Music For Freaks label set to return!

Music For Freaks has been relaunched by Luke Solomon and Justin Harris, aka Freaks, to showcase the diversity within the scene that it was famous for back in the mid 90's. Using 50 years between them of experience in the wonderful world of House Music, Solomon and Harris have managed once again to pull together a collection of music and remixes that test the boundaries without compromising on quality.

Spearheading the label relaunch is an alluring package of unearthed MFF classics from Freaks and Turner which includes remixes from 2 of the finest contemporary dance producers of the moment, Ricardo Villalobos and Tuff City Kids. Ricardo works his Leftfield magic on Freaks 2003 arty classic 'The Man Who Lived Underground', delivering a giant 12.33 minutes of Villalobos quirky deepness. German duo, Tuff City Kids take on Turner's 'Been Out' and deliver a lush deep groove, drizzled with echoes of 80's electronica armed with heavenly vocals and lush keys, primed to bring the house down. Topping off this sublime package is an original unreleased edit from 1999 of Freaks 'Instrument', ripe with its bubbling bass and a perpetual spacey synth hook that dances around their infectious funky beats.
