Fred V & Grafix - Sugar
Fred V & Grafix bring their second single into 2017; sonically in tune with the first glimpse of album three yet 'Sugar' shifts down from their ordinary drum & bass tempo into a bluesy, electric-guitar led oasis of lo-fi beats and electro-funk licks.
‘Sugar’ marries distorted vocal high-ranges from Fred V with a woozy backdrop of clicky drum pads and wavy synths. For those who’ve followed the pair’s journey since the days of ‘Major Happy’ will have noticed the incremental steps towards their high-in-the-clouds, signature sound. Now able to expertly reflect and interpret across different genres, the formidable duo confidently steps into new territory.
With live instrumentation being a trademark in their production it's inevitable that their uplifting, sought after DJ sets are now being transformed into an immersive live showcase. Standing as producers, musicians and vocalists Fred V & Grafix (Live) is set for London’s drum & bass extravaganza Hospitality In The Park and Lock & Load Festival in their hometown of Exeter. In the meantime, their packed DJ schedule will take them across every festival hotspot during the summer months. Watch this space…
