Fred Lopez

Soul Motion


First Monday Of The Month

Every first Monday of the month from 6-8pm, Fred brings you a refreshing cocktail of old and new music. Soul, funk, disco, house, jazz, afro grooves, hip hop, drum & bass and music from all over the world.
Fred was born in France where his passion for music started in the early 80s with Michael Jackson, hip hop, flamenco, ska, Kraftwerk and Jean-Michel Jarre.
Fred joined his first band as a guitar player, back in the early 90s. This is when jazz became his biggest musical influence of all time.
A bigger turning point followed when Fred moved to England in ’96. The exciting clubbing scene and electronic music were a whole new world to him. Fred was not long to buy a pair of Technics and started DJing in various bars, clubs and raves across the country. He also launched a number of nights in Birmingham including Floatation, the closest to his heart and a big hit for 7 years. These unforgettable all-nighter were all about the music and the vibe and involved DJs such as Mark E, Charles Webster, DYI and Bougie Soliterre.
Fred has been playing across the UK and France since. He has recorded over 30 DJ mixes in the past 20 years, which you can find online. He moved to London in 2009 when he started collecting absolutely anything in terms of genres and rarities after listening to Gilles Peterson, Theo Parrish, Joe Claussell and Greg Wilson.
Fred moved to Brighton in 2015 and is a very proud member of the 1 Brighton FM family today. The idea of his ‘Soul Motion’ monthly show is quite simple: Share exciting music and stories on a Monday evening with you after work!
