Denis A’s DAR label goes from strength to strength with these two superb outstanding tracks from the emerging talent that is Scotty.A from the UK.
Its all about a mean and moody, low-slung, building intro that develops a potent, understated anthemic quality when ‘Somehwerelse’ unwinds its seductive style. Unmissable! If any more proof of Scotty.A’s undoubted talents is needed, then look no further than the stylish elegance of ‘Persistence’.
Scotty.A first came to the attention of Denis A (and subsequently a lot of top DJs around the world) when his remix of ‘Heroin’ (released as DAR018) was the winning entry in the DAR remix competition on the excellent Dutch music site – www.laptoprockers.eu. Scotty.A’s extraordinary passion for music and dedication to his craft is certain to see his career soar in 2011.
Scotty.A has emerged in the last year as an outstanding producer who is definitely a talent to be watched closely during 2011. His first few productions have already seen him recognised by the Global Underground label and sign to Denis A’s DAR.
Scotty began dj’ing in 1999 and over the following years started to gain local recognition appearing on line-ups for various events in his hometown whilst developing his own distinctive sound, which can be recognised in his dj sets and productions today. Originally driven by the strong trance released in the late 90’s, Scotty’s sound has evolved to include elements of house, techno, electronica and progressive – Scotty himself is keen to avoid being pinned down to only one genre, describing his sound as a hypnotic amalgamation of many different elements which take the listener on a unique journey. Scotty’s enthusiasm for the music is apparent in his dj sets which has lead him to play at the world famous clubs Turnmills, Ministry of Sound and Pacha alongside names such as Dave Seaman, Danny Howells, Jimmy Van M and many others. You can currently catch Scotty and long-time dj collaborator Jumby playing regular sets at the legendary Electronic Sessions boat parties on the Thames in London.
Scotty first started to take a serious interest in producing his own tracks in Spring 2009, the quality of his work seemed to jump forward meteorically with each new track and in September 2009 his track “Underestimated” was announced as the unanimous winner of a Global Underground bedroom producer competition sponsored by Mixmag & BoxFresh Clothing. Scotty has since had a production signed to Miami based label Aquasounds. Now Scotty has linked up with Moscow’s forward-thinking DAR label, he is set to become a prominent figure in the future of electronic music.
