Yesterday November 10 was the worldwide release of Fryer’s track “Moon” on Beatport. This has been followed up today with the official Beatport release of his Future Bass tune, “Clouds”.
Both of these tunes are worth their weight and showcase the fact that Fryer is no sluch behind the production desk.
“Moon” has sparked great responses, including a short review by HBT Magazine and has been showcased here on r3k4ce.com as well.
He has his eyes set on the future with a very ambitious plan for his career. If he keeps churning out tunes like these, it won’t be long before major Deejays / producers pick up on it.
Go ahead and show him your support here.

In the midst of all this. We thought it would be a great idea to have a word with Fryer, to get some insight into his past, present and future. We reached out to him on social media and had Adrian ask him a couple of questions. The result of which is below
Adrian : “Who are you and what do you do?“
Fryer : “I am originally from São Paulo, Brazil but I moved to San Diego, California three years ago. I am currently on my third year of my degree in Finance at SDSU. School takes a lot of my time so whenever I am free I am either making music or going to concerts with friends.”
Adrian : “What is your creative process, how do you usually put together a track?“
Fryer : “It really depends on the track. Sometimes I start from the drop and from there I make the rest of the track, and sometimes I come up with the main melody first and write the rest of the track from there.”
Adrian : “Is there anything you dislike about your work?“
Fryer : “I don’t like my old tracks. I think it’s normal for some producers to feel the same way. I have progressively gotten better the more I practice so when I revisit my old tracks, I don’t like them.”
Adrian : “What is your musical background?“
Fryer : “I was always very into music since I was a little kid. I can’t even remember how young I was when my dad introduced me to electronic music by showing me Daft Punk, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys etc. I love all these bands and I still listen to them almost every day.
I have never played any instruments until I started producing. I was around 13 when I bought my first MIDI keyboard but I had no idea how to play it. I would create melodies by ear and by what sounded nice. As I got older, I started learning how to play the piano and even took some private lessons to learn music theory. I still cannot read sheet music but I do not think that has any impact on my creativity when I am making a track.”
Adrian : “What is your dream project?“
Fryer : “I really want to be able to make a living out of Fryer. Making music is what I love most and it would be a dream to be able to wake up every day and do what I am passionate about. I just started releasing my songs so it is too early for me to expect anything.”
Adrian : “What are some tunes that influence your work?“
Fryer : “There are so many songs I could list right now. When it comes to Bass Music my influences are definitely Skrillex, Zomboy, Getter and Virtual Riot. However, I could also say that artists like Shaun Frank, Dubvision and KSHMR have also influenced me a lot. I love their work.”
Adrian : “What’s next for Fryer?”
Fryer : “I will keep working hard and learning more every day. You can definitely expect different genres coming from Fryer. I have so many ideas that I want to put together but unfortunately my workflow is slow right now since I also have school to worry about. However, I have many tracks which are done and I am only waiting for the right time to release them so you can expect to listen to some new Fryer tunes very soon!”
With Fryer looking towards releasing new music “very soon”. He has made us all here at R3K4CE Publishing eager to know and hear what’s next. With splendid commitment and passion for his craft even with a busy personal life, the quality of his productions have not suffered at all.
Sporting a very versatile style, as shown in the contrast of his first two commercial releases. We can only expect a plethora of variety in the coming months.
Good luck Fryer! You have our full support!
