Fred Fades & Ivan Ave

Fruitful

Jakarta Records

Released: 19th February 2016 | 12 track alternative rap/hip-hop album

Ivan Ave can't do wrong. After dropping his critically acclaimed Low Jams EP with Mndsgn (Stones Throw), he now is back with another project to hold you over till his solo LP entirely produced by Mndsgn will drop early spring 2016.


Frutiful though, was entirely produced by his Norwegian partner in crime Fredfades, who has been making noise in his own & has a handful of releases under his belly. Proving norwegian HipHop is cool as Norwegian outdoor temperatur, his versatile sound largely incorporating his incredible collection of rare modern soul and boogie is the perfect backdrop for Ivan Ave's poetic tales about urban life, relationships and daily observations.
Just like his project with MNDSGN, Ivan seems to have a gift in finding producers with which he manages to create coherent projects that don't sound thrown together...
Follwoing their Brains from 2009 & Breath EP 2014
by Fred and Ivan, the FruitfulLP was a just the next logical step, after Ivan moved to Oslo. The two started to hang out more and started recording new music. Fred took care of the mixing and tried to make a red line sound wise. The combination of these two is so fresh and brings a new, whilst still classic, sound to the game with a little help from guests such as Jakarta's own JuJu Rogers and Fresh Daily.
Ivan Ave's solo album, entirely produced by Mndsgn will drop early in 2016.
