Freeez were a jazz-funk group from London, UK formed around 1980. The group had their first hit single "Southern Freeez", featuring guest vocalist Ingrid Allmann, in early 1981.

The group's music took a more electronic direction in 1983 when they worked with American producer Arthur Baker on the track 'IOU' (and the subsequent album Gonna Get You) which reached no. 2 in the UK, and also became a US dance hit. Baker also worked with New Order the same year to produce their 12" single 'Confusion', which bears considerable similarities to 'IOU'.
