Continuing on his solo streak of delivering electrifying bass-heavy anthems, Fred V is back with a brand new two-track single, ‘Trust Me’ (feat. SAYAH) / ‘Prosopagnosia’, a final offering before all roads lead to his debut solo album which is on the horizon for the summer of 2021. Following on from the successes of his recent ‘Apeldoorn Jamming’ and ‘Icarus’ releases, the dance music giant is back on Hospital Records with his latest drum & bass double-up.
No stranger to making a vocal drum & bass banger, Fred V has sought the talents of Sydney, Australia based SAYAH, a trained jazz vocalist and pianist whose previous works have been picked up by the likes of NME and Triple J. Soulful and emotive hooks, melancholic guitar licks and a healthy dose of drums & bass crafted to perfection offer clear insight into Fred V’s fresh musical direction.
Sombre strings contrast with uplifting arpeggios and mangled vocal samples on ‘Prosopagnosia’ before a rippling bassline tears its way through the mix, In classic Fred V fashion, expect a multitude of influences ranging from classical instrumentation to jungle breakbeats.
Delving deep into the development of his signature sound, 2021 is shaping up to be a special year for Fred V. With frequent support from airwave tastemakers including BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and Rene LaVice, playlisting at Kiss Dance and garnering the seal of approval from drum & bass legends including DJ Marky, A.M.C, and Koven to name a few, the future is looking strong for Fred V as his next move points to unveiling his highly-anticipated debut solo album later this year. Some places you’ll be able to find Fred V in the coming months include his tour New Zealand in from 27th May-6th June, Hospitality On The Beach in Croatia in mid-July, Liquicity Festival in the Netherlands and Hospitality Weekend In The Woods this September.
