He’s a man of many names and aliases, but Freddie Cruger only has one mission - and that is to get the party started right. Ever since Freddie hit the scene a few years ago with a series of classic bangers, like Running From Love and his legendary D’Angelo rework Follow Me (as Red Astaire) the Swedish sizzler’s name has become synonymous with unapologetically funky business and dancefloor mayhem.
While his own music has been picked up by tastemaker labels like Tru Thoughts, Ubiquity and The Elephant (and his own Gamm Records), Freddie’s DJ currency has also continued to rise, as he has become deck partner of choice for the likes of Gilles Peterson, Quantic and many others.
Any thoughts of chilly Scandinavian climes will evaporate when Freddie hits Galatos for his one-off Auckland show. Trust me, this deck don will be bringing the heat and then some. You will be getting the finest in chunky hip-hop, dancefloor jazz, loose-limbed Latin and aromatically re-rubbed reggae, as the Stockholm sensei lets AK in on why his club nights have become amongst the most celebrated, out of any scene.
Dress to sweat and prepare yourself for a
unique chance to enjoy one of the finest party starters in
the game, this will be your only opportunity to check
Freddie Cruger dishing out the damage on the 1s and 2s in an
extended, full length set.
Don’t be horrified, Freddie hasn’t come to hurt you, the only thing you need to be frighted of is missing out.
Freddie Cruger with full support line-up, one night only at Galatos, miss it at your peril.
