Step out of the rush and let the mystic soul connection of Fat Freddy’s Drop wash over you….

Having won the hearts of Australian audiences last year in their promptly sold out national tour, Fat Freddy’s Drop return to Oz to deliver another live installment of their hypnotic voodoo dub and future soul grooves.

Since their last visit the Freddy’s have continued to add jewels to their crown with their debut album Based On A True Story now reaching 5 x platinum status in NZ where it has sailed back up to number one in the charts.

Indeed the dream of world domination for the seven headed soul monster is fast becoming a reality. In December Fitchie and the bro’s traveled to London to pick up Worldwide Album Of The Year at the Radio 1 Gilles Peterson Worldwide Music Awards 2005 as voted by international fans that tune in to the tastemaker’s show on the BBC.

But as those who have seen them in the flesh will know, this is first and foremost a live band and it is on stage that the magic truly happens. No two Freddy’s gigs are the same as the midnight marauders improvise and jam each song into mystic supernovas of future funk, fakes and freaky sidesteps.

“Unique deep, heavy & soulful roots music. Required listening for both ears. 10/10” Mr Scruff

“A deeply moving experience indeed” Straight No Chaser

“ . . . . original, heartfelt and utterly, utterly beautiful. Simply superb.” iDJ

“Modern funk has never sounded smoother…” Trust The DJ

“With their thunderous horn section, gut bottom bass sound and conscious lyrics they follow the rhythm like an unstoppable steam train on a journey across the deepest and funkiest dub landscape.” Songlines magazine
