Its almost here. The kick off to the best week of the year, Bass Week. Starting the week in the grandest of ways we are lucky to have the epic Hospitality Tour touch down in Toronto on Friday, March 21st. This year Hospital Records has sent the veteran, Danny Byrd, the talented S.P.Y and the increasingly powerful up and comers Fred V & Grafix who have just released a new single titled 'Recognise.'
The latter duo of the Hospitality roster have been on the rise during the past couple years, but it was truly in 2013 that the duo really began to take flight. Almost a year ago to date the pair released their debut solo single on Hospital Records, bringing us their "Goggles" EP. This release was met with great success as their sound had already began to reach the masses, through their tracks 'Purple Gates' and 'Major Happy' which were released on separate Hospital compilations.
Now a year later since their debut EP, Fred V & Grafix have released their first single 'Recognise' off of their debut album of the same name. Preparing for a massive hometown launch party in Exeter alongside label mates Camo & Krooked, London Elektricity and Metrik this tune provides a perfect idea of what to expect from the full length LP. Opening with perfectly crafted melodies on top of crisp percussion, it becomes easy to see how their production skills have found a spot alongside the pros. This is especially evident when you hear the soulful vocals emerge on the record and then learn that it is the voice of Fred V himself.
'Recognise' is available now both on vinyl and as digital download. On the vinyl you will receive the single as well as a hauntingly strong neurofunk remix on the flip brought to you by Emperor. With the digital download you receive the Emperor remix, a Panda remix as well as both the original and its radio edit.
Grab the release and familiarize yourself with the new sounds of Fred V & Grafix and get yourself ready for Projek: Hospitality on Friday March 21st as we kick off the 4th Annual Bassweek.
