Going into 2015 Freek has a lot of things on the table. He just released his next album , “Everybody’s Feelin’ Real”, which is produced by Duane Lundy (My Morning Jacket’s Jim James/Ben Sollee) and includes P-Funk/Rubberband keyboardist Razor Sharp Johnson, horn man Skerik, and Trey Anastasio Band vocalist/trumpet Jennifer Hartswick . Also, he was a part of this year’s London Bass Guitar Show in the UK giving a master class and performing. Plus he will be doing extensive touring with his mainstay funk group, “Freekbass & The Bump Assembly”. (from freekbass.com)

Cincy Groove: How does your latest album compare to your previous releases? did you do anything differently? special guests?

Freekbass: very excited about this new album because of the way Producer Duane Lundy had us record it. We set up in a tight circle, with my full bass amp at the full volume I play at live, and recorded all of the bed tracks altogether. No overdubs on initial bed tracks. If someone made a mistake or didn’t like the way they played on the track, we started all over together. So what went to track was the same energy, feel, and vibe as you would have from a live performance. As well as drummers Chip Wilson, and Big Bamn who both play with me live, we had original Rubberband and P-Funk keyboardist Razor Sharp Johnson (who will be playing with us at Southgate tomorrow night) on most of the tracks. Also, Jennifer Hartswick from Trey Anastasio Band, and horn madman Skerik join in on many of the tracks. Read more

With organic, bass-centric sounds mixing with forward-looking soundscapes, Everybody’s Feelin’ Real finds Freekbass bridging the gap between classic funk and the future of the groove. Aided by the vision of producer and engineer Duane Lundy (My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Ben Sollee), this album lives in the rawness of the earth while traveling to the future of worlds yet to be discovered.

Inspired by the inventiveness and massive sonics of David Bowie, the ten-songs on Everybody’s Feelin’ Real celebrate a sound while simultaneously pushing the envelope of what it is and what it can be. Funk is only a part of it.  Read more
