Hailing from Devon, England, electronic duo Fred V & Grafix (Fred Vahrman and Josh Jackson) began producing their blend of liquid drum'n'bass after meeting through friends at the ages of 16 and 18 and discovering that they had similar musical tastes. They put out their first single, "Groove Melon," in 2009 and started to build up their reputation; in 2012, the renowned Hospital Records signed them with Lung. Accolades and appearances on BBC Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac's show soon followed, and after a clutch of well-received singles through Hospital, they duo prepared their debut studio album, Recognise, which was released in March 2014.
The duo followed up in 2016 with their second full-length release, Oxygen. The record was a much more ethereal effort than their debut, and featured vocal performances from the likes of Amy J. Pryce and Kele.
