Fred Everything (Lazy Days Recordings)

Last Night a DJ Saved My Life

 

The more I pull together these tribute/info pages on key producers and DJs the more I come to realise how very reclusive some of the more established names are and Fred Everything is a total unknown to me other than a handful of tracks I have, most I think are on classic labels like Buzzin Fly (what a label that was), so in researching Fred, this is as much news to as many of you, no doubt.

 

Fred Everything (born Frédéric Blais in Hull, Quebec) is a French-Canadian electronic musician and DJ, best known for his work in the deep house music genre.

 

He was interested in synthesis and editing techniques from an early age, later going on to perform in several live bands and compose music for theatre. His interest in dance music began with the acid house movement, particularly UK label Warp Records' releases - and as everyone knows, Warp was another incredible label.

 

The early 90s saw him 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. Fred Everything's career as a DJ began in 1993, when he opened for Sasha at the Metropolis club night in Montreal. He moved to Montreal in 1996, where he released many records under various record labels, including 20:20 Vision, with whom he went on to release a total of 20 records including his widely successful album "Under the Sun" in 2000.

 

Fred Everything became well know in Europe in 1997 when he performed at a festival in Glasgow, Scotland. Two years later, he moved to London for three months to do an extended European tour whilst also doing production work with numerous other Deep House artists, including AtJazz, Nigel Hayes and Bougie Soliterre.

 

Towards the end of the 90s, a remix of Derrick Carter's "Life Is Like A Circle", as well as the release of Under the Sun gave Fred Everything more popularity as a remixer. He went on to remix lots of tracks includingRoy Davis Jnr.'s track "Watch Them Come”.

As well as his production work, he also wrote articles on house music for the San Francisco-based music journal XLR8R.

 

In 2005 he founded his own label, Lazy Days Recordings, which has a discography like a who’s who of house music! Well worth checking it out.

 

His own discography includes labels like Solemusic, Shaboom, 20:20, Seasons, OM, Naked Music, Urban Torque, Atjazz, Salted Music, Buzzin Fly
