“Scotty.A has emerged recently as an outstanding producer who is a talent to be watched closely. His productions have seen him signed to several labels of note and he has received support from Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Russian DJ/producer Denis A amongst others. This support for his productions coupled with an extraordinary passion for music and complete dedication to his craft mean that Scotty.A is definitely a name to watch in 2013 and beyond.
Scotty began DJ’ing in 1999 and over the years started to gain local recognition appearing on line-ups for various events in his hometown in England, all the time developing his own distinctive sound which can still be recognised in his DJ sets and productions today. Originally driven by the strong, melodic trance released in the late 90’s Scotty’s sound has evolved over time to include elements of house, techno, and electronica. Scotty himself is keen to avoid being pinned down to only one genre, describing his sound as a hypnotic amalgamation of different elements which always takes the listener on a unique journey. Scotty’s enthusiasm for electronic music is apparent in his DJ sets which have allowed him to play at the world famous clubs Turnmills, Ministry of Sound and Pacha in London alongside names such as Dave Seaman, Guy J, Oliver Lieb, Danny Howells, Jimmy Van M and others. During 2012 Scotty has played various international dates and has established a residency for Terminal in Bournemouth, England as well as appearing on the line-up at John Digweed’s legendary Bedrock night in London.
Scotty first started to take a serious interest in producing his own tracks in the Spring of 2009, the technical standard of his music seemed to jump dramatically with each new production and in September 2009 his track “Underestimated" was announced as the unanimous winner of a Global Underground bedroom producer competition sponsored by Mixmag. The end of 2010 saw his competition winning remix of Denis A’s track “Heroin" released on the Russian based DAR label, this remix gained major support, raising Scotty’s international profile and also featured on a guest mix by Denis A for John Digweed’s world famous Transitions radio show. Scotty has since had a number of well received releases and remixes which have been heavily supported by the likes of Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and many more DJ’s around the world. There is now an ever growing demand from artists and labels for both Scotty’s original music and remixes including requests from Armada label Electronic Elements, Proton Music and Igor Cold’s imprint Somebody’s Story Music amongst others.
As well as continuing to DJ whenever possible Scotty is unrelenting in the studio, constantly working on new tracks, remixes and bootlegs for his DJ sets. With continuing interest from labels, producers, fellow DJ’s and most importantly, the crowds at his live gigs, Scotty.A is set to be an prominent figure in the future of electronic music.”
