About this Track
Freekbass returns with his signature funk forward sound in “Runaway” encapsulating early 80s dance floor funk with an eye on 2025 aesthetics. During this most recent Color Red session, Freekbass & The Bump Assembly envisioned capturing an early 80s robotic sound of funk right before drum machines and keyboard sequencers hit the world. Utilizing the live band featuring Freekbass on bass, Sammi Garett on vocals, Sky White on Keyboards, and Rico Lewis on drums, you hear the delivery of masterful musicians with a calculated, yet energetic quantized feel. Lyrically, “Runaway” sings to chasing after love, while also being shrouded in fanaticism. Freekbass will continue releasing one track a month for the next four months, culminating in an EP.
