Born in 1980 in Switzerland it took Fredy S. only four years to know what his passion is. Nothing inspired him more than sitting next to music speakers and listening to the vibes. The music of Jean-Michel Jarre and Kraftwerk led him into electronic music and he started mixing vinyls in 1992. Two years later Fredy S. got a resident contract at a club in Winterthur (Switzerland) and performed at several parties all over the country. And soon the bookings from abroad started to increase.
From the beginning Fredy S. knew what it means to delight the crowd with rhythmic and pulsative beats – on three decks for sure. The crowd went crazy. Due to his perfect technical skills Fredy S. soon got bookings from all over the world. For example, he played at the Nature One Festival in Germany, at the Latern Club in Bejing and several times at Streetparade in Zurich. He frequently toured through Europe and Asia and until today he performed on each continent, except the Antarctic. Anyone who knows Fredy S. also knows that he will fill that gap one day.
However, he kept his feet on the ground. He loves the big parties and festivals, just as he loves small, private parties, where he finds a passionate crowd of like-minded people. A three hours set is what works best for him, to come into one’s own. To furnish the dance floor with what the crowd combines with techno music, this is his real passion. And it is why he always did his own thing. Fredy S. fascinates his audience with incorporating various styles and transforms underground sounds into respectable music. He involves the audience, no matter what music they’re actually listening to, and presents sounds not only for a specific group, but for everyone.
But technical perfection is never good enough to Fredy S. He does everything to keep on improving, to implementing different techniques, to build in surprises and to acquire every possible and thinkable skill. Fredy S. loves working with vinyls and dissociates himself from any commercial sounds. He’s a real addictive and he could only be more connected to his Hardgroove Techno, if he would have been born as a vinyl.
Fredy S. was interviewed by many media including broadcast companies. He made live performances for several radio stations and enjoyed performing with other great artist as the mentioned Carl Cox, Jeff Mills, DJ Rush, Adam Beyer and many more. Giving the crowd what it wants, from one moment to another, the interaction with the audience, these things are permanent sources of inspiration for him. This inspiration also led him into promoting other artists and event organizers and into producing and releasing music.
If you want to do him a favor, just let him perform for several hours and on each day of his life. Because a life without DJing wouldn’t be a life for him. Fredy S. still has enough energy to perform for many decades and one day he would prefer to die on a stage. But until then, the show goes on and on and on – best in 135 beats per minute.
