Fred Giannelli

Real Name:
Fred Giannelli
American electronic musician, born 1960 in Lowell, Massachusetts, USA. He began experimenting with electronics in the late '70s as Turning Tranz, but a 1984 meeting with Psychic TV's Genesis P. Orridge at his local radio station changed his direction. By 1988, Giannelli was part of the group, working on Techno Acid Beat and Kondole. He gradually separated himself from Psychic TV and began working on the Plus 8 label with Richie Hawtin as Spawn. Under the Plus 8 banner, he later formed the Telepathic label for his own industrial/techno recordings as the Acid Didj, Giannelli, Deneuve and Mazdaratti (which are collected on Telepathic's Telepathic Wisdom, Vol. 1.)

Might be a master at his craft, However his behavior recently esp attacking Gen on Youtube and other places.. leads me to think that, losing his mind... let it go sir! & grow up.

Fred is a brilliant techno producer and live act. His discography is far more comprehensive than listed in here, but not even he himself has a comprehensive release list of all his recordings. While his former band Psychic TV is said to have invented the term and the style "acid house" then this is Fred´s work. His releases do not seem to get boring or repeat themselves, also there´s a huge list of collaborations he´s done (r. hawtin, c. lekebusch, just to name a few). and - for me - the most important point of all: fred shows much humour, in real life as well as in his releases. a highlight surely was his release "R. U. Xperienced" as Careese & Sickmob, where he covered the Jimi Hendrix classic. The vocals were done by a little girl (one of the daughters of Genesis P-Orridge), and now imagine this girl voice singing: "Are you experienced? Have you ever been experienced? Well i am." - That´s what i meant with humour and thats what makes Fred so great.

This man is a true musical genious. From his work with Psychic TV to the work on his solo material and remixes, the man is one of the true masters of techno and deserves alot more respect then he gets.
