Biography

In January 2000 two clever friends handed Scott Edwards a copy of buzz and a cdr full of samples. These were fused with a mind full of sounds crossing everything from Tangerine Dream to a Roots Supercharger and Avus was born.

By this time Scott had already been honing his DJ talents for many years gaining a residency at London’s Glasshouse, his own radio show and playing numerous sets around some of Britain’s best (and indeed dodgiest) sweatpits. During this time Scott’s sound had developed into a compound of deep house, techno and acid. Mixing the finest squelches from Detroit, Chicago, Berlin and London he formed the ideas that became the first Avus tracks. These early works quickly got the attention of Midset Recordings, tech-house bass junkies Poodlechaos and growth hormone placebo recipients Silver Planet. However, the Avus name was truly etched into acid house folklore when the all conquering Border Community label released ‘Real’. This was cemented with releases on Ali Perc’s Perctrax imprint and the legendary Klang Elektronik, guaranteeing Avus a place in the world’s more exciting record boxes.

But it doesnt stop there! With upcoming releases on Barbarella and Perctrax and a hard disk full of tracks waiting to escape there is much more to look forward to from Avus…

Avus is also still known to put his DJ hat on once in a while for the right gig, recently playing at Border Community’s Loft party for the Sonar festival in Barcelona and putting in regular appearances at the already legendary Perctrax nights in London’s Public Life.
