    I saw Freekbass perform live at the first annual Detroit Bassfest a few months ago. First, I can't believe how long it took to get a bassfest going in motown itself.

    Anyway, his sound is just incredibly Bootsy-like which makes sense considering he produces them. The band is a throwback to those great 70's Funk jams complete with crazy effects and all. The thing this, I've heard the songs on disc and they lack everything. They lack power and character and a lot of what make the stage shows awesome.

    They're getting a lot of recognition lately and I highly suggest seeing them if they come to your town. They hail from Ohio so if you live within about 5 states of that area, eventually they'll make it to you.
