If you’re a Deezer subscriber, the app has blessed you with some incredible, exclusive content from local pop duo Easy Freak this week. The duo was named a Deezer NEXT 2019 priority act, a global programme designed to help emerging artists with 12 months of dedicated support from Deezer’s editorial and artist marketing teams including playlisting, creative marketing campaigns, special content, fan events and social media. Now, they’ve just recorded an exclusive live session for the streaming app which shows fans just how talented the duo is.
Self-produced by the pop funk duo, the live video EP features three reworked tracks from their popular debut album, ‘no LIES’. Easy Freak seamlessly blends pop, electro, funk and soul perfectly with the help of a full band. The sounds of horns and strings add another layer of mood on the tracks, no lies, options and magic, showcasing the pair’s versatility and talent in blending different genres.
“Being a part of Deezer NEXT is a big honour for us. The team at Deezer have been very supportive and encouraging. The Deezer NEXT programme is something unique in the industry and is driving progress in the music industry globally,” Easy Freak said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Sotiris Moldovanos, Music Editor for Africa, Deezer says that “Easy Freak bring a special sound to the South African music scene and we are proud to showcase their unique talent in their first Deezer Session. The live video EP is just one of the many ways we support emerging artists through our Deezer NEXT programme and bring their music even closer to our fans in Africa and around the world.”
