‘Therapy / Lately’
Released: 1st March 2019
Freek is certainly no stranger to the RAM/ProgRAM team. Previous appearances include the crowd pleasing ‘Cobalt 60’ (supported by none other than Andy C), to his most recent offering ‘Human Being’ on last years ‘RAM Goes To Let It Roll 3.0’ EP. Freek found himself on ProgRAM’s first long-player offering ‘Encrypted’ way back in 2015. Now he gets his own chance to shine with the first of two standalone singles on Ram’s sister label.
‘Therapy’ is allllll about the bassline. Sparse beats and fills are swamped by the wave riding hoover bass, which definitely makes its presence known. Featured guest MC Jack Knife adds a punk aesthetic, with a brash vocal adding extra bark to the productions bite. Pushing things in more melodic direction is ‘Lately’, where Freek displays a liquid side to his usual dancefloor sound. For this he enlists singer/songwriter Chris Cotton, who adds crisp vocals over the melancholic piano, strings and warping bass.
‘Therapy’ and ‘Lately’ are two examples of an artist growing in confidence with every release across our imprints, while showing versatility in the process. It’s time to get with the ProgRAM – and 2019 is already looking strong.
