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

Driven by the power of live performance, sheer hard work and savvy independent vinyl releases, Fat Freddy’s Drop has taken the world by storm with their hypnotic dub and future soul grooves.

Their debut studio album ‘Based On A True Story’ has received five star reviews since its release in May 2005, making history as the first independently distributed album to hit number one on the NZ Album Charts, shipping Gold on its first day of release and reaching platinum status within its first two weeks.

Awarded Best Live Act at the b-Net NZ Music Awards in 2004, the seven-piece family of musicians that is Fat Freddy’s Drop are first and foremost a live band, emerging through a multitude of incarnations, from funk jam bands to reggae soundsystems, jazz improvisation and live techno, to become one of the country’s most loved and respected groups.

After critically acclaimed tours of the UK & Europe and international partnerships with London’s Kartel Records and Berlin’s Sonar Kollektiv, the Fat Freddy’s crew hit Australian shores for a deep musical experience not to be missed.
