Originally from Mississippi, Hunter Slay moved to Florida in 2001 to pursue music production as a career. He graduated Full Sail University in '02 with a degree in Recording Arts, and returned to teach multiple courses only two years later. In that short time, Hunter had already written an entire season of music for a television series, scored a play, and licensed a considerable number of songs for commercial and web use. He also managed to squeeze in regular DJ gigs at several Orlando hot spots such as Knock Knock, Sky60, Ybor's, Crooked Bayou, Peacock Room, Red Square, Alpha Bar, and The Grotto. Slay's teaching career eventually pulled him away from DJing in 04, and propelled him into the studio where his focus would remain for the next 5 years. After endless hours of polishing his craft, experimenting with all genres, and perfecting his recipes, Hunter developed an arsenal of skills to take on the City of Angels. Upon his move to LA in October '08, he immediately secured a residency at Libertine on Sunset; opening for local celebrity Johnny Hawkes and the Backstreet Boys' new DJ, LaniAkea. 2011 will be a year for returning to the studio with the intent of implementing dancfloor-tested grooves and crowd-approved format. Hunter Slay's deep and eclectic style always carries a certain sophistication and is sure to please even the most critical listener. His well-rounded production scope consistently delivers innovative quality and communicates one transcendent message. What is that message? Take a listen. Decide for yourself!
