Seven headed soul monster Fat Freddy’s Drop is internationally regarded as one of the world’s finest live draws. Founded in the club scene in Wellington in 1999, Freddys sound draws inspiration from almost every part of the black music lexicon. Soul drenched vocals and jazz harmonies collide with tape delays and echo chambers, underpinned by a rhythm section as comfortable laying down a throbbing, techy soundscape as they are a swampy blues stomp. It’s a sound that demands to be heard live, a potent mixture of virtuosity and diaphragm-wrecking digital sonics.
