Freddie Slaughter

Sabotaging since 7 Jul 2012

Freddie Slaughter (yes, that is his real name) was born a redhead in Maidstone and continues to be one to this day, but with slightly more of it and relocated to London. His mum taught him about art and long words and his dad showed him how to DJ. He’s nailed a film degree and wants to do music for a living. That’s right, do music. No, he hasn’t worked it out yet either. If you want to hear him talk about said music or films all the time then lock onto @chemikalrecipe.
