  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    01 No State Solution (Lacandon Remix Feat. Marcos)
    02 Screaming Remix (DJ Sun Version)
    03 Space Witch (Dub Remix)

    Adored by critics and audiences alike, The Free Radicals is a horn driven dance band that somehow manage to combine funk, hip-hop, African music, American jazz, Indian music, punk, klezmer, Latin jazz and a little polka in to beautiful, impassioned music. Known as a band that never backs down from a cause they’re passionate about, The Free Radicals chose the album title No State Solution because it’s their opinion that governments have trouble coming up with peaceful solutions to issues but society has the right, and the power, to demand justice and truth. The band has performed at marches and fund raisers for causes they believe in including peaceful protests in favor of immigration rights, children’s healthcare and anti-authoritarianism.

    Includes unlimited streaming of No State Solution via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

released April 24, 2018

No State Solution (Lacandon Remix Feat. Marcos) features a mystical solo on tenor sax by Marcos Melchor, who has played on all of the Free Radicals’ albums. Vocalist Folasayo Dele-Ogunrinde did the spoken word on the recording in Nigerian Pidgin (the language Fela Kuti sang in). Folasayo's recording on the tracks came just weeks before she was diagnosed with cancer, and she passed away within the year.

“Screaming (DJ Sun Radio Remix)” is a hard rock sax track (how many of those do you hear each year?) from the band’s 2017 release Outside the Comfort Zone. Said Cooper, ”When DJ Sun approached the band about doing a remix, we had no idea what he might come up with and
were pleasantly surprised to hear three different remixes of Screaming that capture the energy of the original, and throw it in new directions.” DJ Sun added, “I had a lot of really amazing tracks to choose from. In choosing “Screaming,” I looked for elements that I as producer could really influence.” The new video for "Screaming" features local breakdancer Zesh HK and others dancing in front of Free Radicals at several live shows at Houston's Avant Garden.
