George Michelle - ffrreeaakk
23 Aug 2019
Sydney producer George Michelle today delivers a fresh slice of ominous tech house with ‘ffrreeaakk’. In an attempt to call in all freaks and outliers, George Michelle takes you to his own version of a Blade Rave.
"I wanted to make a song that was like a contemporary version of Crystal Method's 'Blood Rave' from the start of Blade - but for freaks and outliers - not vampires,” explains George Michelle.
Evoking an uncomfortable yet satisfying sense of voyeurism, ‘ffrreeaakk’ embodies groove-led production with an underlying shadow of eerie instrumentation. Combined with George Michelle’s hauntingly sunk vocals, this anthem cultivates everything you could want to hear on the dance-floor of an unilluminated club after midnight.
Having previously hit #3 on the ARIA Club Chart with his remix of PNAU’s hit ‘Changa’, and with support from FBi Radio, Red Bull, NOISEY and Purple Sneakers, it’s clear George Michelle is a new addition to your ‘One to Watch’ list. ‘ffrreeaakk’ follows his latest collaboration release ‘Keep Me Waiting’ with US duo Separate Ways, which gained the support of triple j, triple j Unearthed, Anthony Fantano of The Needle Drop, Purple Sneakers, The Aston Shuffle and Rage.
Until just last year, George Michelle had been exclusively releasing material via Bandcamp, as well as a one-off release on vinyl. His debut LP 'Gang Signs for Outsiders' was manufactured in limited quantities on double cassette and covered by Vice’s NOISEY labelling it "a heavy dose of deep house and garage on the 12 tracks of scattered club music."
Get ffrreeaakky with George Michelle when he supports the UK’s Ben Pearce at Sydney’s Chinese Laundry on Saturday, September 21st.
