Black Jazz Consortium aka Fred P
Motor City Drum Ensemble
MCDE / Danilo Plessow
"...no doubt, 2009 was MCDE’s year. In February , Beatport’s team of music experts had put him ahead of the up and coming Deep House artists worldwide. In the following months MCDE got a growing critical and popular wave of applause due to his amazing, sample-heavy ‘discoish’ house tunes, delivering the whole ‘Deep House’ notion with clarity and vision alongside a definitive style and by keeping the quality levels bubbling over. “MCDE has cultivated a style that is somehow incredibly loose and tight at the same time” and that has made him one of the most appreciated producers of dance music at its best who manages to blend House, light Techno and Disco with the same amount of success.
With his impressive slew of stunning remixes for the likes of DJ Sprinkles,Tiga, T-Coy, Steve Bug, DJ T, Tom Trago, Jazzanova, Presence, Akabu, Toby Tobias, Losoul, A. Lodemann and others, Danilo created Deep House master pieces. Since march 2010 for example, his buoyant remix of NUfrequency's "Fallen Hero" leads the top 100 all-time charted tracks (of over 400.000!) on RA's DJ Charts and he's ranked among the top 10 charted artists. As well, his estimated podcasts (for RA/XLR8R/Juno Plus/…) proved that he understands much more about house than what simply emanates from his mixing desk..."

FRED P / Black Jazz Consortium
"...Fred P has truly captivated the house fraternity of late with his deep as the ocean house cuts on his very own Soul People Music as well as on Underground Quality . The word deep has recently been used to a point of overkill but one man that word applies to in his character as well as the music he makes is Fred . Fred is no new comer either . he has been carving and working on music for the past 20 years .
Fred, Jus Ed, Dj Qu & Levon Vincent became much more than just New York dj’s and producers . they truly captivated and captured audiences from all over the place with their highly intoxicating take on house music .
articles and heavy features came from the likes of Resident Advisor , Xlr8 and many more but Fred & the rest of the crew remain focused and truly humble . 2010 Looks like it will be a rich year for Fred what with ace releases already garnering high praise on Soul People alongside Move D & Steve Oh . Contribution on Laid . Fred is also constantly on the road with gigs in Berlin , New York , Belgrade , Frankfurt , London Ireland , Philly , Miami Winter Music Conference 2010 For Ra .e.t.c. & satisfied audiences and promoters all around and more release planned for this year only the sky is the limit for this great master builder. The devastatingly brilliant Deep Things Ep truly cemented Fred position as a producer of note . Little White Earbuds could not get enough of Fred and made his ace Structure cd album their number one album for 2010.
The Incredible Adventures of Captain P will be Peterkin's third album to date, following two full-lengths under his pseudonym Black Jazz Consortium—the most recent of which, Structure, landed in the RA Top 20 Albums of 2009. In the year and a half since that release, Peterkin has continued to perfect his hypnotic deep house sound on a series of 12-inch releases, including mini-compilations with artists like Move D, Jus Ed and DJ Qu. Though loyal to his signature sound, The Incredible... breaks the mold a bit, throwing in ambient, left-field and even some hip-hop style beats. The album will be initially released on CD and later on vinyl and digital..."
