Short biography of Scottie :
DJ Scottie first got involved in the "dance" music thing back around 1989.
The first tracks he heard were the big commercial ones like [m33110] and [m137258]
Some of his favorite tunes from that time were songs like Orange Lemon - Dreams of Santa Anna, Richie Rich - Salsa House, Renegade Soundwave - The Phantom etc.
He says: "for me though the scene really kicked off in 91-92 at places like The Eclipse (I have about 100 tapes from there, shame its been knocked down like the Sanctuary in Milton Keynes now :( amnesia house, Fantazia, Raindance, dreamscape etc etc there are loads more that I could mention. I remember hearing one tune in particular though in 1991, SL2 - DJ's Take Control and thinking yeah I like this stuff and I have followed the underground scene through to the present day in 2006."
The only negative thing about music now is the division that has been created. There is lots of good "dance" music out here, I just wish the music wasn't so divided so people could listen to just good music and not just this style or that style.
I got my dj name "Scottie" because I'm from Fife in Scotland but have lived in England since 1993.
So being a Scotsman living in England people call me Scottie.
This was also the name given to me by a guy called Deano who's event I was playing at in Sep 1998 (my first gig) called Lost Generation in a town called Daventry, near Northampton where I currently live. Since that day the name has stuck and I have used Scottie as my name to go on promoter's flyer's
In 2000 I received my first "big" booking at Raindance in London playing what is now classed as old skool, I had only had my technics decks for 6 months so I was over the moon. This was really good and I had loads of my friends there for support as well (thanks folks, it meant a lot:) Since then I have played again at Raindance and also a number of big and small event's including God's Kitchen Global Gathering, Dreamscape, Helter Skelter, Slammin Vinyl, HTID, Uproar, Jellybeanz, Vibealite and many many more.
I have recording's of my sets from some of these event's which were also released in the tape packs by various promoter's and video clips from global gathering. If anyone would like anymore infromation, mixes, video clips etc please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and ill be only too happy to help if I can."
