OUT NOW: Fred V & Grafix ‘Unrecognisable’

Monday, November 24th, 2014

Fred V & Grafix, together with the help of Hospital’s A&R hit squad have stylishly curated a collection of d+b talent to re-work tracks from their critically acclaimed debut album, which was released earlier this year.

Featuring the Fred V vocalled single ‘Recognise’, as well as the Radio One playlisted ‘Forest Fires (feat Etherwood), the album ‘Recognise’ was nominated for ‘Album of the Year’ at the Independent Music Awards – alongside the likes of London Grammar and The Arctic Monkeys.

Eschewing obvious names in favour of cutting-edge artists who are already shaping the future of the genre. The likes of Etherwood, Keeno, Chords and Fredric Robinson represent a new generation, bringing a fresh injection of musical genius to d+b.

On top of the twelve remixes Fred V & Grafix also present one brand new track in the shape of ‘3-D Glasses’. The first new material from the boys since February, it’s a slice of warping triplet time d+b that mines a the current vogue of classical influenced dance music.

Since the albums release Fred V & Grafix have been touring the globe non-stop, playing gigs and festivals from Glastonbury to LA. Finding time in between gigs to turn in remixes for the likes of MNEK, Second City, Netsky and Hybrid.

Fred V & Grafix ‘Forest Fires’ Feat. Etherwood

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

After the release of their debut album ‘Recognise’ in March the Devonshire duo follow up with their second single. ‘Forest Fires’ features the vocals of fellow rising star of drum+bass Etherwood.

Debuted by Zane Lowe on Radio One, Forest Fires encapsulates Fred V & Grafix’s ability to effortlessly gel live guitars and instruments with up to date drum+bass production and vocals to create something fresh. Even ahead of release the track has been added to the BBC Radio 1 playlist.

Remixes come from Etherwood, Taiki & Nulight , Massappeals and Loire. Etherwoods’s own take is in an alternative drum+bass re-rub. Taiki & Nulight drop the tempo and apply their deep house sensibility to the mix. Massappeals twists things up with a trap refix & Loire brings the tempo back down for a chilled finish.

OUT NOW: Fred V & Grafix ‘Recognise’

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Recognise

The first single to be taken from Fred V & Grafix forthcoming debut LP. Recognise showcases these two young producers at the peak of their game.

Combining prodigious song-writing, epic musicality and dancefloor sensibility, ‘Recognise’ eschews the predictable structure of todays identikit D+B and opens with intricate arpeggios and skittering beats. Evolving into an ambitious and complex composition featuring lead vocals from Fred V himself.

Simultaneously intellectual and effortless, it’s a breath of fresh air that builds on the success of Fred V & Grafix previous successes ‘Major Happy’, ‘Games People Play’ and the current ‘Catch My Breath’,

Receiving its debut airplay on Annie Mac’s Friday night Radio One show, Fred V & Grafix count Subfocus, Netsky, Mistajam and B Traits as fans.

Young gun Emperor applies his twisted neurofunk genius to the remix for this package, choosing to frontload the song and harmonic structure before descending with a Spartan bassline workout and rugged tick-tock drums which will have every 21st century junglist grinning from ear to ear.

Fellow South-Western young guns “Panda” drop the tempo and flip the genre with their own sublime take on the original to round off the package.
