Basement Freaks - Little Red Afro - Jon H Tribute & Album Link

We are back with a new album and our own unique brand of future funk - 

Time Machine 

Is out on Jalapeno Records in February 2016.

Vocal appearances on the album come courtesy of Kylie Auldist (The Bamboos, Tru Thoughts) John Turrell (Smoove & Turrell), Mustafa Akbar (Fort Knox Recordings) and of course it wouldn’t be complete without the unmistakable falsetto of longtime collaborator Georges Perin.

The album title alludes to the fact this record was made with a concerted effort to keep things old school and the production was undertaken using analogue tools to emulate the same techniques that were used for the funk greats that influenced the record like George Clinton, Funkadelic, Curtis Mayfield and of course the aforementioned Godfather Of Soul.

The Freaks have dedicated the album to the memory of their friend Jon H (of Fort Knox Five) who sadly passed away in 2015 whilst the record was being written.
