Hip-Hop will live forever. That is not so much opinion as observable fact. Whether it is through innovative lyricists crushing "the game" or electronic artists repurposing classic rap tunes into danceable remixes, the art of spoken word and simplified percussion has fused into countless facets of contemporary music as we currently know it.
Take Dr. Fresch for example. The up and coming house producer began his music career years ago, starting with classic piano and rock bands. He eventually moved to electronic music after hearing artists like Justice, Daft Punk, MSTRKRFT, and the other icons that dominated the indie electronic scene in the late 2000s. Thoroughly fascinated by the influence these artists imparted to the industry, Fresch grabbed a copy of Logic Pro and started making indie electro and mashups, intermittently DJing at high school parties.

It took him years to find the voice he has today. From 2008 to 2013 he experimented with everything from prog house to dubstep. His current sound, founded late 2011 and mastered Summer of 2014, is self described as “emotional, deep, yet accessible music.” With dark 4/4 basslines and emotive instrumentation, incorporation of recognizable vocal hooks, and a strong understanding of trap, 2-step, and garage, Dr. Fresch’s hard-earned brand is nothing to dismiss.
Today, he releases a remix of Gucci Mane’s “Pillz”, a perfect representation of his mastered outlook on the developing underground dance scene in Los Angeles. With one foot in the G-House door and another in the continuing development of his own brand, "Pillz" takes on of Fresch's favorite Gucci tunes and repurposes it into his own sound, complete with nightbass wobs and knocking toms.
