New Happa – “Freak”
Happa, the prodigal son of everything good and holy in the techno-verse, got in the holiday spirit last week to give away the unremittingly dark “Freak”. 2012 was the year that the once ubiquitous TR-303 came roaring back and while it didn’t quite permeate the mainstream, the machine was utilized far and wide. On “Freak”, the 15-year old wunderkind buries traditional acid under a mound of dirt, forcing the relatively traditional sounds to squelch out from deep within a cave. It’s not Happa’s biggest or best effort, but it offers a side of the producer we haven’t seen yet and, well, it’s free. Stream and download below.
