Fred Everything – Brothers & Sisters/Legacy EP


Amazingly, it’s been 16 years since Canadian deep house producer Fred Everything dropped his first EP. It seems fitting, then, that his latest release is big chunk of ’90s nostalgia for unashamed revivalists Local Talk. Everything is an old hand at this kind of thing, of course, and it shows. Both versions of “Brothers & Sisters” bolt classic garage riffs and woozy vocal samples (and, in the case of the AM Pacific version, snaking synth-horns) onto the kind of snappy, swinging groove he probably knocks out in his sleep. The best of the lot, though, is “Legacy”, a flowery, near Balearic garage-house odyssey that sounds like it was inspired by 808 State’s “Pacific State”.
