If you’ve been paying any attention to the world of funky breakbeats then you’ve no doubt heard of Basement Freaks – the brainchild of Giorgos Fotiadis.
With years of regular releases George has built up an enviable catalogue of tracks including 4 full albums and a slew of EPs and remixes. In addition to this production work he spends an extraordinary amount of time on the road DJing which has contributed to him being dubbed “The hardest working man in Funk” by his peers. George has played shows across 6 continents and his music has been praised, played and partied to all over the globe, with not only himself but every respectable future funk DJ regularly including a Basement Freaks track in their set.
Basement Freaks music picked up plays on BBC Radio 1, support from the likes of Mixmag, I-DJ Mag, The Knowledge Magazine and championing from Annie Nightingale, Craig Charles, Don Letts and Nemone.
DJ-wise Giorgos has also been strutting his stuff at some legendary festivals with appearances including Glastonbury, Exit and Shambhala as well as rocking club nights at Space (Ibiza), Fabric (London), D.Edge (Sao Paulo) and a monthly residency at Moondoo (Germany). These energetic shows and tireless tour schedules have ensured his fan base continues to grow at a ridiculous rate with his Soundcloud account amassing over 35k followers alone.
