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.
