Freddie Cruger aka Red Astaire


Forever switching between his Freddie Cruger and Red Astaire alter egos, a barrage of top quality 12”s have made both monikers a permanent fixture in DJ booths across the globe. His 2003 single “Follow Me” on the GAMM imprint achieved widespread notoriety, a hook-laden, crowd-pleasing mash-up.

Hailing from the southern district of Stockholm, Sweden, Cruger said “My music must have some Swedish feeling to it but I can’t really pinpoint what that means… I have always been attracted to rhythm, drums and percussion, and have been deep into Reggae, Soul, Latin, Funk, Rap for as long as I can remember”.

After more than ten years in the business, Freddie released his debut album ‘Soul Search’ on Tru Thoughts in October 2006. The album continues to be one of his most successful projects to date, its tracks garnering millions of streams around the world.
