Fredfades wants you to have a ‘Summer of Love’ featuring Bendik HK
Oslo native Fredfades latest album ‘Caviar’ is a testament to the unwavering commitment to originality and an unflagging energy in the pursuit of musical perfection. Released through cult Norwegian label Mutual Intentions, the veteran DJ / producer assembles an all-star cast for a collection of club sounds that have defined his output for the past decade.
Fredfades’ music is all about attitude, evident in the evocative ‘Summer of Love’ featuring fellow countryman, Bendik HK. He says: “This is a song composed together with Norway’s very best drummer: Bendik HK and myself.
I recall forcing him to step out of his comfort zone to get stupid together and scrap all that intelligent stuff he would usually do on his own tracks. I gassed up the 909 to the max, found all the classic Korg M1 patches and we ended up creating some what of a tribute to the mid-90’s ‘Stock Sound House’ in the UK which I’m a big fan and serious collector of. Later on I reworked it for a night where me and Jawn Rice were sharing a couple bottles of wine. We reprogrammed the TR-727 percussion and added some reversed reverb on it before we saved the file and closed it. I had a third session in the file later on where I added more effects, a drum break and some vocal samples of a French girl moaning from a Proto-House 12″ from the late eighties.”
