SubSound presents Freestylers Album Launch Party in Liverpool 18 May 2013

Hot on the heels of an awesome April, SubSound presents yet another epic line-up at 40 Seel Street, Liverpool this time for their 1st birthday in the shape of Freestylers, DJ Woody, Father Funk plus residents Dj NorX and James Sims. Headlining are the Freestylers who are not only making a welcome return to the Liverpool clubbing scene after 10 years but are choosing to celebrate along with the SubSound crew by launching their forthcoming album ‘The Coming Storm’.

With a career spanning over two decades the Freestylers cover all bases from the biggest festivals, most talked about clubs around the world and global dance charts. Having achieved the kind of success most artists can only dream of, they’ve not rested on their laurels. Now, after two years in the studio, it’s fair to say Matt Cantor and Aston Harvey are about to launch a veritable assault on the music scene with the release of their new album, aptly titled ‘The Coming Storm.’

The Freestylers began their career as an Urban Electronic Music Act, and their early tunes ‘B-Boy Stance’, ‘Ruffneck’ and ‘Warning’ set the marker. As their music progressed so did their anthems with the seminal tunes ‘Punks’, ‘Boom Blast’, ‘Fasten Your Seat-Belts’, ‘Painkiller’ and more recently ‘Cracks’. In addition to their status as underground heroes, they have gained commercial success with their huge global hit ‘Push Up’ and have had their music featured in TV and film, including the hugely successful comedy film Zoolander.

From being voted ‘Best Band’ by Musik Magazine to touring with Lenny Kravitz on his American Woman tour (he asked them himself as he was so impressed with their act), rocking a crowd of 30,000 at Glastonbury Festival 1999 and performing at MTV’s Times Square Millennium Party, playing Big Day Out ‘05– it’s fair to say these guys have had one big adventure so far.

Their ever-eclectic style and renegade approach to production focusing on everything in the bass music spectrum is once again on show with their fifth studio album ‘The Coming Storm’ released on BlackHole/Rub-A-Duck Recordings June 2013. With the new addition to their production team Chris Bishop from Stereo:Type they’ve ramped up their sound into overdrive.
Whether they’re performing as a live band, sound system or DJ set, you know they are gonna rock hard.

Alongside the headliners is DJ Woody. The 2x world turntable champion is a genuine kind of a guy, needing nothing more than two turntables, a mixer and an audience to let us all know what he’s all about! Described by the Scratch Perverts as “one of the most creative forces in djing the UK scene has ever produced” DJ Woody even helped Vestax design the World’s first
ever musical turntable. Extending his repertoire his latest venture is the groundbreaking AV/DJ show. Designing and animating all the materials himself ‘Turntables In Technicolor’ and ‘Big Phat 90’s’ are both an electrifying example of DJ Woody’s innovative style expanding his ever growing skill setand pushing the medium to new heights.

Also on the line-up is the North West’s home-grown Father Funk (aka Will Williamson). Fast becoming one of the sharpest producers in the Ghetto Funk scene with flawless production skills and an ear for the coolest funk samples around, he has been delivering an abundance of quality bass heavy funk for the past six months. Many of his infamous bangers have already
been supported by many of the main players in the scene and at only 19 years of age he is certainly a talent to keep an eye on for the future.

Undoubtedly some of the sickest DJ’s in the UK we can’t wait for the Freestylers, DJ Woody and Father Funk to blow off the roof at SUBSOUND.  

All this together with SUBSOUND residents James Sims and Dj NorX will sure mean this event is going to kick some serious ass. So if you’ve got something to celebrate come celebrate with us for one incredible night of bass heavy sounds – just prepare yourself to be blown away by ‘The Coming Storm’.
