If you were to ask Freedarich to state the artistic area he prefers working in, his shotgun answer would most probably be „music with all its influences“. „What amuses and enthuses me most, is the subtly absurd introduction of different styles“ Freedarich says about himself. Generally, his main passion seems to lie in the unearthing of the concealed and unknown, and making these accessible to the listener. Freedarichs music can be found on his new EP „Lava Boy“, his first to be released on the label Krakatau. Said label was founded by the Berlin Gentlemen of „Bodi Bill“, in order to offer a home to the less established, yet all the more dedicated artists.
The EP accepts no vocabulary which could be found in a catalogue. Techno, minimal or house don’t belong here, as this music is everything! „Lava Boy“ has many stories to tell, this becomes obvious after merely a few tones. The Earth spins a little slower, at least that’s what it feels like. You begin to breathe more calmly and your senses intensify. „Lava Boy“ sashays and floats, it whispers, but at the same time it rushes forwards and rejoices. One moment the calm ripple of the surf, in the next the screaming, furious waves breaking on the rock.
The music ist he tranquility of the landscape and the agitation of the city. It takes you on a journey through the day and into the adventures of the night. It’s the pulse of the club, the laughing at the bar, the urge to dance, the exhausted relaxation and the marve l at sunrise. Eventually the sounds fade away and bequeath a soft sense of melancholy: Did minutes pass, or was it hours? Freedarich has a lot to say: when you listen, when you dance and when you feel.
