Freak is an EP in transit, nodding towards the series of groovers released on 2018's Summer Thing while stepping leftward into experimental dance music.
The record kicks off in familiar Philip Grass fashion on "Done with the Groove," a shuffling house track assembled around wandering keys and pads. While a bit somber on the front half, a warm chord appears and reframes the main loop into something more uplifting. Side B enters unfamiliar territory. "Freak Dub" is a hypnotic track at the intersection of garage and techno. The title track, a great mixer for left-leaning sets, concludes the EP.
