Freekbass- Free Album Download Today!

From the mind of Freekbass, comes his 5th full-length release: CONCENTRATE, which continues to expand his horizons and soundscape.
While most kids were listening to Nirvana and Green Day, he connected with the bottom-heavy sounds coming out of the boom boxes like Zapp and Midnight Star. While working in a music shop to pay off his first electric bass he had in lay-away, he 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.

HEADTRONICS MAKE RARE OHIO STOP!

Headtronics is an electronic project from DJ Logic (Medeski, Martin and Wood; John Popper Project), Steve Molitz (Particle; Phil Lesh and Friends) and Ohio bass prodigy Freekbass (Bootsy Collins; Buckethead) that has already received national attention though the artists have only performed a very limited number of dates.

The trio was birthed from a collaborative effort during last summer's Universal Church of Love and Music Funk Festival in PA. Afterward, Freekbass said, “It turned out to be one of those magical musical moments, so we decided to play some full shows together.” The accolades and influences of the individual artists of Headtronics ranges from funk, to rock and roll, to hip-hop, but together Logic, Molitz and Freekbass create electronic funk that appeals to fans of all genres.

With only select performances scheduled thus far for 2011, Headtronics (named by the legendary Bootsy Collins) will bring its electronic infused funk to Cleveland, OH, on Thursday, January 27, 2011. The fresh beats of DJ Logic, groundbreaking bass lines of Freekbass and truly unique keyboard skills of Steve Molitz create a style and show not to be missed!
