Scott Alexander Brown (born 28 December 1972) is a Glasgow-born Scottish DJ and music producer, now living in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. Brown produces and plays a variety of genres commonly called rave. Although he is most associated with bouncy techno, his music ranges from Happy Hardcore, through hard trance, to gabber. He is the founder of the Evolution Records family, which started in 1994. He was heavily involved in the evolution of the UK's hardcore techno scene from the early 1990s, in particular introducing the harder-edged sounds of Belgian and Dutch techno to the UK, and taking the Scottish sounds to Europe. He DJs at rave events in the UK, the Netherlands, the US, and locations worldwide. Brown has produced music on his own record labels (Evolution Records, Evolution Plus, Evolved, Evolution Gold, Poosh, Screwdriver and Twisted Vinyl), and under a range of monikers including Plus System,The Scotchman,Interstate, Bass-X (with his brother Stewart), and with his band Q-Tex, which was formed in 1991.

Links To Peel

Peel first heard the Scottish DJ in 1994 through the Hardcore Hell compilation, which he found out over the weeks consisted of alias artists, who were all in fact Scott Brown. Nonetheless Peel was still enthusiastic of Scott's work and invited the DJ to do a session for his show, which was first broadcast on 30 November 1996. Over the years, Peel continued supporting Scott's work by playing his tracks.
