Bio

Looking to complement a fundamental appreciation of jazz and blues with an increasingly electronic vision of hip-hop production, the FF crew is well beyond emulation. Stretching the limits of audio manipulation while simultaneously balancing a full horn section, live band, and fiery lyricist, Free Food has chosen the road less traveled. They've built a unique style that attempts to balance the raw vibe of LA's aggressive hip-hop club culture and the danceable bravado of retro R&B, time-tested through their first years of performance. Rapper, Karat, uses a rapid-fire flow, quick wit and abstract style to contrast the dark interior of his South Central upbringing with the wild life of LA youth. The full recipe cooks up a live show that is quickly building a following across the state. Free Food can break necks and move feet, spit lava and shake asses.

Fresh off a summer tour in the San Francisco-Bay Area and having performed alongside artistic luminaries such as Lalah Hathaway, Elzhi (Slum Village), and Souls of Mischief, Free Food is back in the studio with its debut album well on the way to a Winter 2012 release. Recent performances find them supporting MiM0SA, Charles Bradley and others.

“These cats are homegrown, California-grown talent, soon to be internationally known. They’ve got soulful sounds reflecting on world conditions while rhythmically providing hope for brighter and better days…you’re going to want to hear more of them.”
