London-based producer George FitzGerald straddles the lines between house, garage and bass, masterfully marrying contrasting styles together to create a sound that is distinct to his style. The genre-defying FitzGerald built his name on the scene as a co-promoter of Man Make Music, the London party that has been showcasing a little bit of everything since its inception back in 2007. With releases on Hotflush, Aus, and his own imprint, ManMakeMusic, his productions combine both the warmer, melodic sides of house and garage with the more heated, pounding drum patterns of dubstep and techno, all with exceptional style and grace. FitzGerald’s hallmarks are evident in his measurement, his unmatched awareness of light and space and his use of searing chord lines.
FitzGerald was recently featured on BBC Radio One’s Future Stars of 2013 Essential Mix series, amongst the likes of Perseus and Jonas Rathsman, Duke Dumont, which is included above. Towards the end of the mix you can hear some of his productions that made him a well known name here at OXD such as the massive hit ‘Child,’ and his glittery remix of Jessie Ware’s ‘No To Love.’
Earlier in the evening we’ll be at Escort’s live show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. After an evening of classic and modern disco, FitzGerald’s blend of house, garage and bass will keep us dancing through the night.
