Freddie Joachim started out as a dj/turntablist in 1996 spinning all sorts, but always had a strong focus on hip hop and jazz. In 2001, he turned his focus to recording and software based production. Freddie’s produced a whole load of jazzy instrumental hip hop albums & a crazy amount of remixes of hip hop classics, all of which can be downloaded for free on his website. His music has a very unique sound, his beats are very jazzy, often laced with beautiful piano & guitar samples and warm, perfectly crafted basslines. Whilst he has a sound that is very much his own which I highly recommend to all, I think fans of Kev Brown, Pete Rock and Japanese producers like Uyama Hiroto, Nujabes & Nomak will particularly enjoy his music.
Freddie has produced for many indie hip hop and soul artists, with releases in North America, Europe, and Asia. In Spring of 2008, he released his first full-length album entitled ‘In With Time’ for Japan, which featured artists such as Aloe Blacc, Blu, Lauren Santiago, and others. He also mentioned he is now working on a new instrumental album entitled ‘Midway’ that will be dropping sometime around June via San Francisco label, Mellow Orange. ‘Midway’ is going to be a third original compositions, and the rest sampled based beats. Apart from ‘Midway’, Freddie and Question are releasing a 10″ vinyl with a couple of tracks from the ‘Study Guide’ album around late Feb via the label Homegrown Blends & he’s also working with Lauren Santiago on her upcoming album.
