Editorial Review

Frequent soul scene sideman Alexei and longtime poetry circuit staple Komplex formed a duo last year after they crossed paths frequently. Now as Fly Gypsy, they've quickly made up for lost time with a couple videos, some buzzworthy singles and a solid show steeped in nu-soul and a nimble balance between spoken word and emceeing. Kom handles the rhymes while Alexei juggles decks, bass, guitar and keys at Liv tonight.
