Female Hardcore DJ Sc@r aka Kaylene Armstrong, is recognized today as one of the UK’s finest rising artists. The Australian-born DJ burst into the scene in 2006, working alongside Steve Uplift on the well respected hardcore label Raw Elements
Sc@r’s DJing career has already taken off, making her one of the few female hardcore DJs to have performed around the world - including Australia (Utopia, Planet Manic, Hardcore Remedy & more), Canada (WEMF, Nocturnal Commissions, Blacklight & more), BelgiumSpain (HTID in the Sun) and the USA (Candyball). Her local reputation has lead to bookings at some of the UKs premier events including HTID, Fantazia, Fusion, Firewall, Uproar, Hardcore Evolution and a resident at the UKs longest running dance party Raindance. In addition her sounds can be heard weekly across the internet and airwaves on Krafty Radio, History of Hardcore Radio and Londons pirate radio Eruption 101.3FM.
Many of Sc@r’s productions can be heard on underground hardcore labels Raw Elements, Executive Records and Lethal Theory Raw. Her style draws influences in from classic old skool sounds, to big euphoric trance chords, strong piano riffs, vocals, breakbeats, DNB and everything in between. Since earning her first vinyl release in 2007 with Lift Off and Dreamtime on Raw Elements, she has collaborated in the studio with a variety of artists including Uplift, Joey Riot, Orbit1, Cat Knight, Jamie Ritman, Cruze, Clodhopper, Dizzy, Vicky Fee and Marie Louise.
