Biography

SCOTT LONDON THING GARCIA The story so far

Scott Garcia is without a doubt one of the pioneers of the UK garage scene after setting up his own record shop in 1994 at he very young age of 16 he has not looked back. Scotts shop Ruff Trax was one of the first of its kind stocking only house and garage made in the UK while the Sunday scene was dominated by dub versions of US garage tracks made by American producers such as Smack and DJ Disciple.

Owning the record shop lead to Scott hooking up with several promoters who were putting on Sunday scene partys and he was soon DJing at venues such as The Arches, The Frog And Nightgown and Adrenalin Village not to mention a host of invite only boat parties. It was while playing at one of these party’s that Scott hooked up with then up and coming producer Gee Smoove. Gee was makingtracks out of a tiny studio in Wandsworth which was 10 minutes away from Scotts family home and it wasnt long before Scott booked himself into that studio and made the leap from DJ to DJ/producer. In 1996 Scott made his first 12 a two-track ep titled Enter the Darkness though it was quite minimal it had definite signs of the trademark style that he is now famous for.
By the winter of 1996 the underground garage scene was exploding in London and the club nights had begun to move from the small intimate Sunday night gatherings to the bigger more mainstream clubs on Friday and Saturday nights.
