FS is an American producer, composer, DJ and musician based out of Brooklyn, New York. He continues his bass music odyssey with a string of chart topping dubstep hits, including Both ‘Yup' & ‘Touch O Klass' hitting #1 on Beatport’s Top 100 Dubstep chart, and ‘Shake Dat Ass’ hitting #4. True to his signature sound, FS delivers electro-glitch-ridden and intricately woven sound spheres, loaded with distinct, bass-driven production. He gained critical acclaim in the EDM scene with his ground breaking band Ming + FS, releasing the seminal album Hell’s Kitchen on Om Records. Soon after he founded record label and creative agency, Patriarch Recordings, producing indie artists and scoring music for movie trailers, TV and film.
Renowned Writer/Producer/Artist/DJ Frederick Anthony Sargolini, a.k.a. FS, began DJ’ing and playing piano and guitar at age 10. His fascination with electronics and music began while constructing his first home-built mixer out of an Atari, spare circuitry and a few switches, and he soon after established a reputation as a producer and composer for local New York City artists. By age 16, deals were in place with Polygram/Universal Records and Chrysalis Music Publishing, and within a few years he was hired by Character Music to write and produce for major-label soul/R&B acts including Carl Thomas, Soul 2 Soul and Brandy.
After co-founding Ming+FS, and releasing four, full-length albums and over thirty 12" singles, he launched Patriarch Recordings, his production, artist/brand development and creative agency. Placements include TV, film, video games and advertising: CSI, Weeds, Entourage, Sony, Stomp The Yard, The Real World, as well as over 50 different TV shows and films. FS discovered, developed and produced Kirsten Price for Columbia Records, including her hit ‘Magic Tree’ Tree’ featured on the L Word, and he produced and co-Wrote ‘Nice For Me’, the forthcoming single for Hip Hop legend Greg Nice's new album. Recently, he composed and created music for the Middle Men trailer released on Paramount Pictures, and his original score for the new Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family trailer can be heard this spring and purchased on Itunes.
FS has shared the stage with the likes of Sting, The Roots, St. Germain, Run-DMC, Burning Spear, A Tribe Called Quest, and Moby, and has toured the world playing festivals such as Coachella, Mount Fuji Rock, ACA World Sound Festival, Audiotistic, Sundance Film Festival, and more. A pop culture aficionado, his studio companions are a muted TV, flickering images of Adult Swim and Family Guy, and the sounds of New York City (sirens, crashes, and car horns) pouring in through an open window. At its core, this urban perspective represents the bedrock of his musical and artistic process, and is the key to his ability to create in a unique but accessible way.
