Music is a spiritual language; it’s how the soul uses vibrations to communicate with the outside world. Freqish believes dance music should be no different. By getting instrumentalists of all walks involved in his creative process, he captures the raw energy of a live band in a four-on-the-floor sound that’s as real as it gets.
With 20+ years as a DJ/producer and 11 years as a studio engineer while holding a two-year residency at Sound-Bar, he started the Freqish project in early 2020. His releases under the project soon found homes on key labels like Gettoblaster’s We Jack, DJ Dan’s InStereo Recordings, Claude VonStroke’s Dirtybird Records, Florida Imprint Ravesta Records, iconic NY labels Nervous Records and King Street Sounds as well as their sub label Street King.
In addition to the aforementioned artists, Freqish songs have been rinsed by the likes of Claude VonStroke, Worthy, VNSSA, Claptone, Shiba San, Martin Garrix, Jamie Jones, Tommie Sunshine, Bad Boy Bill, DJ Craze, Gettoblaster, DJ Heather, AC Slater, Vanilla Ace, and Danny Howard via BBC Radio 1. They’ve also been rinsed by fellow Dirtybird signee CODES, who brought the rising talent on to perform for a February 2021 installment of his live-streamed series, CODES House, before making his debut appearance at Dirtybird Campinn 2021. Since then Freqish has played various events across the U.S. and Mexico. His sets are always different and you will often hear new productions that you can't experience anywhere else but a live show.
It’s not uncommon for Freqish to dream about a track and get up in the middle of the night to lay down the groundwork in his studio. As far as he’s concerned though, the song isn’t final until more artists are in the mix. He sees his approach not only as a way to bring new sounds to a genre in which samples of samples of have become the norm, but as an avenue to help build the careers of a growing community of musicians.
One thing is for sure: The name Freqish merits a mention in any list of artists breathing new life into dance music. Count on him to keep the vibe moving forward to elevate hearts and souls.
