Album of the Week: George Fitzgerald - Stellar Drifting

George Fitzgerald’s third album shows the producer at the top of his game, transcending but never forgetting the dance floor

Stellar Drifting, the third album from British producer Geroge Fitzgerald, manages to capture a lifetime of influence and over a decade of musical experience into one cohesive and catchy album of melodic, pop-but-not-poppy influenced electronic music. Across ten tracks, Fitzgerald touches on elements of UK Garage, House & Techno, Electro and more dance music subgenres, while drawing more influence from pop music arrangements and songwriter influenced melodic richness. With Stellar Drifting, Fitzgerald cements himself as one of the most exciting producers in the “warm and fuzzy electronic world” alongside the likes of Bonobo, Four Tet or Caribou.

Don’t take our word for it - check out our recent feature interview with the man himself where he discusses converting images of outer space into sounds, evolving from samples to working with amazing vocalists like Panda Bear and London Grammar, his journey from making club bangers to artist albums, DJing vs live shows and so much more.
