Who TF is Fred Again?

So who exactly is Fred Again?

Alrighty. Let’s start at the beginning. Fred Again is a South London-born musician. He produces EDM music (electronic dance music) and is an absolute king on the DJ decks. 

He’s been in the industry for quite some time now, working and producing under his real name Fred Gibson with artists like Charli XCX, Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, and the K-Pop band BTS. Just to name a few. 

According to a recent profile interview, music was always his number one goal. 

Fred attended the Wiltshire boarding school, Marlborough College in London, which has some pretty famous (and posh) alumni including Kate Middleton, Pippa Middleton, Princess Eugenie and Jack Whitehall. 

But his focus “rarely shifted from music”. Speaking to The Guardian, he said he would skip lessons in favour of spending time in the music room. 

It certainly worked in his favour.

According to The Tab, in 2019, almost 30 per cent of the number one singles in the UK charts were produced by him.

Then in 2020, Fred was awarded Best Producer at the Brit Awards. 

“The messages I read from people telling me how much [the albums] mean to them have changed my life,” he told The Guardian.

Fast forward to now, and Fred is going gangbusters after launching a solo career in 2020 under his performance moniker ‘Fred Again’. The 30-year-old musician has put a spell on techno and dance music enthusiasts, particularly Gen Zers. 

Back in mid-2022, the DJ made his debut performance at London’s Boiler Room, and tickets went like hotcakes.
