Freq Nasty – Freq’n Awesome!!

Posted on 28 March, 2007. Filed under: beats, booty breaks, Breakbeat, breaks, Dance music, DJ, Electronic Music, Electronic Music Artists / DJs, funk breaks, Music, nu skool breaks, remix |

Freq Nasty is one of those DJs that can make even the most dodgy song sound wikkid.

Take, for example, Kelis’s ‘Milkshake’ – a rather bland vanilla excuse for a woman to sit in a milkbar, shake her boobs and “sing” in innuendos. No strong bass lines, no catchy tune, no wonderful voice control, just a couple of annoying lines that seem to get stuck in your head.

That is until Freq Nasty (aka. Mr Darin McFadyen) gets his hands on it. Within 15 seconds of starting the song, a beat comes in that promises something special. Introduce a little synth work and then drop the heavy, tuned bass drops.

And he doesn’t just put random rumbles here and there; overlay a previously recorded sample and loop it over the top of the track repeatedly. He works with and in to the tunes, not stripping them too far back from their original style.

Add to that some fantastic vocals by Spoonface (haven’t heard an MC as good as him in awhile), and you have one funky, ‘gotta-move-some-part-of-my-body’ piece of toonage.

Freq “god” Nasty !!!

OMG, have you ever seen him live?
The first gig I saw of his was one of the first I’ve ever felt nauseas at because of the bass.
It was wikkid.
