February 2007, fredfades released his first “official” record, which is a vinyl EP made with Cali based rapper Blame One, from old Mystery´s Extinction. The format of the EP is a 7″ record, but it´s playing in 33 rpm instead of 45, which gave him the possibility to make more music on a 7″ record than what we are used to. It consist of four tracks, which is made out of six different beats, and two of the tracks has raps on them. On one of the tracks are Blame Ones cousin Beleaf, and this is actually Beleafs first verse on vinyl. All the beats on the EP are sample bas, as fredfades is such a sample maniac, but he is playing some keyboards on the “Track Charmer” track aswell. That track was co-produced by beat mate Deck Daddy.

He is also a very serious recordcollector, over two thousand records deep, and most of the records are hiphop, jazz and psychedelic music, all originals, no reissues.
