Big Boss Man : Das Freak Review

Big-Boss-Man-CDBig Boss Man’s latest single, “Das Freak,” from their upcoming album Bossin’ Around, is an eclectic mix of ’60s R’n’B, Soul, Latin, Funk, and Bongo-Hammond-Fuzz. Big Boss Man has carved a niche in the music industry since their inception in 1998. With a rich history of hundreds of concerts and festivals across the UK, Europe, and beyond, their music has not only graced live audiences but has also found a home in film, television, and advertising – notably in the international NIKE WORLD FOOTBALL ’06 campaign and the BAFTA-nominated short film “Sweet” by The Mighty Boosh.

“Das Freak” is a vibrant continuation of Big Boss Man’s legacy, showcasing their ability to blend genres and epochs into a sound that is unmistakably their own. The track opens with a jazzy flourish, courtesy of guest musicians Frank Grillo on trumpet and Simon Curry on saxophone and flute, setting a sophisticated yet approachable tone. As the song progresses, it seamlessly integrates a dance groove that marries disco with EDM, anchored by a thumping bass line and accented by a clean, swanky guitar rhythm that embodies the funk of yesteryears with a modern twist.

The genius of Big Boss Man lies in their musical versatility and ability to create a sonic landscape that feels wonderful for dancing and forward-moving enough for listening. “Das Freak” is a perfect example of this, as it takes listeners on a journey through the disco era while incorporating elements of today’s house music. The instrumental solos by Big Boss Man and their guests add a dynamic energy to the track, emphasizing the band’s skill in creating music that is not just heard but felt.

Recorded at Beat Mountain Studios in Newbury and produced by the band, “Das Freak” benefits from a meticulous production process that shines through in clarity and depth. Mastered by Graham Semark at Cyclone Music, Rochester, Kent, the track is a polished gem that radiates the band’s dedication to their craft.

“Das Freak” brings us another enduring number as Big Boss Man continues to make what the people call ‘proper’ music; their influence and legacy will continue to resonate across dance floors and through the airwaves. Bossin’ Around is an album to look forward to; as “Das Freak” shows, this band refuses to be boxed into a single genre, promising an auditory experience that is as diverse as it is captivating.

About The Author
Shannon Smith
A fan of music my entire life. Should that be enough, well it is for me. Who buys music, the fans. Who listens to music, the fans. Like me, there are many like-minded individuals that daily search for meaningful and new music to add to their playlist, their soundtrack of life. A life without music would Bb. Yes, I have seen that saying floating around for years, and truth is, its #truth. So, may I introduce you to Shannon Smith (me). I am the editor. A music junkie that can’t get enough music in my life. A nerd (proudly), with some mad love for technology and design. It is that desire that sparked Sound in Review. Life is busy, the reviews are meant to ultimately introduce and briefly talk about the music. We have a section called SIR Quote: this is my way of saying thank you, to the countless artists making the world a place of expression. Show yours by rating each artists album, just as we have (collectively as writers), to show your support for your favorite artist.
