If youve been paying any attention to the world of funky breakbeats then youve no doubt heard of Basement Freaks – the brainchild of George Fotiadis, a major force in the scene for well over ten years. Not only do his DJ sets elevate sold out crowds, he produces more music than almost any other DJ in the scene and is the label boss for the infamous label Bombastic Jam.
After more than 10 successful vinyl releases, 2 full albums, over 15 remixes and countless digital EPs, George has been called The hardest working man in Funk. His music has been praised by MixMag, I-DJ Mag and even the Godfather of Nu-Skool Breaks Rennie Pilgrem. In fact, every respectable funk DJ on the planet includes a Basement Freaks tune in their set.
George exploded into the world of breaks with his remix of Beggarman by Smoove and Turrell. Jalapeno records got wind of this and sought out George to produce a follow-up album Something Freaky which has been played on BBCs Radio1 and written about in Knowledge Magazine.
In 2011 Georges Perin a long time collaborator and vocalist of Something Freaky LP becomes an active member of Basement Freaks project and perfroms with the soundsystem.
His previous album Debut was part of his side project,Smokey Bandits, and showcases Georges multitalented skills as he plays guitar, bass and drums. Since then,George has released music for Goodgroove,Wack,Breakbeat Paradise, ESL, Air Recordings, Bombstrikes and, of course, Bombastic Jam.
Basement Freaks has toured extensively throughout Europe dropping funk at the renowned Glastonbury Festival,the Fabric & Cable Nightclubs in London and the Exit & Reworks Festivals. In the summer of 2011, Basement Freaks headlined the worlds largest and best breakbeat festival Shambhala in Canada.Late 2012 the freaks hit Brazil with 2 massive performances on D.Edge Club & NaveGroove#9 Festival.
