Fred V stands tall with his first EP since going solo, ‘Proximity’, following his huge single ‘Burning Me’ from Hospital Records’ stand-out compilation ‘Sick Music 2019’. Across five tracks he explores his signature synth-ladened drum & bass euphoria and funky future-bass beats, alongside features from singer/songwriters Rothwell and Lottie Jones.
Rothwell’s gorgeous vocals on the EP’s lead track ‘Storm’ bring a rich musicality, powered by Fred V’s pristine production and masterfully crafted melodies. It’s a welcomed return to the Hospital camp for the London-based singer, after featuring on Metrik’s huge hit ‘We Got It’ and releasing her own pop-ballad beauty ‘Darling’.
Fans of Fred V’s early collaborative productions ‘Major Happy’ and ‘Games People Play’ will welcome his new solo material ‘Really Happy Aliens’ and ‘Cosmic Flowchart’ - both first-class tickets to brighter days, shining brilliantly in the dreamy realms of big-room D+B.
Emotions run deep as Fred V brings through whispers of his own vocal talent on the soothing liquid D+B journey, ‘Voyage’. Finally, there’s the indie-electronica masterpiece ‘Proximity’ featuring the majestic vocals of Lottie Jones.
