Surfacing on the scene in 2011, Charles Scott’s sound is one that embodies the spirit of underground house music.
Growing up in a musically active family, Scott’s earliest musical landscape was shaped by a wide array of influences, from Jazz Fusion, Funk, and Disco, to Hip Hop & R&B. No style, however, resonated quite like the sound of techno and house emanating from the Los Angeles underground in the mid-90s, which Scott immediately took a keen interest in, after discovering the scene as a teenager. Taken with the ‘do it yourself’ nature of underground music, he immediately set forth to do just that, piecing together a somewhat scrappy and makeshift ‘studio’ out of whatever cheap and/or depleted gear he and his friends could get they’re hands on: Dad’s old DX-7, a busted up Fender Rhodes, a Peavey Sampler, and the almighty AlphaJuno were the foundation of a string of well-received deep/tech-house 12” EPs, released from 2001 and beyond, under various aliases. Scott soon found himself DJing his uniquely groovy tech-house sound around LA’s then vibrant outdoor and warehouse party scene.
Stylistically, Charles Scott’s brand of house music straddles the delicate (but bendable) line between tracky tech-house and melodic, deeper fare. Scott’s tracks and DJ sets are bound by only one crucial restriction: to always create and play vibey, deep, groovy music that indulges the mind, and moves the body.
