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.
Freekbass Lets Loose ‘Knuckle Sandwich’
“Knuckle Sandwich” is superb, illustrating the sonic heft of the Cincinnati sound, while simultaneously delivering the raw organic textures of beefy funk." - Randall Radic, medium.com
