzz sounds and the wonderful voice of a somewhat indie vocalist.
«Spanish guitarist Raúl Huelves (a.k.a. Razl) leads a power trio featuring bassist extraordinaire Bryan Beller. Coaxing super-seductive tones from both electric and acoustic guitars sans pick, Razl struts and grooves hard throughout, as compelling riffs, clever rhythmic twists, atypical harmonic touches, and an imaginative use of effects further flavor this savory sonic gumbo.»

«I just had the pleasure of listening to Razl´s latest album, «Microscopic». I cannot think of a better use of your time than to listen to this guitarist play some of the most infectious grooves being heard on this planet.»
★ Walter Kolosky (music journalist, author of Follow your heart-John McLaughlin song by song) ★
«Razl’s second album, Microscopic, is a real step forward from his impressive debut, Rotonova. His style hasn’t changed radically (although this time out it’s a «highly addictive guitar-and-beyond ridden groove-a-thon»), but Microscopic is not only stripped down instrumentally (basically a power trio album), but Razl’s tunes are both tighter and more focused and he seems to be developing a stronger individual voice as a composer.»
