The 12-track album is inspired by Brazilian music and culture.

Deep house legend Fred P is releasing his first full-length Black Jazz Consortium album since 2013 on his own Perpetual Sound label next month.

Evolution of Light is a “direct response” to New York City native Fred Peterkin’s first album as Black Jazz Consortium, RE:Actions Of Light, released over a decade ago. It’s inspired by the music and culture of Brazil, and includes collaborations with Brazilian musicians on several tracks.

“There has been a lot of growth since my first album,” Peterkin says. “I wanted to answer with a follow up that is honest, and along the way Brazil became a focus, so here we are.”

Evolution of Light is released on November 8 on 3LP vinyl and digital formats. Check the tracklist and artwork below, and pre-order it at Bandcamp. Revisit Fred P’s 2015 FACT mix here.
