George Fitzgerald

Domino Records / UK

Sunny melodies

The British artist released his new album in March, the second in his career. A mesmeric and transportive collection of songs that firmly establishes him as a preeminent figure in the electronic music world and a rare example of a musician capable of making the transition from club producer to album artist.

The Englishman was at the very heart of the birth of dubstep, first as an employee at Black Market Records in London and later organizing the Man Make Music parties. In 2010 he relocated to Berlin, where he began to release material he had previously worked on for a number of years. FitzGerald has always been open-minded to many musical genres in which house, bass music, and garage happily sit alongside each other, releasing music on some of the most interesting new European electronic music labels, such as Hotflush, Aus Music and Hypercolour. His emotive and contemporary sound led him to sign to Double Six Recordings, Domino's sub-label, on which he released his debut album, the radiant "Fading Love", in 2015. In 2019, Sónar Istanbul will have the pleasure of hosting him.
