THE WHAT:

If you missed the Freaquency360 Live series, we are still here and this is your 2.0 with a twist. This creative kickback will focus on producers and beatmakers, but it will include guests and showcases featuring folks from the music and arts industry. All photographers, writers, video directors, visual artists, rappers, singers, and fans are invited to vibe, network, and enjoy a chill-ass, Sunday afternoon. As the venue grows, I will be inviting A&Rs, label folks, creative directors, artists, engineers, and more. Let's build something the whole community will benefit from.

This episode we will be speaking with two pillars of the music communnity. Engineer,Musician, Label Owner, DJ and owner of 50/11 bucket hats.... Scott "Flock of "Slagle. Along with Scott we will have DJ,Producer Diarra "DR" Mayfield telling his story and doing a beat set of his otherwordly compositions....

Scott Slagle:

Scott is a 30+ year veteran of the Carolinas music scene. During those years, Scott worked as a freelance recording engineer / producer at The Bassment, Chung King, D&D, DARP, Firehouse, The Hit Factory, HUSH Studios, QUAD & Reflection Sound Studios. In large part, Scott cut his teeth on the sound of “East-Coast” Hip-Hop, working alongside industry heavyweights such as Eddie Sancho, Tone & Poke, Kieran Walsh and “Prince” Charles Alexander.

In 1998, Scott opened the doors of Asylum Digital Recording & Mixing in Charlotte, NC and has worked extensively with indie and major label acts of all genres. With hard work and a genuine respect for the craft, he completed a new studio build in late 2012.

Scott is a founding member of Electric Mountain, a team of producers that consists of Stephen Barrett, Dave Haire, Christopher Holston & Jason Michel. Scott is 1/5 of the band Super Ape (handling keyboards, percussion, production & programming) & is a voting member of the Audio Engineering Society (AES).

Diarra "DR" Mayfield :

The Mighty DJ DR was born in Philadelphia, PA. He was raised in Charlotte, NC since age 9 and fell in love with classic soul music at age 15 when he stumbled across his dad's old school record collection in the shed behind the house. Fromthat point forward DR's life changed!

The Mighty DJ DR has shined and been noted as one of the hardest working Professional DJ/producers in the Charlotte area since the early 90's. DR began his first DJ gig in a club at age 25 with real vinyl records. From there he became a Professional resident DJ for countless Charlotte Venues and events including the birth of First Friday events. He was a DJ in the backcourt lounge for The Charlotte Bobcats 2009 Basketball season. He performed at various private events during the 2012 Democratic National Convention, as well as countless other weddings, galas, fundraisers and corporate events in and around the Charlotte area.

He has been published on the front cover of Creative Loafing (pictured right) as the go to DJ for the 2011 CIAA Basketball Tournament and noted as must see DJ each consecutive year. He also won Creative Loafing’s 2011 Club DJ of the year People’s Choice. He’s also been published in Charlotte Pride and PLAY Magazines.

THE BEATS:

While there are scheduled beat performances, we will have a roulette-style, pass the aux. Bring your peeps and bang some beats!! There will be no old vs. young, or experienced vs. newbies. All genres of beats are welcome. Just bring your best stuff and if you need work, our job isn't to tear you down We want to help you reach your full potential. As humans and communal beings, we are meant to learn from each other.

A. Bring 2- 4 beats on a hard drive ( we will not aux you in ) the dj will play your tracks.

B. We will pick folks throughout the event to rock randomly throughout the event (roulette style), so come early. Sign ups for the beats ends at 5:00. There will be a cut off on the amount of beatmakers so if we are full before 5 you may not be able to play.
