It was 2013 when Fritz Carlton dropped it all in search of strange tones and quirky grooves, retreating to the depths of his San Francisco studio. Grueling days into nights at the helm earned him a deep knowledge of analogue synthesizers and a unique outlier sound he could call his own. Three years later Fritz has emerged as purveyor of wonky shades of House and long nights on the West-Coast’s darkest dancefloors.
His self-proclaimed ‘Weirdo-House’ sound has come to personify the bizarre scenes in which it was conceived. Hypnotic basslines, unconventional breaks and a dizzying sense of timing carries fans on a sometimes psychedelic, always strange journey from peaktime to sunrise; A flag-bearing genre of party-freaks from coasts-to-coast.
During his passionate treck through the minds and hearts of the underground, Fritz has remained true to an unabashed sense of sonic exploration and a clear rejection of the rules. With nothing off limits, this explosive talent looks towards to the future with a crazed smile on his face and an ear towards the sounds of tomorrow.
Fritz has released on a slew of labels during his tenure - including Desert Hearts, Dirtybird, Box Of Cats, My Techno Weighs A Ton, Club Sweat, and many others.
"one of the scene’s most exciting new producers" - Pulse Radio
"His tunes often maintain a frenetic, syncopated energy that's brought back to center by subtle grooves. I guess that's why they call him Fritz." - THUMP/VICE
"....the kind of spastic percussion and wonky sound design that has become a staple of Carlton’s sound" - Dancing Astronaut
