Frampton has a hallowed history, having cut his teeth in London’s seminal nightclubs of the 1990s and finding success with his ventures into production. Holding down residencies at many of the capital’s top venues and later playing abroad regularly as a touring DJ, he made a big name for himself before he decided to take an indefinite hiatus.

Inevitably here was only so long he could resist the call of his beloved house music, though. He took a year out of his day job to get back in the music zone after realising that something was missing. ‘It was a thrilling, soul searching experience’, he says, ‘dusting off the record collection, dabbling with early 1930s blues recordings, and giving them a unique twist on today’s current sound. I love to delve into musical genres, follow my instinct and see what comes out the other side. I’m currently in the experimental stage, and it’s amazing, there are no rules or boundaries, I can create my own pleasure, then share with everyone else’. Also a keen guitarist, his skill with the instrument gives him a solid grounding in musical theory and intuition.
Freddie Frampton, is soon to launch his own label: HOT2DROP. With the likes of Adam Beyer, Hot Since 82, Sasha, Danny Tenaglia, Solardo, and Danny Howard all supporting his last smash Black Betty, the resurgent artist has set about rapidly re-establishing himself since returning to the fold.
The new imprint will allow him complete creative control, which is particularly useful for an artist like him who loves to push different sounds and styles across his output. ‘I’m super excited to be launching HOT2DROP, my new record label and most importantly, a vehicle for creative expression’ he says. ‘HOT2DROP will provide the freedom to release whatever I want, whenever I want. The primary focus of HOT2DROP is based on creating quality house music, that makes you shut the f@%k-up and dance’.
