V HOUSE Radio 038 | Scotty James

Back in the day…let’s say 1996, with two of his mom’s old turntables and no microphone, Scotty James caught the DJ bug. He first got his start in Austin, TX. It was there that he fine tuned his talents and landed a Friday night radio show called “The 13th Hour” on the local college radio station, 91.7fm KVRX. “The 13th Hour” radio show featured both local and national guest DJ’s and brought Austin fresh electronic music weekly for over 2 years.
After finishing his schooling in Texas, Scotty decided to move out to Los Angeles to follow his passion for music. Within the first two years of living in Los Angeles, he managed to land two club residencies and DJ’ed regularly for rave promoters 26C and Freedom Force Five.
Through mutual friends within the scene, Scotty met Funguy and jlife. After hanging out at a few parties, they soon realized their shared passion for electronic music. Sick of the typical Hollywood club scene, it was only a matter of time before they organized their resources and started throwing parties. The Hush Crew was born.
In the spring of 2008, Scotty was invited to be the tour DJ on the second half of the Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood North American tour. Before and in between Keith & Carrie’s performances, he warmed crowds over with an eclectic mix of classic, feel good tunes.
Over 17 years now, Scotty has graced the decks and entertained crowds from coast to coast. Whether he’s rocking an arena or a playing a bar mitzvah, Scotty brings forth an uplifting yet lighthearted energy to his DJ sets. His somewhat eclectic style includes all forms of House, Breaks and Drum & Bass. Past residencies include: The Standard Rooftop, Key Club, Sunset Room, Luna Park, Shelter, Falcon, Club Lingerie, SPLURGE, Freedom Force Five and 26C Events. For mixes or info, visit HushRadio.com.

V HOUSE Radio 037 | Bob Canady

Although Bob Canady has only been DJing for 3 years, his underground roots go deep. It all started back in Florida when a club he and his friends frequented started mixing in Acid House tracks with Electro, Freestyle and Miami Bass in the late 80’s. He was already a huge electronic music fan but he was fascinated with the House sound. After moving to Los Angeles in 1990, he started going to small house clubs and discovered a radio show on KXLU called Illicit Groove hosted by DJ Sonic (Jason Bentley). He became obsessed with the music and eventually went to his first big underground called Jive at the infamous La Casa.  It was a life changing experience and he quickly became consumed with the culture.  Although he was collecting records since the 80’s, he never tried DJing until 2012 when a friend asked him to bring a stack of records over to play on his decks.  After that, it was time to buy some Technics 1200’s and a cheap mixer.  In 2016 Bob has opened at Dougal’s  “Sweet N Low”  and has played at Cure and the Cause. This December, the legendary party F.A.M.I.L.Y returns and Bob will be part of the stellar lineup.
