Headtronics featuring Steve Molitz , DJ Logic, and Freekbass
Spawned at last summer's Universal Church of Love and Music Funk Festival, brand-spankin'-new funk trio, Headtronics, gave funk fans a taste of their collaborative efforts this past April. Named by legendary funk bassist Bootsy Collins, Headtronics consists of three of today's best touring funk musicians, including Freekbass (7 time Cincinnati music award winner), turntablist extraordinaire DJ Logic, and keyboardist Steve Molitz (Particle, Phil Lesh and Friends).
After a mind-blowing on-stage jam session, the chemistry between these three musicians was undeniable. A band would be born. "It turned out to be one of those magical musical moments, so we decided to play some full shows together," said Freekbass. Funk and electronica fans everywhere should keep an eye and an ear out for Headtronics, one of the most exciting new projects to hit the scene in years.
While traditionally Headtronics is DJ Logic, Freekbass, and Steve Molitz, the cast of characters is ever revolving. As each band member leads their own band outside of Headtronics, and given the improvisational nature of the group, it is not unusual for the lineup to change from gig to gig. The band has been blessed to have Hall of Fame keyboardist and legendary funk master Bernie Worrell as a special guest on select shows. Other band members and guests have already graced the stage with Headtronics at festivals including Scott Metzger (Rana), Fareed Haque (Garaj Mahal and the Flat Earth Ensemble), Adam Dietch (Soulive, Pretty Lights) and others have joined the mayhem. You never know what type of celebratory sounds might come from this band. Never before has a Simon Says band generated the buzz and hype that surrounds Headtronics from its inception and into the future.
