“I wanted the live show to be more upbeat”, Chaz Bundick told Spin prior to the release of this five-song EP, and if that was the primary intention behind the electro-funk collection, the DJ succeeded admirably. There’s not a song on this set that won’t keep your ass on the dance floor. “All Alone” is the closest tribute we’ve had to Michael Jackson since Timberlake’s “LoveStoned”, while “Sweet” sounds like a Steely Dan/Parliament mashup. And for those that fell in love with the chillwave of his full-lengths, don’t worry; “I Can Get Love” still pulsates with that same soothing electronica. It may not necessarily compete with the artistry of Underneath the Pine, but Freaking Out was never about that. This is about energy, and there’s more than enough here to make ravers happy.
