A key component in the founding of Metalheadz, Doc Scott is as much part of the history of Drum and Bass as any other figure you care to name. Working alongside his friend and fellow West Midlander Goldie, Scott helped cement the genre as arguably the most exciting musical movement of the 90’s, with rules seemingly broken on a weekly basis in pursuit of enlightenment at 170BPM. The ceaselessly future facing ethos of that label has echoed throughout his career, with Scott’s continual work on the deeper of the spectrum finding him often sat right at the cutting edge. His own 31 Records has served as a hotbed for fresh talent across its two decade run, with Commix, S.P.Y, Klute and Artificial Intelligence just some of the names to feature. Forever with his ear to the ground, Scott’s popular run of ‘Future Beats‘ podcasts culminated at the tail end of last year with an impressive compilation of brand new music.
Although responsible for cast-iron anthems in the shape of ‘Shadowboxing’ and ‘Here Comes The Drumz’, Scott considers himself a DJ first and foremost – with his sets at ‘Headz’ seminal Blue Note Sunday session and Fabio and LTJ Bukem’s Speed often talked about in hushed tones by DnB vets. Before he goes back to back in Room 3 with Source Direct this Friday 27th March at fabric, we cornered Scott to drop Hyp 218. Packed with exclusives from start to finish (no tracklist on this one), its a deep and soulful outing from one of the best in the business.
