The Arch Cupcake is DJ/Writer/Producer Frederick Sargolini (also known as FS). He began DJ’ing, 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. During those early teen years, he established his reputation as a producer and composer for local New York City artists. His production and writing skills caught the attention of several record labels, and by the age of 16, deals were in place with Polygram/Universal Records and Chrysalis Music Publishing. Just a few years later, with the ink barely dry on his high school diploma, The Arch Cupcake was hired by Character Music to write and do production work for major-label soul/r&b acts.
