Produced and co-written by the legendary bassist Bootsy Collins, former James Brown sideman and bottom end for Parliament-Funkadelic, Freekbass' Body Over Mind is the kind of straight-up funk record that simply doesn't get made anymore.

Nonetheless, Body Over Mind is a deeply thumping, thickly grooved debut by an anomalous band.
