A genuine staple in LA, Freddy Be has been delivering great music and first-rate events on the west coast since the early 90’s. From the creation of Monday Social (North America's longest running weekly house night) 20 years ago, to his awe-inspiring Earthdance Festivals (’97-03), his tireless efforts have been instrumental in defining the progress of Southern California's dance music culture. Freddy Be is a cornerstone for the global dance scene and continues to pioneer in the ever-evolving architecture of dance music.
As a DJ and purveyor of the underground, Freddy continues to leave his indelible impression on dance floor enthusiasts by keeping an ear on the pulse on the underground sound that lurks just beneath the mainstream consciousness. As dance music genres continue to expand and corporate festival promoters move away from the unadulterated and undeniable sound that is house music, Freddy has been a beacon in guiding newcomers while maintaining a vibrant following of loyal dance diehards and true believers.
Freddy Be's exceptionally pure sound energizes crowds with a deep sexy hybrid style, infusing a tech-house vibe with dark funky beats, rich melodies and psychedelic undertones. With more than two decades of experience behind the decks, his inspiration comes from an era of disc jockeys that pioneered the intricately layered, smooth beat-mixing style that has become a lost art in today’s dance music scene.
His exceptional track selection and expertly paced sets have allowed him to land residencies at Exchange LA, Audio SF, and Sound Nightclub as well as tour through cities across the US and major festivals including Coachella, Desert Hearts, BPM, and Minus Zero. No matter which dance music heavyweights he is sharing the stage with (Hot Since 82, Green Velvet, Sasha, Danny Tenaglia, Dubfire), Freddy's sets stand on their own with a fresh approach and stylistic identity.
After collaborating in the studio with Trent Cantrelle, Davi, and Freaky Chakra, 2016 is shaping up to be another strong year with the release of his track ‘Holding Back’ (including remixes by Funkagenda, Trent Cantrelle and Jody Wisternoff) on Darin Epsilon’s influential label Perspectives Digital. These productions have already been playlisted by Carl Cox, Hernan Cattaneo, James Zabiela, Sander Kleinenberg, Quivver and John Digweed on his massively popular ‘Transitions’ radio show.
A true master technician, Freddy Be’s unwavering passion to remain true to his roots has kept the lost art of the DJ very much alive. Even in the face of the lure of today’s celebrity global DJ and the ever changing landscape of dance music, Freddy is a force to be reckoned with, making him one of the most viable and relevant DJ’s within the Los Angeles club culture.
