Some records are specially tailored for underground club play, and CamelPhat‘s “Freak” is undoubtedly among them. An unapologetically low-toned tune that features a monotone vocal from Cari Golden, “Freak” sees the production pair aim for, and ultimately hit, their sonic goal: tech house transfixion. Bullseye.
Crescendoing synths accent the rhythmic shuffle of “Freak” as the productions climbs towards its peaks, like a rollercoaster tantalizing arching before it drops. Atmospheric synths flood the speakers at the breakdowns, accompanied by a bass line that steadies the drops with a power that, surely, could be felt through the soles of those clustered on a dance floor. The sheer heat that emanates from CamelPhat’s latest climatic outing is enough to make any underground aficionado sweat, and to ensnare those less familiar with the subgenre.
