Biography

“Playground” is a project built around the Belgian radio host André Frederic. André has been involved in music-making for many years: in the early 90’s as the singer with a cover-band, later as producer and studio-vocalist for radio spots. In the late summer of 2006 he heard the good news that he would soon be a father. Almost immediately he had the idea of writing a song for his baby son. He had already previously written a song to celebrate the birth of a daughter to some friends. However, at the time he had not considered recording the track professionally. The new song (“Have You Here ...”) was quickly written and composed. Then in the autumn of 2007 it was recorded and produced by Dirk Neuss at Online Studios in Monschau-Mützenich (D). Subsequently, in the summer and autumn of 2008, a video to the track – produced by PLAYfour in Monschau) – was shot in Eupen (B), André’s own hometown. Finally, in early November 2008, “Have You Here ...” was re-mastered at the renowned Galaxy Studios in Antwerp by Grammy winner Darcy Proper (Rosenstolz, Ärzte, Peter Maffay...).
