FRED P AKA BLACK JAZZ CONSORTIUM
For the past 20 years New York City native Fred P has been releasing some of the most soul infiltrated four-to-the-floor house creations you will hear. 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. That is why you can call his house music journey music. 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 has been around for over 10 years. As Fred P he also dropped 12 inches on Jus-Ed’s Underground Quality imprint as well as on Toshiya Kawasaki’s Mule Music label.
Dexter is above all a music lover. He has worked in record shops, hosted radio shows and is one of Lisbon’s best known and most respected DJs. He started playing in small bars in Bairro Alto, during the mid- 90’s, and is a resident & talent buyer at Lux since 1999, hosting nights like Disorder, Strawberry Force Fields Forever, Ming and most recently StardustBalls and Planck at Gare Club, in Oporto. Each project, each night, has its own identity. This is Dexter’s USA debut.
