There is something about the samples and sounds of the disco era that make me nostalgic for the power of this music. It takes me back to my first disco experience – listening to my Dad’s Saturday Night Fever record. This was one of the best soundtracks of all time and it was my first real introduction to dance music even if I didn’t realize it at the time. When I first got a chance to hear Fred’s mixes and productions it brought me back to that time in my life. This is someone you should get into your music mix rotation…

Canadian DJ/Producer Fred Everything is a key player in the world of House Music and with 12 years in the music business and over 100 productions to his credit, he shows no signs of stopping. Born in Hull and raised in Quebec City, Fred got the early bug for electronic music in High School. He formed a few bands while spending his weekends as one of the youngest in local nightclubs. In the early 90s, he started playing live in raves and clubs in Canada. He was then known as “Everything,” because his live sets could range anywhere from techno to house, ambient and even drum and bass. He even got to open up for a then up and coming, Sasha. Tired of carrying his equipment around, mainly a TR909 and a SH101, he started DJ’ng and changed his name to Fred Everything. A move to the big city of Montreal was the next obvious thing, and it wasn’t too long after that Fred found himself releasing records on some of his favorite labels and catching the attention of DJ’s and producers worldwide.

His first major release got signed to UK label DIY in 1997. He also signed a few EP’s to Vinyl Peace in Toronto and the phone started ringing from labels left and right wanting to get an a piece of the new producer. But it was after giving a demo to 20:20 Vision boss Ralph Lawson in an after party in Toronto that things really got started for the young enthusiastic producer. Straight out of the plane in the UK, Ralph called him up and offered him a record deal. A few successful singles came out and the two talked about the next big step, a full length album. In 2000, while living in London, Fred released his first album “Under the Sun” on 20:20 Vision. The album was received as a breath of fresh air by the press worldwide and established Fred Everything as a name to watch. It was licensed to Virgin in Vienna and Tiga’s Turbo Records for North America. The follow up, “Light Of Day” (2004) also on 20:20 Vision, was cited as the best House album of the year by iDJ magazine in the UK. It featured artist such as Joseph Malik, Karl the Voice, Roy Davis and DJ Heather. Other collaborators throughout the years include: AtJazz, Mark Bell (Shaboom), The New Master Sounds, N’Dea Davenport (Brand New Heavies), Lisa Shaw, Tim Fuller, Olivier Desmet, JT Donaldson, Lance DeSardi, Tortured Soul, Joshua (Iz), Vincenzo, Andy Caldwell and many more. In 2003, Fred won best Electronic Artist at The Mimi’s award in Montreal.

Fred Everything’s productions have appeared on over 100 compilations worldwide by such various artists as Danny Tennaglia, Steve Lawler, Pete Tong, H-Foundation and Miguel Migs on labels like Defected, Ministry of Sound, NRK, Universal and countless Ibiza compilations.
