1. We Bring The Music
2. 8-Bit Bitch
3. Curtis Chips
4. Acid Triffid
Freak 7 used to release tracks under the name of Sasso, and has appeared on many compilations including Brazilian Beats Vol 5 and Vol 8, and Norman Jay’s Good Times Vol 7. He even did a bootleg of Roy Ayers‘ “We Live In Brooklyn” last year, which saw huge support from many DJs.
“We Bring The Music” is a homage to all things acid, with slick drum programming and stripped back vocals from none other than Ironweed (who just happens to be the brainchild of renowned writer, producer and vocalist, Aniff Akinola, founding member of cult Manc hip-hop outfit Chapter and the Verse, co-writer of Kirsty MacColl’s hit “Walking Down Madison” and general co-conspirator of such 90’s electronic luminaries as The Orb, Steve Hillage and The Beloved). I defy anyone on the dance-floor not to move!
Stepping up a gear – and moving into slightly more techno territory – “8 Bit Bitch” uses clever carnival style drums, throbbing bass and sharp high hats. “Curtis Chips” is wonky 6am business that is sure to twist the mind of any seasoned raver. Finally “Acid Triffid” makes you feel like you are listening to music-of-old but with a fresh twist.
This EP conjures up names such as Phuture 303, Adonis, DJ Pierre, A Guy Called Gerald, and Marshall Jefferson; and with huge DJ and radio support from the Unabombers, Mr. Scruff, Rainy City Music, Mike Chadwick, Helen Mayhew, Gilles Peterson, Patrick Forge, KCRW (big LA based tastemaker station) and Laurent Garnier, this has all the right ingredients to be a club monster.
With music of this calibre there really is exciting times indeed!
