SONG PREMIERE/INTERVIEW: FREEKBASS FEATURES TURKUAZ SINGER SAMMI GARETT ON FUTURE-FUNK TUNE “GOTTA GET BACK TO YOU”
- GLIDE MAGAZINE, May 24, 2019
Today Glide is excited to premiere “Gotta Get Back To You”, a healthy dose of 70s future-funk that is as reminiscent of the Fatback Band as it is Patti LaBelle. With Sammi Garett lending a brassy, disco-esque vocal style, the song is a quick-thumping journey through Freekbass’s endlessly funky and psychedelic universe. While there is little doubt that Freekbass takes a precise approach to his instrument, he also manages to capture a loose, in-the-pocket groove that invites dancing while still sounding proggy.
Freekbass, The TVD First Date and Premiere of “R U Ready”
TVD is delighted to be premiering “R U Ready,” the current single from Freekbass’ forthcoming and first full-length vinyl release All The Way This. All The Way That. It’s one serious slice of retro-neo-funk. (Right, we just created a genre.) And if its heavy pocket and deep groove doesn’t have you moving and nodding along, friend—you’re dead. Our recommendation: play this one loud.
