|Fred with opener Goldroom while switching between sets|
Hey everyone. Got to check out Fred Falke playing at the Blockley in Philadelphia last night. If you've seen Fred before, you know it's a treat. Fred combines standard DJing through Ableton Live with live bass playing. It adds a really fun element into the mix and it's not your standard "turn knobs all night" affair. He's got a huge selection of fantastic tracks and remixes to choose from, so there's never a dull moment in the set. He even mixed in some funky drum and bass just to keep things interesting.
Some highlights for me include "Reaching Out", which is a Hall and Oates/Nero mix, which builds up to jumping moments. There's also the always popular remix of Robyn, which takes "Dancing On My Own" from a pumping pop song into a smoother, bassier affair.
Also, have to give a shoutout to Goldroom who opened with an excellent set of his own.
Be sure to check the rest of Fred's upcoming tour dates on here on Facebook. Seriously, I wouldn't miss any of these.
