Freekbass Remixes Funky ‘Milkhunt’ Track With Members Of P-Funk [Premiere]

admin no comments

first_imgBeloved bassist Freekbass has a whole new jam, as he’s teamed up with some incredibly funky musicians to form the ultimate power funk trio. With keyboardist Razor Sharp Johnson and drummer Rico Lewis in tow, Freekbass’s recruitment of two longtime members of the Parliament-Funkadelic family has only propelled the bassist’s music into the ether.The only problem is that Freekbass’s recently released album, CINCINNATI, didn’t feature the two funk icons. Naturally, with a new video in the works for the track “Milkhunt,” the band went back to the studio to remix the audio properly. You can stream the new jam below:Speaking about the new project, Freekbass tells us, “Since the album was released on Ropeadope a few months ago keyboardist Razor Sharp Johnson from P-Funk and Bootsy’s Rubberband has started touring with me, and added a whole new dimension to the song with his Funk. So we went back into the studio and had him lay down all of the parts he is doing live, and Producer of the album, Duane Lundy, remixed the song including Razor’s parts and some new bass-breaks, and other sonic moves.”The new release comes ahead of an exciting video for the track, directed by Team HiHo. The group is known for their otherworldly videos, and have collaborated with Freekbass in the past. We could explain it, but you’re best off checking out their work on the 2014 Freekbass track, “Mama’s Like A Cowboy.”Freekbass has a number of exciting tour dates coming up as part of his trio, including a date at American Beauty in NYC on May 28th. You can find more Freekbass info on his official website.last_img read more

Cost of Brisbane land lots fall 14pc as blocks shrink across the capital

first_img6 & 8 Nabeel Place, Calamvale, was part of a 1,400sq m site that was split and re-split to see the development land gross profit of $500,000.THE cost of residential land in Brisbane fell a massive 14 per cent last year with lots on the Gold Coast now more expensive than the Queensland capital. But the devil’s in the detail.New data by Oliver Hume found buying a block in Brisbane set buyers back $358,500 at the end of last year – a median price drop of 14 per cent in just 12 months.Land on the Gold Coast was $25,700 more expensive than Brisbane, according to the latest Oliver Hume Quarterly Market Insights, with the glitter strip pulling off an 8 per cent rise in median lot price to $384,200.But Oliver Hume senior research analyst Amanda Bittenbinder said Brisbane’s massive median price decrease was not because of a struggling market but the type of blocks that were coming to market.“The Brisbane market is shifting towards smaller lot sizes, due to land availability and affordability,” she told The Courier-Mail.“Our data shows that 48 per cent of project land sales in Brisbane over Q4 2017 were between 301-400sq m whereas the Gold Coast recorded 52 per cent of sales over 500sq m.”She said the Gold Coast had a higher median lot size than Brisbane.Broken down, the data showed “the rate per sqm in Brisbane was $899/sq m in Q4, whereas the Gold Coast recorded $513/sq m – that’s a difference of $386 per sq m”.In the December quarter alone, 1,956 lots were sold in South East Queensland, a fall of 5.5 per cent that had more to do with stock availability than demand.Agent Tom Zhang of Yong Real Estate said demand was outstripping supply in Brisbane.One of his recent sales included 6 and 8 Nabeel Place, Calamvale, which was part of a larger 1,400sq m block that a developer had bought for $1.1m.“A developer bought it, they subdivided the rear 800sq m out and further subdivided that into two 400sq m blocks. For 400sq m that was selling for over $400,000 each. Those two blocks at the back sold for $800,000 and he still has the front house that will sell for more than $800,000. So his total income of over $1.6m minus development costs still ends up a fantastic return in a short period of time.” 122 Roscommon Road, Boondall, was split in two with each block on the market for over $350,000.He said “small to medium developers are so hungry for this type of product”.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus20 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market20 hours ago“It’s easy to sell the land. The normal homebuyer can’t afford big blocks but a 400sq m block they might be able to. The worry now is the low supply of empty blocks of land in Brisbane and in the southern suburbs like Sunnybank and Calamvale.”Redland – which includes mainland suburbs like Capalaba and Alexandra Hills as well as island suburbs like North Stradbroke and Coochiemudlo Island – had SEQ’s third highest block cost. Its median land lot was $312,000, a figure that had dropped 3 per cent last year.Popular Moreton Bay – which covers a large area including Caboolture and Redcliffe – saw a 4 per cent fall to $238,000, while the second cheapest land lots in SEQ came out of Logan where the median was holding steady at $230,475.The cheapest place to buy land in the region was Ipswich ($199,500), though that’s changing rapidly with the area posting the second highest cost increase last year (4 per cent).Despite low retail land supply and strengthening demand, the median land lot price in Queensland was fell slightly to $260,500, the Oliver Hume report said – mostly because of shrinking block sizes.
