AFrijsfo Treats 10 – Chav and Dave»

Despite featuring on our first vinyl compilation with ‘Macked Out’, Chav and Dave never completed another release for Frijsfo. This doesn’t seem right, because along with Sully’s first 2step tracks and Atki2′s contributions to Werk Discs in 2006, the “terribly named” duo Chav and Dave inspired Frijsfo Beats’ conception as a record label. Some of us have come to terms with the fact that we’ll probably never witness one of their hilarious, legendary live shows again. However, years on, the ruff and ready old instrumentals still linger in the playlist, refusing to be forgotten. Made between 2003-2005, these pre-Frijsfo 2step classixxx by Chav and Dave are so much fun (and laden with uncleared samples) that we had to give them away.

AFrijsfo Treats 9 – Sully»

For Frijsfo Treats 9 we asked “the king of swing” Sully to mix up some 2step in support of Frijsfo Beats Volume 4, our new garage compilation. Rather than releasing one of his recent productions, Sully’s contribution ‘Feel It’ is actually an archive cut from 2008, Frijsfo’s fledgling year as a label and by all accounts a vintage year for Sully productions. Just listen back to ‘Phonebox’, ‘Trackside’, ‘Jackmans Rec’, ‘Broadway G’, and it’s clear he was onto something special and very much his own regardless of what it owed to classic garage and dubstep music. However, that’s history immortalised in the black wax, so instead of looking back we had a chat about where Sully is at musically in 2014, and this new mix of his. You can stream it on mixcloud or click the image to download:

FRIJSFO: Your contribution to Frijsfo Beats Volume 4, ‘Feel It’, is from 2008, a vintage year for Sully beats. You’ve done loads with your music since, what are you working on at the moment?

AFrijsfo Treats 8 – Erra»

If you’ve been on the Nottingham scene or kept close track of Geiom’s Berkane Sol imprint, you may already know a little bit about Erra – the cake-loving Sega-playing grime-&-garage-raving producer. If not, while we anticipate his label debut, let us introduce him by presenting his cold and heavy new mix as Erra enters another Special Stage with his music. Stream Erra’s Frijsfo Treat or click the image to download, and listen while you read our Q&A below…

 

FRIJSFO: You’ve been on our radar for a while now… what have you been up to since the Stax / Jookup 12” came out on Berkane Sol?

ERRA: Yo! Musically not a huge amount in all honesty, I’ve been writing bits on and off since the Berkane Sol 12”, trying to gather a nice lengthy catalogue of finished trax which is still an ongoing process. I guess the stuff I’m writing currently has an aesthetic which has always been present in the stuff I’ve written, only now swinging more heavily towards a clangier, icier, Grime infused sound; music which is kind of lost/unsure of itself in a way, seasick riddims if you like.

AFrijsfo Treats 6 – Martin Kemp»

Martin Kemp generously offers one of the best Frijsfo Treats yet in this ace DJ mix, which is packed with upfront and unreleased music from the likes of Beneath, Shy One, his brother Brackles, and more – including Dusk & Blackdown’s ‘Wicked Vibes’. All three of the bloody delicious tracks from Kemp’s new vinyl, the ‘German Salad’ EP feature too.

The mix is short at just over 30 minutes, but Martin prefers it this way – “I think mixes are better shorter. Who really needs an hour. I could do another”, he says.  Surely he will, meanwhile you should download and enjoy this one.

AFrijsfo Treats 5 – Point.B»

The fifth in our series of free music from Frijsfo Beats artists is a real treat, and comes in the form of a live recording from one of Point B’s most recent shows. It was at Bristol’s legendary underground club Cosies, where he, DJ Oslek, and Sclist came together to launch his new album ‘The Veld‘. One of the seemingly few electronic musicians who actually performs his music live in a club setting rather than just mixing tracks on a laptop, this has been an important part of Point B’s creative process for years. Testing out new ideas, beats, and melodies on the fly, he takes inspiration from club crowds and sound-systems before tweaking and twisting them into full tracks later on in the studio.

AFrijsfo Treats 4 – Cardopusher»


The fourth in our sporadic series of free music and sound give-aways is a straight up DJ set from the one and only Cardopusher. He recorded this mix for Frijsfo Beats in August, during a hectic summer otherwise spent performing throughout Europe and prolifically producing and promoting an incredibly strong string of original releases. Remarkably, Cardopusher has managed to release new music every month of 2011 so far, including Frijsfo favourite ‘Yr Fifteen Minutes Are Up‘ on Tigerbeat6 (one of Read More »
