"On of the very best reggae albums you'll ever hear"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

For years this has been my favorite reggae album. It's got all the paces, from roots to more modern. FFD really managed to create a master piece here. Crank the volume up and hear the most amazing mixes!

"Great album"

I have this on CD but I much prefer the vinyl version


Pacific purveyors of hi-tek soul Fat Freddy's Drop are a seven-piece family of musicians who have grown up together in Wellington, New Zealand. Emerging through a multitude of incarnations from funk jam bands to reggae soundsystems, jazz improvisation to live techno, their eagerly awaited debut studio album is ‘Based On A True Story’, a fresh slice of future funk complete with surprises, fakes and freaky sidesteps.
