Part of the The Warehouse Project takeover
Anyone who followed the development of house music made in the USA over the last decade will certainly have met the art of Fred Peterkin aka Fred P aka Black Jazz Consortium. The New York producer has been involved with music since childhood. Growing up in Flatbush, Brooklyn, Fred was exposed to a multitude of different genres; from R&B, funk, rock & roll, hip-hop and electro all the way through to disco of the early 80s.
He comes from a family of musicians, so his path into music isn’t beyond imagination. However, his approach isn’t in the traditional sense – drawing upon science and philosophy to sculpt his sound, many refer to his music as ‘journey music’. Dreamy deep house, soulfully inflected techno and a unique fresh take on future jazz is his calling card to the listener.
This maybe the reason why Fred P is not content to release singles, having made six albums since 2007 through both main aliases and more. His most recent LP was released on his own imprint Soul Music People earlier this year. Escapism hearkens Peterkin’s ability to speak through his music and emote thought and feelings while making you dance.
This twenty plus year veteran continues to bring thoughtful music to the forefront with a message that has meaning standing the test of time. Recently adding live presentations to his resume, Peterkin evolves his creative vision into a experience for the mind, body and soul. As he prepares for his performance at The Warehouse Project later this year, he shares with us a selection of otherworldly muses for what he calls inspirations/aspirations.
