"Radical: atom or molecule that bears an unpaired electron and is extremely reactive, capable of engaging in rapid chain reactions that destabilize other molecules and generate many more free radicals"
The Free Radical Project finds its origins in the underground outdoor party scene of South Africa. It was here that Free Radical Records was born! Playing at and making parties all over South Africa and bringing exciting new tunes to the South African party scene for several years from the late 90s before relocating to Europe. These early years were the foundation of the Label and is what has taken the project to where it is today.
Free Radical Records currently exists mainly in cyberspace, transcending geographic and temporal boundaries as its creators and artists shift continents and timezones. Temporary headquarters have relocated to Spain, with plans to eventually return to Mama Africa.
Free Radical artists and DJs play annually in South Africa at The Noisy Radicals Festival. The Noisy Radical collective is a group of like-minded labels that come together to create this event every December. Label artists also play in many different European countries, the United States, and the Far East. Free Radical Records has signed many talented musicians, including Bombax, Loose Connection, Paralocks, Comadust, Crankshaft and many more to come. There are also talented DJs across the globe who are supported by the label and who spread the music to different countries where the freaks are ready to blast.
Free Radical Records always enjoyed the similarity of our vibrations no matter where in the world we came from!!! This is definitely something the Free Radical Project wants to help promote. Free Radical Records intends to tap into the bountiful supply of talent on the underground scene and bring the best, most kicking and ultimately danceable tunes into our lives!!!
