F|O Points on this item

Said to have been "a mysterious bohemian Balearic singer/songwriter" who split time between London and Ibiza, little else is known about DRW. Set for 12" vinyl release back in 2006, the Red Astaire and DJ Vadim remixes of DRW's song Future were shelved at the time for various reasons. However, with the passing of Swedish beatmaster Red Astaire, aka Fredrik Lager, last year, NZ / UK label The Elephant have rescued the release from its limbo and are set to issue it on limited red vinyl this November. Get in quick. - Flying Out

“This Project Is to Benefit Freddie’s Children, With All Profits Going to His Two Sons in Sweden”

Fredrik Lager. Red Astaire. Freddie Cruger. Whatever name you know the renowned Swedish beat maestro by, his catalogue of dancefloor fillers has made him a firm favourite of DJs and dancers alike.

With fans including the likes of Gilles Peterson, Jazzy Jeff, Norman Jay and Erykah Badu, Freddie’s tunes have rung out from Sweden to the South Pacific, and everywhere in between, for decades.

Seminal cuts like the reggae-laced ‘Running From Love’ (Jugglin’ Records) and anthemic bossa and soul D’Angelo flip
 Follow Me’ (GAMM) are still a staple in many a DJ’s crate to this day, showing and proving that good music is timeless.

Freddie sadly passed away in June 2022, leaving family, friends and fans to mourn the passing of a man described by many as a tremendous talent and person, in equal measures

But in what’s a fitting tribute to a lost friend, a previously unreleased Red Astaire remix is about to see the light of day through The Elephant, an independent record label with roots in Aotearoa and the UK.

Red’s hallmark production, steeped in warmth and rhythm, are in full force on his remix of ‘Future’, a low-slung track by DRW — a mysterious bohemian Balearic singer/songwriter who was based between London and Ibiza in the noughties.

Originally set to be released on 12” vinyl in 2006 — backed with a remix from the one and only Russian percussionist DJ Vadim — the record never saw the light of day, shelved due to the rise of digital formats and DJing.

Now, in 2023, Freddie’s work will be getting the release it deserves, with The Elephant releasing ‘Future’ remixes on limited edition RED 12” vinyl (pre-orders) and digital formats are available now!
