Taught how to spin by his brother at 13, Frank Zenker alias Scot Project bought his first electro record in 1983 and had begun DJing by 1986, playing breakdance tracks at local youth clubs. Fascinated by the first acid and house tracks in the late 1980s, Scot Project began to incorporate these new sounds in his sets, showcasing music from the house, hip hop and techno scene.
By 1990 he had landed several residencies around Frankfurt and two years later began building his own studio, closely followed by his first single; 'X' released on Overdose in 1995. By the time his hugely successful second single 'U (I Got A Feeling)' hit clubland in 1996, Scot Project was playing regularly in the USA, Canada, Brazil, Russia and Israel. A massive European club hit, it was 'U' that launched DJ Scot Project to international fame
Scot Project has also completed a string of highly-regarded remix projects for German labels including Pulse, Fog, Area and Intercord among others. Most recently, he enjoyed massive success in the UK during 2001, applying the midas touch to the big room track of the moment; 'Firewire'.
Bringing deeper, dirtier trance to his sets, DJ Scot Project combines hard percussive elements with melodic trance. In his own words: 'The perfect combination of sugar and spice.'
Scot Project has now stopped all remix requests to concentrate on his own DJ profile and artist material. Having just released his new single 'O' on Overdose, there are plans for a debut album and a string of worldwide dates in 2002 as the man behind Scot Project is unleashed on to global clubland.
