Fred P.

Real Name:
Fred Peterkin
Profile:
Artist/DJ/Producer

anyone who followed the development of house music made in the usa in the last decade will certainly have met the art of fred peterkin aka fred p aka black jazz consortium.

since a while the new york city native that is working on his very own music for almost 20 years is on everyone's lips as he is releasing some of the gentlest soul infiltrated four-to-the-floor house creations you can get.

his musical set phrase isn't new or special as he is often simply melting shuffling percussions with elementary melodies. but he does it in a sense that the heavy used and abused phrase "deepness" finally gets a fresh truthfully new meaning.

as a man who danced in his younger years in legendary nyc clubs like the red zone, sound factory or tunnel to dj sets of larger-than-life selectors like david morales, frankie knuckles or danny tenaglia, he learned that sometimes less is more. and that he should rather listen to his heart and soul, then to the susurrus of the music market.

that is why you can call his house music journey music, music to travel. sometimes it is an introspective and meditative journey sometimes an inspirational and lively one. it always stays visionary while using simple codes to transform his inner voice into rhythms and melodies.

most of the eps and albums that he produced as fred p or black jazz consortium have been released via his very own label soul people music, which exists since ten years. as fred p he also dropped 12inches on jus-ed's underground quality imprint as well as on toshiya kawasaki's mule music label.

for the latter he now produced an album under the moniker of fp-oner that is listening to simply title "5". why it does so the man from nyc borough queens explains in the liner notes by himself. it is the start of a new trilogy that will lean more to the jazzier, relaxed and atmospherically side of his artistically deep house expressions.

At the moment, and for a while now, Fred P is imo the Pope of things deep and house in this world. Productions under his name or the Black Jazz Consortium monicker have the depth and grace of the timeless classics from the holy Balance/Prescription era of 1993-97, perhaps a little dryer and ruffer, but so are the times. Also he is arguably a fantastic DJ, with at least half a dozen online podcasts available as I type this, most starting with his signature vocal intro "You're now listening to soul...People...music...with your host...Fred...P" said with a voice that's both totally blunted and totally about to come ; then follows a fantastically selected, mixed and felt selection of deeper than superdeep housemusic delighting the listener's ears and souls. Here's a man who dedicated all his life and love to house music, and house music gave it back to him. Just listen and dance, you'll be blessed too :)
