Armed with his talents and relentless ambition he became one of thee most sought after producers in Sweden. Murlyn Music Group didn't let this rising producer pass them by. Fredro signed worldwide deals with Murlyn Songs Publishing and Murlyn Music Production. He was right at home among his peers, which included the likes of Bloodshy & Avant, Bag and Arnthor. The company sparked and immediately had the music industry buzzing from the U.S to the U.K.

His song "Doushite Kimi wo Suki ni Natte Shimattan Darou?" went to no.1 on the Oricon chart and was awarded a golden award for song of the year at the Japan Record Awards 2008.

 

Fredro also produced a majority of the 4 times platinum album "Like It Like That", the 5th studio album by Australian singer/songwriter Guy Sebastian . Of the 3 singles produced by Fredro, the title track "Like It Like That" went to No. 1 on the ARIA singles chart, was accredited with going 4 times platinum and is one of the most successful singles of Sebastian's career. The album received 6 ARIA Music Award nominations. Fredro also produced songs like "Maze" written by Claude Kelly and "Can Anybody Tell Me" on Jessica Mauboy's "Get 'Em Girls," which was certified Gold in its first week.

 

He recently worked with reggae legend Maxi Priest for his new album, produced B Smyth's single "Vibe", written with Motown's Sebastian Kole and produced & co-wrote "My Song" on Def Jam's Alessia Cara's album "Know It All".
