Fred Everything (Lazy Days, MTL)
French Canadian DJ/Producer Fred Everything is a key player in the world of House Music with two decades in the music business and a discography of more than 200 releases to his credit. Born in Hull and raised in Quebec City, Fred caught the bug early for electronic music in high school, working summer jobs washing dishes to buy his first synths. He then formed a few bands while spending his weekends as the youngest kid in local nightclubs. In the early 90s, he started playing live in raves and clubs across Canada. He was then known simply as “Everything,” because of the eclectic nature of his sets, which would include Techno, House, Ambient and even Drum & Bass. A highlight of that period was opening for Sasha at Metropolis in Montreal. Tired of carrying his 909 and 101 around, he started to DJ more actively and changed his name to ‘Fred Everything’. A move to the big city of Montreal was the next obvious thing, where he landed a job at the city’s legendary Inbeat Record Store. It wasn’t too long after, that Fred found himself releasing on some of his favorite labels and touring internationally.
His first releases came out on labels such as DIY (UK), Vinyl Peace and ultimately 20:20 Vision, which launched Fred’s career in the UK and worldwide. He relocated to London in 1999 to complete his first LP, “Under The Sun” (2000) and expand his touring territory. Considered a breath of fresh air by the press worldwide album, the album established Fred Everything as a name (an artist?) to watch. The album was licensed to Virgin in Vienna and Tiga’s Turbo Records for North America and featured a video of the single “Revolution”. His follow up LP, “Light Of Day” (2004) also on 20:20 Vision, was cited as the best House album of the year by DJ magazine (UK). It took over from where the first album left off, but with the featuring of added artists such as Joseph Malik, Karl the Voice, Roy Davis and DJ Heather. Fred was then invited to perform the album with a live Band at the prestigious Montreal International Jazz Festival and also won Best Electronic Artist award at the MIMI’s that year.
With the growing momentum as a producer came numerous remix requests. He was asked to remix esteemed peers such as Mood 2 Swing, Dennis Ferrer, Derrick Carter, Kings of Tomorrow, Robert Owens and Roy Davis as well as cross over artists like Corrine Bailey Ray, N’Dea Davenport (Brand New Heavies), Meshell N'Dgeocello, Jazzanova, Ladybug Mecca (Digable Planets) and the late, great Curtis Mayfield. He also had a few successful unofficial remixes floating around on vinyl at the time for the likes of Missy Elliot, Erykah Badu, Outkast, N’dea Davenport and MIA. His remixes were compiled into 3 albums, “From The
Deep” (Bombay Records, 2001), “Om Masters” (Om Records,2010) and “Re-Works” (R2 Records/K7, 2015), the latest receiving rave reviews including Album Of The Week in DMC Update (UK) , Album Of The Month in Tillate magazine (UK) and compilation of the month in Mixmag (UK).
Successful in the licensing department, his productions have appeared on over 150 compilations worldwide by various artists such as Danny Tennaglia, Steve Lawler, Pete Tong, H-Foundation and Miguel Migs on labels like Fabric, Defected, Ministry of Sound, NRK, Universal and countless Ibiza compilations. His music was also used heavily for shows on MTV and was licensed to Virgin Airlines for their onboard entertainment system.
