Sydneysider, Freda (soundcloud), has three tracks waiting for release on Moonshoe – a label native to his hometown – which will be his second and only the fourth overall release on the imprint. Run by a musical collaborator of Freda’s, Jackson, the label has so far put out music from some impressive Australian artists, like Jackson himself and Horation Luna, the latter of which is a founding member of renowned Melbourne collective, 30/70.
Freda’s forthcoming EP, “Mad Dancer”, features a couple of dusty house and disco tracks on the A-side. The B-side, however is a more experimental, breakbeat track, intricately packed to the sonic-brim with drum and chopped vocal samples. Our premiere Breakfast on the flip is the curveball of the 3 tracks. A darker mood is established before a syncopated break drives the EP home, exemplified by a sliding dissonant synth melody.
Expect good things from the young but impressive Moonshoe label in general, but first and foremost, look out for this high quality Freda record, released digitally and on some limited 12-inchers on April 20. Pre-order here.
