French CanadianDJ/Producer Fred Everything is a key player in the world of House Music with two decades in the music businessand 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 youngestkid in local nightclubs. In the early 90s, he started playinglive in raves and clubs across Canada. He was then known simply as “Everything,” becauseof the eclectic nature of his sets, which would include Techno,House, Ambient and even Drum & Bass. A highlightof that period was openingfor Sasha at Metropolis in Montreal. Tired of carryinghis 909 and 101 around, he started to DJ more activelyand 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 legendaryInbeat Record Store. It wasn’t too long after, that Fred found himself releasing on some of his favoritelabels and touring internationally.
His firstreleases came out on labelssuch as DIY (UK), Vinyl Peace and ultimately 20:20Vision, which launchedFred’s career in the UK and worldwide. He relocatedto London in 1999 to complete his first LP, “Under The Sun” (2000) and expand his touring territory. Considereda breath of fresh air by the press worldwidealbum, 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 Americaand 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 growingmomentum as a producercame numerous remix requests.He was asked to remix esteemedpeers such as Mood 2 Swing,Dennis Ferrer, DerrickCarter, Kings of Tomorrow, RobertOwens and Roy Davis as well as cross over artistslike Corrine Bailey Ray, N’Dea Davenport (BrandNew Heavies), MeshellN'Dgeocello, Jazzanova, LadybugMecca (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 compiledinto 3 albums, “From The
Deep” (Bombay Records, 2001), “Om Masters”(Om Records,2010) and “Re-Works” (R2 Records/K7, 2015), the latest receivingrave reviewsincluding Album Of The Week in DMC Update (UK) , Album Of The Month in Tillatemagazine (UK) and compilation of the month in Mixmag (UK).

His musicwas also used heavily for shows on MTV and was licensed to Virgin Airlines for their onboard entertainment system.
Out of frustration with certain A&R decisions, he decided to start his own imprint,Lazy Days Recordings in 2005 to release his own music and that of his close friends. The first release, Friday (Remixed by Trentemoller) became an instant classic and is still to this day the best selleron the label.

In 2007, he moved to San Francisco to finish his third studio album “Lost Together” (Om Records, 2008) which featured collaborations with N’DeaDavenport, Lisa Shaw,Roy Davis Jr, Tortured Soul, Wayne Tennantand Tim Fuller. It was recordedin Montreal, Vancouver, New York, Tokyo, San Franciscoand Hollywood at Raphael Saadiq’s BlakesleeStudio. The album featured Mercylesswhich became an underground anthem worldwide and particularly in South Africa, due in part to the Atjazz Remix that still gets played regularlyto this day. It was the pinnacle of the relationship with Om Records, after previousreleases and remixes including a mix CD in the popular “House Of Om” Series in 2006, which led to a 25 date tour of the US in 2008 and international appearances in label nights in Ibiza, Barcelona and Tokyo.
