Fred Gibson, AKA electronic producer Fred Again.., has released a new track called ‘Jungle’ – check it out below.
The track – which contains a sample of Elley Duhé’s 2017 track ‘Immortal’ and also features a production co-credit from Four Tet’s Kieran Hebden – follows Fred’s February team-up with I. JORDAN (formerly India Jordan) ‘Admit It (U Don’t Want 2)’.
Prior to that, Fred released two albums in 2021 – his April debut ‘Actual Life (April 14 – December 17 2020)’ and November’s follow-up ‘Actual Life 2 (February 2 – October 15 2021)’.
Listen to ‘Jungle’ below:
Speaking on his previous collaboration with I. JORDAN, Fred wrote: “It was such an effortless joy working with India on this. We made it in like three sessions and finished it on the rooftop where I live. It was sick that like while we were working on it India could go and road test it and we ended up evolving the tune based on the reaction.
“We both wanted to make something that just honoured the feeling of hearing ‘u don’t want 2…..admit that it hurts you’ in a rave. That line really resonated with us.”
In a four-star review of ‘Actual Life 2’, NME wrote: “From ‘Hannah (The Sun)’ onwards, the second half of the record resembles a warm, comforting embrace as Fred finally allows those closest to help him.
“The epiphanic optimism and ravey utopia of ‘Tanya (Maybe Life)’, ‘Marco (And Everyone)’ — which cleverly gathers snippets of the previous tracks in a montage style over a bass-heavy beat — and the rapturous ‘Billie (Loving Arms)’ emphasise the curing power of physical intimacy while reassuring us and Fred that everything’s going to be OK.”
