There is a very particular bit of artist-centric evidence that determines the ostensible success of an album. Everybody’s Feelin’ Real, the new release from Cincinnati Funktronica legend Freekbass, is packed like a Kardashian’s overstuffed suitcase with that specific proof. 


Freekbass’ catalog to date has been warmly embraced by the Electronic and Jam communities, and with good reason. In genres where repetition is not only accepted but also celebrated and improvisation is little more than noodle-headed flights of variational fancy, Freekbass has infused his contributions with originality, intensity and intrigue.

But on Everybody’s Feelin’ Real, Freekbass, his band (drummers Big Bamn and Chip Wilson, keyboardist Joel “Razor Sharp” Johnson and saxophonist Skerik) and a few musical guests have combined to craft one of the most Pop-driven albums in the bass icon’s long career.


Freekbass & the Bump Assembly play at 8 p.m. Friday, June 13 at Southgate House Revival. Tickets/more info here.
