Absolutely amazing CD. Nothing better to relax to than some Fat Freddys Drop. It is great that a local Wellington group can shape such beautiful music.

Top job!!

"Awesome music"
5 stars"

This album is so cool and catchy. It's a great old summer kiwi classic album! This is a must-have in my iTunes library.

Pacific purveyors of hi-tek soul Fat Freddy's Drop are a seven-piece family of musicians who have grown up together in Wellington, New Zealand. Emerging through a multitude of incarnations from funk jam bands to reggae soundsystems, jazz improvisation to live techno, their eagerly awaited debut studio album is ‘Based On A True Story’, a fresh slice of future funk complete with surprises, fakes and freaky sidesteps.
