Freddys new ish
I had the pleasure of seeing Fat Freddys Drop play live last week, at Microsoft's Techfest party, part of its annual Tech.Ed conference. They played two sets and absolutely killed it. Haven't seen the bros for a while, and they went off, in spite of playing to a roomful of geeks wearing red superhero capes - which were the admission ticket to the event (and who got into it too, I might add). Hopepea and Slave donned red capes too (see above photo), for their second set.
Speaking Freddys, here's a free download of a new tune...
"Brand new instrumental 'Bohannon Dub'. Hails from the lab of DJ Fitchie who, unbeknown to the bros, hit record while they were jamming in the lead up to a recording session. The title is inspired by Daniel Best's Berlin soulclub 'Bohannon' that he named in honour of American disco stomp musician, bandleader & producer, Hamilton Bohannon. Check the video 'Jetlag Does Venice, Bohannon Dub' on www.fatfreddysdrop.tv."
