HYBRID PERFECTION: DJ/PRODUCER, GEORGE FITZGERALD
George Fitzgerald first caught our ears with an impossibly smooth remix of one of our adolescent favorites – Groove Theory’s “Tell Me”. Admittedly, singer Amel Larrieux’s silky vocals were the perfect material for such a remix. Though he’s been releasing music for about three years – the first being on Scuba’s Hotflush label in 2010 – the producer, DJ, and label boss has a sound that’s perfectly polished, exhibiting a finesse that peers in the industry have taken many years to develop. We’re huge fans of his hybrid sound melding together deep house, 2 step and techno, and we’re not alone. Earlier this year, Fitzgerald was selected to do an Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1, and later was featured on the “In New DJs We Trust” program–a sure sign of a rising star and where many a DJ and producer have showcased their talent to an eager global audience.
We’re happy to announce that he’ll be playing this Sunday at Medusa and have picked out some jams and mixes for you to listen to in preparation, if you aren’t already hyped up like we are:
Groove Theory – ‘Tell Me (George Fitzgerald Remix)’
George Fitzgerald – ‘I Can Tell (By The Way You Move)’
