- In 2015, Alex Hunt aka Subtractive released a track called 'Certified Freak'. His definition of 'freak' is a positive one, especially in the nightlife space. The people he knows who are DJs, bar stars & festival enthusiasts all pride themselves on not being restricted by the status quo.
Culturally, this cluster took the words 'weirdo', 'freak' & 'odd', and turned them on their head, giving them a positive meaning. At the same time, they dissed the terms 'normal' & 'basic.' To coalesce into the dance music scene, you want to be a little weird. You want to be a bit odd. This was the foundation of 'cool'- if you are a certified freak, you're in.
Cut to 2019: Those who were simply clubbers looking for a great weekend have evolved into part-time shamans- the woke generation has arrived. It's not just enough to be different, you need to ascend to enlightenment. This EP is an evolution of those two worlds, ravers and prophets, converging.
A play on words- 'Theta Freq' and 'Alpha Freq' draw inspiration from dreams and meditation. Theta frequencies and Alpha frequencies are two essential types of brainwaves. A deep spiritual connection and unity with the cosmos can be experienced at Theta. Alpha is the gateway to your subconscious mind; the foundation of your conscious awareness. In honor, 'frequency' has been shortened to 'Freq'- Freak 2.0
Above all else, these tracks are meant to bust up a sound system and shake the dance floor.
Lets have fun. Let your Freq flag fly.
