Edited Press Release

FreQ Nasty’s back and he’s pushing a new sound that’s destroying underground clubs around the world.

From garage, breaks to dubstep FreQ Nasty’s at the forefront of the freshest beats around.

Bridging the gap between the most current scenes in London’s bass culture, FreQ Nasty rumbles with underground thunder on the recently released FABRICLIVE 42, a staggering showcase of some of the rawest breaks-led beats around. Evading the pitfalls of a genre-controlled mix, yet at the same time avoiding the stop-start feel of a "mash up" mix, on FABRICLIVE 42 he’s imaginatively arranged a flowing, tightly connected blend of FreQ-y tracks. With the bass heavy stomp of L-Vis 1990’s UK take on Baltimore house, the blistering shatter of TRG and several of his own storming productions, including his Santogold hit "Creator," the mix is a terror to bassbins worldwide.

"The Fabric mix is a kind of reference to some of the stuff I have loved recently and where I’ve intersected it in the past in my own work. There’s a ton of good music out there right now; sick beats and heavy bass lines of all styles, and the mix is a snap shot, pieces of music at a place and time that move me. The album is trying to bring it together in one place and make sense of it, to digest it all and spit it out as something that is more than the sum of its parts. Essence d'FreQ for 2009," FreQ Nasty says.

Speaking of sick beats and heavy bass -- that what FreQ Nasty vs Propa Tingz -- "Peacemaker (DUB)" is all about. This is the dub version of a track appearing on FABRICLIVE 42 and it offers the most current look into FreQ Nasty’s sound and his forthcoming new artist album. This collaboration with hot up and comer Propa Tingz starts innocently enough with signature ragga piano stabs before the bass shoots off and rips the cheeks right off your face. It’s quintessential FreQ Nasty and a must-listen. 

When not making music FreQ Nasty spends his time trying to change the world for the better. In 2007, he co-founded Giveback.net to encourage artists and their fans to create positive change in the world. Not only does it allow users post links to articles about the news and events they are passionate about (and not often available in the mainstream media), it also facilitates campaigns to allow musicians to use exclusive and rare tracks to raise awareness and money for the issues they care about.

Check out FreQ's campaign with Michael Franti of Spearhead, or the Water Of Life download album featuring Damien Marley to help support the creation of vital clean water supplies to a village in Ethiopia. Both are free downloads at Giveback.net.
