So I guess I’m on a bit of a funky big beat kick. When I was in San Francisco earlier this year I ran across Tweekin’ Records and picked up a couple of Freddy Fresh 7” records from earlier this decade at the height of big beat. I hadn’t had a chance to listen to them again until now and they’ve got me looking for more music like this. I had no idea that he was this popular or prolific. The records I had gotten have some real feel-good funky vibes and some wicked 303 basslines in them as well.
He also runs Howlin’ Records, among other labels, which goes further into the different breakbeat genres. Definitely worth checking out.
