Le Freak

Chic are probably the greatest disco/funk band in history and ‘Le Freak’ is amongst the most recognisable pop tunes ever made. Fortunately I know and work with a bass player (Ash Dublin – brother of former Man Utd legend Dion Dublin!) and guitarist (Kevin Armstrong – Bowie, Iggy Pop, Sinead O’Connor etc) who are able to fill in seamlessly for Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers. Long time collaborator Christine Lockhart provided a note-perfect 70’s disco vocal. The mix was performed in San Francisco using a signal path and processing as close to NYC’s Power Station in 1978 as possible.
