About

Fred Spider is a Musician (Hammond, Fender Rhodes, Clavinet), Dj since 1984, Music Producer, & Artistic Director.
Originally born in Lyon (France), he lived Barcelona from 2005 where he started the project "The Jivers" and now lives Cape Town since 2010 were he opened Club Voom Voom.

Fred Spider turned himself to an eclectic style. He took his inspiration from polymorphous beats and dancing grooves, trying to spread his well known good mood on the dancefloor (Jazz, 50's R'n'B, rare soul, deep funk, brazilian beats, Latin kicks, deep house, soulful drum'n'bass, breaks and broken beats, nu-jazz..).

Fred has also woven his spider web worldwide (over 28 countries like China, Japan, Argentina, Usa, Uk...) and shared the turntables with some of the greatest dj's as Gilles Peterson, Bob Sinclar, Mr Scruff, Dimitri From Paris and even Daft Punk.

Originally born in Lyon (France), Fred Spider became addicted to music after having listened to the jazz organist "Jimmy Smith". From then on he always has been an active member of the huge family of music and started djaying in 1984, where he created his first band and played in the so-called fashion and "Mods" parties.
Whereas a lot of musicians specialize themselves in a unique style music, which could be sometimes restrictive, Fred Spider turned himself to an eclectic style. He took his inspiration from polymorphous beats and dancing grooves, trying to spread his well known good mood on the dancefloor (Jazz, 50's R'n'B, rare soul, deep funk, brazilian beats, Latin kicks, deep house, soulful drum'n'bass, breaks and broken beats, nu-jazz..).

He created his first label "Rotax" in 1997 (with Pascal Rioux (Favorites Records), Teddy G (Jazz Up) and Philgood (Jazz FM)) and "Plein Gaz Productions" in 1998 and started to produce a lot of varied-style artists going from nu-jazz to break, broken beat, with some other releases of hip-hop or drum'n'bass (14 releases). He produces as well his own band called "Colorblind" (6 musicians), which is a "colorfull" ambitious project melting together electronic sounds with organic grooves. He created others labels like "2Siders" or "Blindtest".

Moreover, Fred has also woven his spider web worldwide and played in different countries such as Usa * Japan * China * South Africa * Uk * France * Italy * Turkey * Switzerland * Scotland * Argentina * Germany * Austria * Holland * Sweden * Hungary * Spain * Portugal * Mauritius Island * Reunion Island * Slovaquia
