Hailing from the south-west of the UK, drum & bass producer Fred V has elevated his trademark euphoria and melodic movements to new heights. Now exclusively signed to Hospital Records as a solo artist, he aspires to push the boundaries of the D+B landscape into new realms with his unique songwriting, vocal skills and as a supremely talented multi-instrumentalist.
With his shimmering big room steppers to heart-melting arpeggio melodies, Fred V draws inspiration from the likes of future-bass, electronica powerhouse Flume and the neo-soul stylings of Tom Misch. His accomplished songwriting abilities allow him to tread the delicate boundaries of D+B and the boundless realms of electronica.
Having spent the last seven years touring the world and receiving huge support across dancefloors and airwaves from the likes of Annie Mac, Friction, MistaJam and Rene LaVice, the decision to step away from his decade long collaborative project Fred V & Grafix marked a new and exciting chapter in Fred V’s career.
With a hefty selection of solo releases now under his belt including his ‘Distance’ EP which frequented support on BBC Radio 1 on Annie Mac’s show, soulful drum & bass gem ‘Trust Me’ featuring SAYAH, as well as dancefloor slammers ‘Icarus’ and ‘Apeldoorn Jamming’, Fred V has carved out his own lane in which all roads lead to his highly-anticipated debut album on the horizon for the summer of 2021. Consisting of 15 tracks that feature exciting collaborations with Millbrook, Zara Kershaw, Vonné, Lottie Jones and SAYAH, his first-ever standalone longplayer ‘Radiate’ is everything you’d hope for and more. Built from an infusion of electronic influences from the past, present and future, expect an up-close and intimate insight into the Exeter-based multi-instrumentalist, as he continues to showcase his unique musical identity through ethereal soundscapes and melancholic climates.
