Doc Scott has been making his influence felt on drum & bass since before it had a name - from the birth of rave in the UK to the present day, Scottie has been tearing clubs apart with his selections and productions. His musical roots are steeped in the electro and hip hop of the 80s, which in turn led him into the Detroit techno of Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May, into Chicago house, New York garage and European techno. As the rave scene exploded in the UK, Doc Scott started headlining events up and down the north and midlands of England. His first foray into the studio in 1991 resulted in the NHS EP, which included the massive track ‘Surgery’ which established his name across the country, and led him to rubbing shoulders with the likes of Fabio & Grooverider and Goldie. He was introduced to the Reinforced crew and after playing them ‘Here Come The Drumz’ was snapped up immediately. When Goldie established Metalheadz, it was with Scott that the first releases were put out; cutting edge tracks like ‘Drumz 95’ and ‘Far Away’ which helped shape the nascent scene, whilst he was also a resident DJ at the legendary Sunday night Blue Note sessions. In 1996 he launched his own label, 31 Records, with ‘Shadow Boxing’, a monster of a track you can still feel in the productions of today. 31 went on to release some of the genre’s finest moments, from the dubbed out ‘Deadline’ by Digital, to helping take drum & bass into a more musical direction with Marcus Intalex & ST Files’ ‘How You Make Me Feel’ to Pendulum’s first big tune ‘Vault’ which set the blueprint for main room drum & bass post-2003. Doc Scott has spent a remarkable career setting landmarks in drum & bass, the evolution of the sound can be mapped through his music and tracks which he has had a part in, and in doing so he’s earned himself a place in drum & bass folklore. He continues to DJ and run 31 Records, and is as passionate today as he was in 1991.
