“Far away sounds of birds, deep, melancholic melodies, strange rythms, eery violins… ah, Freek must be controlling the decks again”.
From an early age Freek Wigbold, aka Freak Strano, came into contact with the phenomenon that is house. Partially by his musical background (trumpet and piano), he had an interest in how these house tracks came to be. This interest lead him to create a sound which is best specified as a euphoric blend of musicality and depth.

What all started with simple producing programs such as Ejay and Music Maker has now become a ‘professional hobby’ with a summer 2009 release on Noir Music. The track ‘My friend is a cloud’ is a co-production of Sebastian Davidson and Freak Strano and has been a positive boost to more releases on the dutch “Klopfgeist” label (such as ‘Buttefly Effect EP’ and ‘The Escape EP’). As one of Groningen’s regularly seen DJ’s, Freak Strano is now known for his melancholic sound which varies from deephouse to hints of progressive with a profound emphasis on organic sounds.
So, is Freek Wigbold a techno DJ trapped in a deep house DJ’s body? Maybe so, but once you get over the initial shock of this melancholic producer playing such physical cuts, you’ve given into the jacking impulse enough to realize that Freak Strano’s productions and his favorite tracks to spin are both deeply emotional and full on physical. One’s just a bit better for partying—something that Freek knows well.
