Canadian-born Fred Everything seems destined to take his place alongside house-music maestros like Mark Farina and Miguel Migs as a masterful purveyor of innovative and appealing deep house. His work shows a solid knowledge and thorough respect for the styles history and roots, as well as a refusal to be strictly bound by its conventions. That combination gives Everythings work an intriguing and adventurous quality that helps it stand out from the bulk of other deep-house devotees. Hes released several DJ mix albums, including an entry in the well-respected House of Om series, but its his artist album Lost Together, also on Om, that really sets him apart from the pack. Utilizing a number of guest vocalists, including NDea Davenport and Roy Davis Jr., Everything combines elements of R&B with sleek, sexy deep-house grooves to create a swinging, tight package of neo-soul goodness. Catch Fred Everything this Saturday, October 4, at Bar Standard, where he kicks off a series of Saturday house nights for the club.
