With organic, bass-centric sounds mixing with forward-looking soundscapes, Everbody’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, 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, Sly Stone & Dr. Dre the ten-songs on Everbody’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.

Accompanying him on the new release are Les Claypool collaborator Skerik, Jennifer Hartswick from Trey Anastasio Band, Joel “Razor Sharp” Johnson from Bootsy’s Rubberband, Kim Manning, Chip Wilson and Big Bamn from George Clinton’s Parliament-Funkadelic and percussionist David Farris. Read more

Cincinnati’s own Freekbass leaves tomorrow to participate in the London Bass Guitar show and Cincy Groove is lucky enough to be receiving updates from Freekbass himself on his experience on the other side of the ocean.  Be sure to keep checking back.

See the one and only Freekbass LIVE at the London Bass Guitar Show. Born and raised in Cincinnati, OH, Freekbass takes his inspiration from the likes of Zapp and Midnight Star to produce rich, bottom-heavy bass riffs.

After working in a music shop to pay off his first electric bass he had in lay-away, the young Freekbass began to study the classics of Larry Graham, Sly Stone, Stevie Wonder, Parliament and Bootsy with a bass in one hand, and an MPC2000 in the other.

Since then, Freekbass has released five full-length CDs, including the current “Concentrate” featuring a stellar guestlist with Bootsy Collins, DJ Spooky, Adam Deitch, and Steve Molitz. Read more
