If you loved Fred again’s Boiler Room set, you’ll want to get around this.
“EVVERRRYYYY thing you hear in this I play totally live. And there are some sounds I really couldn’t believe we were able to make like this.” he continued.
“It's one of my favourite things I've ever been a part of.”
NPR, the masterminds behind Tiny Desk, wrote in the description how different this concert was from the countless others they’ve done.
“When Fred again.. first proposed a Tiny Desk concert, it wasn't immediately clear how he was going to make it work — not because he lacked creativity, but because translating purely electronic music at the Desk is a daunting task for anyone.”
“But what the British songwriter and producer came up with is a reminder of what a Tiny Desk is at its best: an opportunity for artists to challenge themselves in such a way that it almost feels like they're making new music, all while sticking to what feels true to them. For Fred again.. that meant re-learning the marimba, playing the vibraphone, singing at the piano and looping sounds and beats — all at the same time.”
Along with the marimba, vibraphone, looping, piano, and singing, a true Fred again style, he also literally used the 'tiny desk' desk as an instrument.
