Luv Neva Fades

A 6 track house album (8m 54s) — released August 7th 2020 on Mutual Intentions

To say Fredfades and Jawn Rice are House music producers would be sneering at their efforts across genres like Hip Hop, Soul, and Jazz.

The Mutual Intentions collaborators have forged a sound together in classic House, siphoning a myriad of influences through their intricate constructions in the studio as solo acts since first meeting in 2007. Becoming fast friends over a shared love of the dusty beats of an SP1200, Jawn Rice and Fredfades started working together while the Mutual Intentions collective gestated around them. Individual works by Jawn and Fred dot the collective's back catalogue like various nodes of evolution through the course of MI's output.

"We've always been sharing sketches," explains Jawn Rice, "but I feel that these past years have been more productive in getting some of these sketches out as songs with Fredrik. It's just a continuation of our friendship." Emboldened by this friendship and with their finely tuned skills in the studio, honed to near-perfection, they eventually started making music together. Following two seminal solo LPs – Fredfades' Warmth and Jawn Rice's Highlights – the pair consolidated their music as a duo in 2019, striking out with their electrifying debut, Jacuzzi Boyz. In a fusion between Jawn's electronic inclinations and Fred's soulful eccentricities, Jacuzzi Boyz established the duo as a new force working New Release Information within the broad scope of House music, with a sound imbued in the origin story of House and the genre's hip-hop allegiances.

In 2020 they continue to pursue music together in the sophomore LP, Luv Neva Fades. Following the release of the title track and lead single, Luv Neva Fades finds the producers cementing their artistic voice and re-enforcing their commitment to a singular sound. Lush Rhodes keys and bouncing percussion lay the foundations for the album, while buoyant bass-lines and sparkling synthesisers provide the catalyst for a crooning vocal or ruminating melody. It's a record that thrives in a sultry mood; an LP that basks in the warmth of its analogue origins and cools in the shade of languid chord progressions.

Like Jacuzzi Boys, this album is an extended collaborative affair, as Mutual Intentions' reach stretches across the Atlantic with guest appearances from Byron the Aquarius, Javonntte, Arthur Kay, Bendik HK and the SP1200 that started it all. Shimmering melodies, hazy harmonies and boisterous beats draw Fredfades and Jawn Rice out of the jacuzzi and onto the dance floor, moving under shimmering stars, where the duo cement what they started with Luv Neva Fades.
