About Freq. Nasty
Freq. Nasty's fascination with acoustics, speculative sci-fi, and contemporary politics perfectly complements his advanced knowledge of the Electro-Funk breakbeat. Lengthy vocal introductions about the "incredible acoustic properties of certain minerals" lead into wickedly funky grooves; snippets of the vocal tracks endlessly repeat themselves in varying rhythmic configurations. The basslines squiggle and slide with such swaggering attitude, your lip may get stuck in a cocky sneer as you attempt to revive your long-forgotten pop-and-locking skills. Meanwhile, robotic voices pop in and out of nowhere as synths blip and bleep away like R2D2 turned hip-hop emcee. Fabricated conversations about the international oil trade, spooky Ambient drones, and itchy synth riffs weave through minefields of devastating breaks. Be careful with these tracks: if you're not an experienced B-boy, you'll have to resist the urge to blithely throw yourself onto the floor.
