The deep house don from Queens steps up to the plate for this week's RA podcast.
If you've been paying any attention to the new wave of house music producers that have been springing up in and around New York over the last few years, the chances are that you'll already be very familiar with the work of one Fred Peterkin. Releasing both as Fred P and also under his Black Jazz Consortium moniker, Peterkin been responsible for some of the smoothest and most evocative four-to-the-floor tracks to come out of the Big Apple over the past decade, coupling his intense, shuffling percussion with simple but effective melody lines that hit you right where it hurts.
Having witnessed New York's house music legacy firsthand in clubs such as The Red Zone, Sound Factory and Tunnel, Fred has plenty of dance floor experience to draw from, but his own sound is much more introspective than what we've come to expect from the city's house sound. This is none more apparent than on last year's Structure full-length as Black Jazz Consortium, which featured into our Top 20 albums of '09 poll and paved the way for an increasing number of live outings across the Atlantic. These shows, along with a sterling mix for Underground Quality's night at Berlin's Tape, have quickly bolstered his reputation as a force to be reckoned with behind the decks, so we thought we'd give him another chance to showcase his turntable skills on this week's RA podcast.
