Dr. Fresch celebrates new Prescription label launch with 9-track G-house compilation11.9.17 DrFRESCH 020 Edit

Tony Fresch (aka Dr. Fresch) has come a long way since the 2012 launch of his former label, Prep School Recordings. The Prep School launch jump-started Fresch’s career in electronic music, as he wielded the indie imprint to release debut EPs from the now-dignitary Louis The Child, Illenium, and more. Since then, he’s solidified a commendable reputation as both an accomplished DJ and inventive producer, releasing music on upper-echelon dance labels such as OWSLA and Ministry of Sound.

Now, the LA-based curator has announced his newest project: The Prescription Records, a label created auspiciously alongside Insomniac Music Group. The label establishment is the latest extension of Fresch’s Prescription brand, which currently has its own mix series on Sirius XM (now on its 58th episode). Appropriately, in 2013, it was Insomniac which gave Fresch his start as a touring DJ after he won their Discovery Project competition. In many ways, the new imprint cements his six-year relationship with the industry giant.

To celebrate the label’s debut, Prescription Records has released a nine-track compilation featuring 12 unique talents, including Dr. Fresch himself (“Dr. No”), Arizona-based BIJOU (“Smack”), French DJ Tony Romera (“Kill The System”), and more. The compilation cements Fresch’s affinity for bringing novelty and nuance to the contemporary G-House domain, being one of the sub-genre’s original gurus.

Fresch had some remarks on the announcement:

“The Prescription Records is, in every sense, an extension of my artist brand as Dr. Fresch. I’m working with new artists whose music not only fits my style as a producer and DJ, but new artists who I see developing truly groundbreaking sounds in 2019… ‘The Remedy Vol. 1’ is a cohesive project that showcases the label vision from a dozen different artists. These producers pull elements of G-House, Bass House and Electro to solidify a sound I’ve been developing for years – that’s The Prescription.”

T-Pain scours Twitter to find future bass producer for new album, eager responses ensueT Pain Future Bass

T-Pain is creating a new album and wants to modernize his sound, so the auto-tuned voice of a generation took to Twitter to find himself a future bass producer. The hip-hop artist recently released a compilation mixtape, Everything Must GoVol. 2.

This, of course, caused a stir of responses from big hitters who’ve dabbled in future bass production such as Whethan, TroyBoi, Giraffage, and more. ETC!ETC! offered to produce a moombahton track on his behalf, and San Holo looked inward for spiritual guidance.

Teddy Pain later clarified, giving an example of Louis The Child to which the duo from Chicago expressed interested in collaborating.

DJ Nitti Gritti seemed to have secured a positive response from the hip-hop legend as well. Now, the electronic community simply has to sit and wait for this dream crossover to reach our speakers.

Louis the Child release an extensive nine-track EP, Kids At Play, inviting listeners to their sonic playground filled with sultry harmonies, soulful wonderment, unique sounds, and youthful fervor. Colorful sounds ooze out of , from the tropical steel drums on “Better Not” featuring Wafia to the blue guitar twangs on “Save Me From Myself” with NoMBe and Big Gigantic. These two kids from Chicago showcase their electronic dance-pop crossover skills on what could have easily been a full-length.

Genre bending and intelligent synth design becomes apparent through each of the EP’s distinctive tracks. “Interstellar” features a dynamic and glitchy arrangement that feels fitting of its futuristic name. “Braking News,” featuring RAYE, implies a playful relationship between the collaborators with rolling synths and hi hats that create a bounce in their step.

The Wafia-assisted “Better Not” featuring Wafia was the first track released off the project, amassing to a total of 72.5 million plays on Spotify, the duo’s most listened to track on the platform to date.  “Ohhh Baby” is quite the percussive piece, illustrating an organized chaos similar to an uplifting G Jones. “LOVE” featuring Elohim is the second collaboration between the two, the first being “Love is Alive.” The chorus features the West LA Children’s Choir, adding to the album’s childish delight.

“Dear Sense” features the soulful vocals of MAX and offers an LCD Soundsystem feel. “The City” featuring Quinn XCII offers bouncing melodies and punching percussions underneath a fervent voice. “Save Me From Myself” features EDM’s sax man, Big Gigantic, and the R&B clad, NoMBE. The acoustic guitar creates a campfire feel that drops into big, emotive synths, spaced out for effect. “Space Jam” contains a classic Louis The Child synth feel, sounding similar to an old-school 90s video game with frolicsome percussive elements. Listen to Kids At Play by Louis The Child below.
