We first heard this killer on Mr Beatnick’s NTS show, and since then it’s been on a regular repeat here.
The first release on the new Tune label, Freek Tool is the work of an apparently well-known producer, who wanted some anonymity for this track (we’re guessing the producer is a fan of the Arsenal football team based upon the pseudonym being a fusion of two of the clubs most injury-prone players.).
Tune is the new sister label to the mighty fine Local Talk label, and is focusing on releasing single-sided vinyl, where the track is strong enough to not require a B-side or remix.
There isn’t much substance to Freek Tool – it’s pretty much just an acapella from 90s RNB banger, Joedci – Freakn You, layered over a crunchy drum workout but in the hands of Walbeck, this combination is seriously powerful.
No download for this one so jump over to your favourite record store and pick this one up pronto.
