A mythic mutation of hyper-trans-dimensional origin has finally arrived...

The Majestic Overlord of Low End...Fre3KBasS!

Utilizing his primordial subsonic technologies to enlighten the masses via dynamic principles of Fre3k-harmonic-synergy, thus, uniting our secular global communities with the indomitable spirit of Faith, Hope & Love for The Funk ... His ulterior prime directive...

"The ONE is the Only Option."

Born and raised in Cincinnati, OH, Freekbass was an only child who initially wanted to be a magician. He later developed his own obsession for cartoon superheroes and comic books, relating to the underlying themes.

Living in Cincinnati exposed Freekbass to genres of music he may have missed otherwise. 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.

Freekbass has released six full-length CDs, including “Concentrate” with guests Bootsy Collins, DJ Spooky, Adam Deitch, and Steve Molitz, and “Junkyard Waltz” which includes guest appearances by Phish bassist Mike Gordon, guitarist Buckethead, keyboard wizard from P-Funk/Talking Heads Bernie Worrell, and is produced by funk legend Bootsy Collins. Also, national music DVD instruction company, The Rock House Method, recently released two Freekbass instructional DVDs “Learn Funk Bass with Freekbass (Level 1 & Level 2) “, and TrueFire.com just released the instructional DVD/download “50 Freekbass Licks You Must Know” . In 2010 Freekbass connected with DJ Logic, and Particle keyboardist Steve Molitz to form the funktronica trio, Headtronics.

Going into 2014 Freek has a lot of things on the table. He is releasing his next album , “Everybody’s Feelin’ Real”, which is produced by Duane Lundy (My Morning Jackets’ Jim James/Ben Sollee) with guests Razor Sharp Johnson, Skerik, and Jennifer Hartswick . Also, he was a part of this year’s London Bass Guitar Show in the UK giving a master class and performing. Plus he will be doing extensive touring with his mainstay funk group, “Freekbass & The Bump Assembly”.

Freekbass w/ Nashawti – Friday, August 19th

Freekbass w/ Nashawti - Friday, August 19th

Freekbass isn’t just another funk artist who regurgitates traditions. Despite growing up in the same Cincinnati/Dayton funk hotbed that produced James Brown’s pioneering King Records catalog and Bootsy Collins and the Ohio Players, he’s produced a 21st century style over the course of six releases that meshes traditional elements of funk with decidedly more modern soundscapes.

“As much as I listen to Sly Stone, Stevie Wonder, OutKast or George Clinton, I also listen to groove and feel groups such as Radiohead, Daft Punk, STS9 and DJ Shadow,” says Freekbass, whose current album, Junkyard Waltz, features guests like Mike Gordon, Buckethead, Bernie Worrell, Jen Durkin, and Gary “Mudbone” Cooper.

“So, just like when P-Funk started and were influenced by groups like Zappa, Bowie, and The MC5, these groups of our era are what crawled into my funk.” Determined not to become a one-act show, he also plans to explore new dimensions of live electronica as a duo with turntablist Tobotius, contribute to the next Bootsy Collins record, release a third instructional DVD and develop a pilot for a children’s show.

The Nth Power wsg/ Freekbass – Friday, September 25th

The Nth Power wsg/ Freekbass - Friday, September 25th

Proving that soul music can be exponentially greater than the sum of its parts, The Nth Power is on a mission to share the light. Formed during an impromptu late-night jam at Jazz Fest 2012 in New Orleans, the relentlessly funky and soulful band believes in music as a higher power -- tapping into an energy that is simultaneously sexy and spiritual, with songs that will inspire audiences to dance, groove, make love or just stand there with goose bumps.

The quintet hails from diverse musical backgrounds, races and creeds. Female powerhouse Nikki Glaspie was Beyonce’s world-touring drummer for five years before she joined Ivan Neville’s New Orleans funk outfit, Dumpstaphunk. Bassist Nate Edgar of Groovechild and John Brown’s Body perfectly compliments Singer and Guitarist Nick Cassarino who came from the Jennifer Hartswick Band and toured with Big Daddy Kane. Next add West African Master-Percussionist, Weedie Braimah to the mix with his insurmountable world beat rhythms. Finally rounding off the ensemble is the newest and youngest member, Courtney J’Mell Smith who brings his soulful vocals and keyboard abilities to the table.

"Just know that when you hear this music, you're going to feel something -- you're going to connect with something higher than yourself," explains Braimah.

The Nth Power's 2013 independent EP, Basic Minimum Skills Test, showcases a first glimpse of the spark shared among the group, delivering gospel-style vocals with soul, jazz, funk and world-beat riffs in nearly mathematical fashion.

"It's my dream team," said Glaspie. "Each one of us is a songwriter, so when we get together, everything becomes that much stronger." Beyond raw skill, however, Glaspie cites a deep spiritual connection as the glue that binds them together. "Music is what brought us together, but it's the spiritual bond that makes us play so in touch with each other," she explained.

And at the core of their vibe is a deviously simple concept -- the healing power of love.

Following The Nth Power's 2013 debut, their inspirational sets floored audiences at music festivals like Electric Forest, Bear Creek, Catskill Chill and North Coast Music Festival. In just the last six months, the group has performed more than 50 shows in 21 states across the US, and made their second international appearance at Australia's Caloundra Music Festival on their 2014 "Fall In Love Tour."

Although the band members are based across the East Coast, they maintain New Orleans as their "spiritual home," and the celebratory essence of that city's music culture is audible in each performance.

In September 2015, The Nth Power will release their first full-length studio album, Abundance. The studio version of the album's lead single "Only Love" will debut in June 2015 and promises a soul-surrendering groove steeped in fellowship among all who hear it. They have a live recording of this song already in regular rotation on Sirius XM Radio's "Jam On" station.

Simply put, there is something pretty magical happening in this band, and they're only just getting started. "We're going as far as you can go on the planet Earth and playing music," explains Glaspie. "I don't know how many times we've said it — we are so blessed."
