Veteran Dutch producers Pako & Frederik have been pegged to inaugurate Global Underground’s original artist’s repertoire imprint, Global Underground Music with a stunning 11 track outing that spans spectrum of cutting edge, funked-up, break-laced music.
Frederik bought his first house records at the age of fourteen, started mixing at the age of sixteen, and at eighteen he released his tracks under his own label Gyrate records. The same year, he entered the house party scene playing his first gigs. Soon after, he gained European recognition as a DJ - with appearances ranging from the UK to Italy. As a grafitti artist Pako was influenced by his record collection of mid- eighties hip-hop/electro; he soon broadened his musical outlook after being introduced to house music. This introduction led him to compile his own collection of twelve inches, resulting in his first gig in 1993. Production work in the studio followed soon after.
Pako & Frederik first crossed paths in 1992, through an introduction by a mutual friend. But it took a 1993 meeting to bring their two styles together. The place: a studio in the south of France. The result: the birth of their first collaboration (with Remy): "Vauvenage". From this moment on Pako and Frederik joined forces to produce numerous club-hits. Their musical style attracted many; gaining them a spot on playlists from international DJ's such as Carl Cox, Sasha, John Digweed, Derrick May, Danny Howells, and Derrick Carter and tracks included on compilations mixed by all of the aforementioned. This world-wide recognition soon led to numerous requests for their remix work. Live-sets and DJ-gigs have also brought Pako & Frederik to the USA, playing in cities like San Francisco, Chicago, Miami and Orlando. Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
