Mild mannered banker by day, Scotty Mayes has had Auckland’s dance-floor’s grooving through the night to a soundtrack of disco-tinged soulful and funky house for over 12 years. In that time he has gone from winning prestigious competitions, to supporting America’s finest DJ’s, to currently holding down popular residencies.
Scotty’s passion for music began with a love affair of hip-hop and R’n’B during his high school years but he was soon hooked on house and by 2001 was a weekly feature at Eight Bar on Auckland’s K’ Rd - the city’s spiritual home of house music.
His trademark blend of soulful tracks and funky floor-fillers saw Scotty win the inaugural Deep, Hard N Funky DJ Competition – and from there the club doors continued to open. Scotty has continued to keep the crowds smiling at Auckland’s most popular hotspots; including: Bar 3, Bacio, Morrison, Code, Ink Bar, Coast, Centro, Calibre, Spy Bar, The Met, Studio, The Late Club, Stonyridge Vineyard, Wyndham Bowling Club and Mesh Bar to name more than a few.
It’s not uncommon to see Scotty spin alongside some of America’s biggest stars who he shares much in common with musically. In the last few years he has shared the booth with Baltimore’s Karizma, Chicago’s Stacy Kidd, Roy Davis Jr. Gene Farris.
And it’s no coincidence that Scotty’s party-pleasing sound has seen him star at some of the best events in and out of town; such as Club Anthems, Deep, Hard n Funky, Flamingo, the George FM Winter Warm-Up, High Rollers, Mint, D'Vinyl, Ohakune Mardi Gras, the George FM Beach Parties, Style Deluxe, Nice n Urlich, Sounds of Summer, Chicago Disco, Big Day Out, Glamour, Highlife New Year’s Eve and the Corona Summer Roadie (Wellington/Christchurch/Queenstown).
Scotty plays an assortment of music with a love of Soulful, Vocal, Disco House.
Recently he has completed a number of Re-Edits and is currently commencing production of his own tracks.
