"Pacific purveyors of hi-tek soul Fat Freddy’s Drop are a seven-piece family of musicians who’ve grown up together in Wellington.

Emerging through a multitude of incarnations from funk jam bands to reggae sound systems, jazz covers to live Detroit style techno, their debut album called ‘Based On A True Story’ was released in the UK on 27 June 2006 to rave reviews.

Paul Clark of the BBC says the album “is a blend of digital dub rhythms, soulful ballads, sun-flecked brass and plaintive vocals and the perfect way to dip your toes into the warm musical waves currently rippling in the South Pacific”. - Maori Televsion 

If you haven’t seen this documentary which charts the experience of the Freddies and their debut album, you must.
