LO-FI ARTIST/PRODUCER GETS VULNERABLE ON NEW ALBUM EVERYBODY’S TYPE
November 4, 2022 BY Jason Currell
Today, LA-based artist/producer frumhere shares his latest studio album everybody’s type. The 9-track album marks the lo-fi musician’s first full-length release with Nettwerk.
everybody’s type is a proper culmination of the signature style and emotional sound frumhere has built; many of his songs are formed around the countless voicemails he’s saved up since his early teens. The project title plays up his willingness to go with the flow as an artist, drawing back in time to how he first got his name. Just as the name frumhere resists classification, everybody’s type demonstrates that frumhere can offer any listener a worthwhile sonic experience.
“In the beginning, I got a lot of people asking, ‘Where are you from? You sound like an East Coast producer,’ or ‘You sound like a West Coast producer,'” he explains. “And I’d just tell them, ‘It doesn’t matter—I’m from here.'”
The album comes with an animated visualizer that showcases the remnants of a late night spent making music. Sonically, everybody’s type is full of raw vulnerability and a refreshing tenderness, making the project a strong antidote to lonely nights.

Revealing his raw emotionality and sophisticated musicianship, each new body of work from the L.A.-based artist/producer centers on his hyper-imaginative and deeply personal storytelling. To that end, the lifelong musician also known as Quentin Mulligan builds many of his tracks around the countless voicemails he’s saved up since his early teens. Raised in Santa Monica, California, Mulligan took up classical piano at age eight and started competing at the national level within several years. After graduating from the prestigious LA County High School for the Arts, he attended CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies in New York City. Although he spent much of his time studying at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, he began looking beyond the classical world and experimenting with production. Soon discovering his affinity for lo-fi, Mulligan started posting on SoundCloud under the name frumhere. “In the beginning, I got a lot of people asking, ‘Where are you from? You sound like an East Coast producer,’ or ‘You sound like a West Coast producer,'” he explains. “And I’d just tell them, ‘It doesn’t matter—I’m from here.'” frumhere introduced the world to a dreamlike form of lofi touched with the sweet haze of nostalgia and his signature style will continue to expand with upcoming releases through Nettwerk.
