The Los Angeles Times calls DJ Scotty K. "...one of LA's premiere DJs" who consistently delivers the music that club-goers want to hear. Starting his music career as a DJ in New York City over ten years ago, Scotty was a regular at local hot spots Spike and Twirl before moving west in 2001 to a make music his full-time occupation. Upon arrival in Los Angeles, Scotty was quickly snatched up to become the head DJ at West Hollywood's popular Here Lounge, impressing the lounge owners with his vibrant sound. In 2003 Scotty was hired by The Ellen Degeneres Show and made television history as daytime television's first "DJ", in lieu of a band and bandleader. Behind the scenes Scotty was also honing his remix and production skills and scored his first Billboard #1 song with a remix of Christina Aguilera's "Ain't No Other Man" that remained on top of the Hot Dance Club Play chart for two consecutive weeks.
"I was thrilled and excited when I was asked to work on a compilation for Centaur," says Scotty K. "I make it a goal to provide music that makes people feel elevated and makes them feel happy to be alive. I wanted to keep the entire feel of the CD fun, fresh and familiar while putting my own signature sound and mark on it."
"Global Groove: Live 4" combines some of the biggest chart hits to come from the dance and pop genre, each taking on a unique reworking to allow them to blend together seamlessly. Remakes of "I Kissed A Girl", "Cry For You" and Linkin Park's mega-hit "Shadow Of The Day" give Scotty's mix the bounce that he is known for, and the undiscovered gems "Falling For You", "Danz (Devotion)" and Keo Nozari's "Rewind" definitely stretch the smile ear to ear with their infectious energy.
