Fred P aka FP-Oner returns with 6, demonstrating the many cosmic qualities of his deeper shade of soul. 6 is the second part of a trilogy that features his detailed sonic landscapes, full of mystery and power. While 5 (MUSIQ 048CD, 2015) leaned more to the jazzier, relaxed, and atmospheric side of his artistically deep house expressions, 6 grinds even deeper into spherical worlds that enhance deep meditative highs. They are not made for club use only. In fact all of these compositions also work massively without big speakers. The New York City native, who has been working on his very own music since the mid-'90s, has produced an inward journey that is compelling, mesmerizing, and enchanting. You'll find cosmic dust in it as well as dark entropies, percussive power, sweet seducing melodies, and rolling bass power that shakes your inner and outer self profoundly. An almost lyrical house journey that works like a musical sculpture in which organic machine grooves float along keys on air. The evolution of the each track is impeccable and their power grows with every listen. Describing this album, FP-Oner explains, "6 represents the number of man and his or her limitations, weakness and imperfections. This body of work examines and looks towards one awakening. Adapting to a new way of being creating an alternative and reaping a higher state of mind and being. Enhanced by love and serenity, satisfaction and joy." He also quotes Texan new age musician J D Emmanuel's statement, "My music style is to first create a foundation using cyclic, polyrhythmic music, then build several layers of improvised leads and rhythms that allows you to transcend time and space... We have Memories of Past Lives that reverberate in our hearts like Echoes From Ancient Caves." There is nothing more to add, except that those who do not know FP-Oner so far should know that he danced in his younger years in legendary NYC clubs like the Red Zone, Sound Factor, and Tunnel to DJ sets by larger-than-life selectors like David Morales, Frankie Knuckles, and Danny Tenaglia, where he learned that sometimes less is more. Most of his work as Fred P or Black Jazz Consortium has been released via his own label, Soul People Music; as Fred P he has also dropped 12"s on Jus-Ed's Underground Quality imprint and Toshiya Kawasaki's Mule Musiq, which now presents the second part of his trilogy under the FP-Oner alias.
