The alias of British electronic musician Fred Gibson, Fred again.. has emerged as one of the breakout producers of the past couple years with a steady string of addictive singles that culminated earlier this year with the release of his debut full-length album Actual Life (April 14 - December 17 2020). The album followed high-profile collaborations alongside a wide array of artists including FKA twigs, Headie One, Stormzy, Brian Eno, Underworld, The xx, and more, and showcased his knack for manipulating heart-tugging samples and turning them into euphoric, infectious, riveting anthems with hope-filled lyrics celebrating life, resilience and connection.
In Fred's own words, his brilliant guest DJ mix "was made on the long train up to Scotland from London. And it was a really peaceful and therapeutic experience. It's made of voice-notes with my friends, full songs, early demos and a couple bootlegs. Thank you and big love to KEXP. I hope you enjoy."
