You may have seen numerous videos of this incendiary set from Fred again... online, which is getting attention for obvious reasons. What you may not have noticed is that he's using a NI Maschine to play tracks live as well as playing some of his own remixes - no mean feat in a sweaty (and intimate - so much so someone stops the deck here) boiler room setting.
The set comes off the back of a track with Swedish House Mafia and collaborations with Skrillex, FKA Twigs, Swedish Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, Eminem, The xx, Underworld and Brian Eno. He played this years Coachella and PrimaveraSound festivals to much hype. For something more downbeat, here he is is playing on a rooftop in London:
