Salvatore Freda
From: SWITZERLAND
Salvatore Freda

Salvatore Freda was born in 1978 in the city of Lausanne, Switzerland. Lausanne
might be better known outside frontiers as a capital of the Olympic Games than for
its appeal on the electronic music scene. However something has changed in these
last years and Salvatore is not innocent to that new enlightment,
musically-speaking.

His "savoir-faire" and creativity have been snatched on some of the finest labels,

no less than historic, if you think about Freerange, Dessous, Music Man, Trapez and
Cadenza. Filling the dj-box of the brightest artists that the techno planet can
contemplate; Derrick May, Laurent Garnier, Luciano, Richie Hawtin, Dennis Ferrer,
Louie Vega, and Pete Tong to name a few. Salvatore always strives to surprise
auditors with exciting and forward-thinking projects. Freedom and open-mindness are
kind of a philosophy to him. However, if there's something everyone has in mind
about Salvatore's music, it is his sense of the groove. An unimitable "touché" that
gives a specific character to his large music vision. His main inspiration comes
from the sense of futurism behind Detroit Techno music, and the funkyness inside
Chicago House. Also, both of these traditions are constantly redefined by Salvatore
and transposed into a post-modern aesthetic. It might be called
deep house or hypnotic techno, every song has to tell a new story.

If you have heard of Salvatore only in the past few years it doesn't mean he is a so
called "newcomer". He has built a rich and solid profile through the years, starting
back in the early 90's, collecting vinyls at the young age of 12. He got deeply into
electronic sounds after a first flashing clubbing experience with his older sisters
during summer holidays in Italy in 1989. Lil' Louis "french kiss" and Inner City's
"good life" are some of the first records he could buy at the local supermarket.

His expanding passion got him to move behind the decks, when he was a teenager, to
play his own selection for dancers. This could only happen in the few equiped bars
downtown at first, while waiting for the legal age to hit the bigger clubs. His
pioneering style enabled him to quickly enter into the close circle of Lausanne
nightlife. Prestigious nights and residencies have been offered to him in now famous
clubs like Loft, Mad, and D!. Since 1998, Salvatore could host many great dj's,
sometimes legends, enriching Lausanne's nightlife.

His first release went out in 1997 titled the Fredator E.P. (Chic records/PIAS) and
found immediate support from Eric Morillo, Carl Craig or Tony Humphries. Not bad for
a first try... However, it is only years later that Salvatore could give a follow up
on the production side, being too busy with many activities devoted to underground
music development like organising partys, writing reviews in magazines, co-producing
radio shows, managing his own label "Adrenogroov", .. all of these while completing
studies in psychology and philosophy at the University of Lausanne. Nowadays,
Salvatore only focuses on both his first loves, studio work and dj'ing, there's no
need to say how much his devotion as been seminal in his country.

His reapparence on Trapez in 2007, brought him more concretely to international
attention. Since then, his productions over the past two years helped to reinforce
his reputation as well as that of the blossoming Lausanne scene which he’s
intrinsically linked with. Sassicaia, Patatas Madras, Tiramisu, Bombolone,
Bruschetta are some of an impressing serie of "club hits" that rocked any club over
the planet and pushed him across Europe in some of the hotest clubbing capitals like
Berlin, Hambourg, Barcelona, Paris, Milan, Naples, Zurich, Lisbone. Not to forget
his yearly presence since 2005 at the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival and other
national festivals like Caprices, Label Suisse, Electrosanne. Present and future
seem to look bright for Salvatore, who keeps on resonating in expansion, always...
