Frequency (born Bryan Fryzel in January 1983) is an American music producer and DJ from Rockville Centre, New York.

Biography

Frequency was born in Rockville Centre, New York in 1983. While attending Oceanside High School, he began to DJ at school dances and house parties.[1] He also began experimenting with production.[2] While still in high school, Frequency met 6th Sense, an MC from Pelham, New York.[3] Soon thereafter, the two of them formed a group, The Understudies, alongside 6th Sense’s friend and mentor Mr. Tibbs.[4]

The Understudies went on to perform in and out of New York alongside various groups including The Roots, John Legend, Rahzel, MF Doom, High and Mighty, Sage Francis, Cage, Ugly Duckling, Jean Grae and Cannibal Ox.[citation needed] They then signed a record deal on Freshchest/High Time Records, where they released the 12" single, "Now & Then" b/w "Bananas" in the summer of 2004.[5] Although the record sold over 1,000 copies[citation needed] through Caroline Distribution and was met with critical praise,[citation needed] the group broke up, and their full-length album, produced solely by Frequency, was shelved.

In 2004, New York underground mainstay Wordsworth sought Frequency out while he was recording his solo debut LP, Mirror Music. Frequency produced 3 tracks on Mirror Music: “Shoulder,” “One Day” and “Don’t Go.” That year, Frequency went on to work with several other artists he had met in New York’s independent scene: from Oktober (“NYC” on Projekt: Building) to Tonedef (“Give A Damn Remix” on Archetype) to El Da Sensei (“Natural Feel Good” on The Unusual).[6]

In 2006 Frequency won Scion’s New York leg of the King of the Beats competition, and produced a number of records for major label artists such as “Plenty of Love” by Raekwon, Gravy and Tikky Diamonds and “Ya’ll Can’t Live His Life” by Cam'ron. That year, Frequency also collaborated with Hip-Hop icon Snoop Dogg on “Think About It,” which was the first song on Snoop’s LP Tha Blue Carpet Treatment. Snoop himself repeatedly has referred to the song in interviews as his favorite track on the album.[7]

The following year, Frequency produced tracks for Ghostface Killah, Red Café, Lil' Mama, eMC (Masta Ace, Punch, Words and Strick), A. Pinks, and the New York radio anthem for Juganot, “En Why Cee” (featuring Joell Ortiz and Uncle Murda).[8] Also in 2007, Frequency reunited with 6th Sense to produce the bulk of 6th’s Rawkus debut LP It’s Coming Soon.

Soon thereafter, Frequency began working heavily with the Trackmasters, with whom he produced several tracks for the upcoming Lil' Kim LP, as well as tracks for Game, Keyshia Cole, Beenie Man, Slim (from 112) and others.[9] He also continued to place records on his own, producing songs such as “One Chance (Make It Good)” for Snoop Dogg's 2008 release Ego Trippin', "Like Me" for Ja Rule, "I'm All That" for Ras Kass, and "Onslaught" and "Fight Klub" for lyrical supergroup Slaughterhouse.

In 2009, Frequency spent much of his time developing Adair, a Pop music singer/songwriter signed to his production company, Freq Show Music, Inc. That year he also released "Welcome to the Freq Show: The Best of Frequency" with Trackstar the DJ.[10] In December, Frequency released "Road Kill" with Joell Oritz, a mixtape featuring freestyles that Joell recorded during the K.O.D. Tour and four original tracks, three of which -- "Ortiz In This Bitch", "Snake Charmer", and "50 For the People" -- were produced by Frequency.[11]

In 2010, Frequency joined forces with indie alt rock singer/songwriter/producer Anna Yvette to form FNA. As a production team, FNA has written and produced songs for other artists, including Joell Ortiz's current single "So Hard."[12] FNA also secured a record deal with Big Beat, Atlantic Records' newly revived subsidiary.[13] Their first single, "Take Me Home Tonight," a dance remake of the classic record originally recorded by Eddie Money and Ronnie Spector, was released on April 12, 2011.[14] Frequency most recently produced "Do You?", the lead single for Universal Republic's newest signee iFFY the Bad Man.[15] "Do You?" was released on August 2, 2011.

Frequency is also a DJ. He served as eMC’s tour DJ in Europe in the summer of 2008 and Pharoahe Monch's tour DJ during a 2010 tour in Canada. For the last few of years, he has been Slaughterhouse's tour DJ, appearing with them at the Paid Dues Festival, Rock the Bells (in 2009 and 2011), the K.O.D. Tour with Tech Nine, several Red Bull events, the Brisk Bodega and various other shows.[16][17] While touring with Slaughterhouse in 2009, Frequency became well known for appearing in several videos posted on JoeBuddenTv.com, as well as Joe Budden's BlogTV channel.[18] In addition, he has toured extensively with Joell Ortiz and has DJ'd several dates for Royce da 5'9", Crooked I and Joe Budden. For several years, Frequency also was one of the house DJs at the Whiskey Bar in Times Square.[19]
