With their jaw dropping mixing style, phenomenal production skills,
easily recognizable look and unique sound, Scooter and Lavelle, are
quickly climbing the dj ranks. Yes they are award winning djs unto
themselves, but when they spin together on 4 turntables - there is,
quite literally, nothing like them out there. They have perfected the
art of playing 4 records at once into a seamless sound uniquely theirs.
Lavelle's banging progressive mixes is the foundation of their music,
and to it Scooter adds in scratching and turntablism as well as
hip-hop, rock and pop music loops. Theyve been known to mix in
everything from the Sesame Street theme song to Eminems Slim Shady.
They have self proclaimed the genre- bangin progressive turntablism. No
one else has been able to duplicate what they do and no one else could.
Their ability to rock every party with their unique take on house music
has garnered them international attention. Spinning together for over 9
years, they have blown up dance floors all across America and recently
completed a 30 city US tour with Charles Feelgood. When they met years
ago, they were both resident djs at a small underground club in San
Diego called The Candy Bar. Scooter would start off the night with his
hip hop set, while Lavelle and others would close spinning house. On
one chance occurrence, as Scooter waited for his check so he could
leave, he began playing over Lavelles music with one of his scratch
records. The crowd gathered around in awe. Mouths hung open.
Afterwards, everyone, including the promoter, expressed amazement.
Scooter knew it could be even better if he had his own two turntables
to work with. They agreed to bring in another set for the next show.
That following week magic was born as Lavelle played solid house tracks
and Scooter scratched, rocked doubles and threw in loops over it. The
crowd ate it up! So well received, they were immediately asked to
become residents by the promoter of one of San Diegos premier house
venues. With over 2,000 club goers every weekend, they quickly became
household names in San Diego and began playing up and down the west
coast. And the rest, as they say, is history. Scooter and Lavelle have
played together at some of Americas top parties including Gods Kitchen
(USA), Winter Music Conference (Miami), House of Blues (Los Angeles
& Las Vegas) Crow Bar (Miami) and the Sundance Film Festival (Salt
Lake City) just to name a few. They currently hold residencies at Las
Vegass premier party venues- Rehab at The Hard Rock Hotel as well as
Americas ..1 Halloween party, The Fantasy and Fetish Ball. Voted one of
the worlds top 10 parties that must be experienced by Maxim Magazine,
Scooter and Lavelle have rocked it every year since 2001. Their other
residencies include San Diegos Aubergine and largest club venue, On
Broadway. In Los Angeles you can find them at playing to sold out
crowds at Club Rubber, Diezel and Naked LA and Denver continues to fly
them out to rock Club Vinyl. They have built up a solid reputation in
the dance scene and take a huge following on the road with them
everywhere they play! A big part of their success is their complete
outpouring of love for the music they play. These two are a high energy
act. You will never find them bored behind the decks smoking a
cigarette and staring at the crowd in disdain while they wait to play
their next song. Instead you will find them in constant motion, whether
its with lightning fast hands rocking doubles, jumping up and down with
the crowd or pumping their hands in the air- motivating the club to
make some noise! Their act is always fresh and they continue to
surprise both each other and their fans by bringing out secret records
neither knows the other is going to play. Whether its a classic house
track or one of todays top hits, it has an appeal they know their
audience will love. When they are not performing, they're busy using
their production talents in the studio.
The gifted team have produced
numerous songs including, Sandman, an illicit remix of the Metallica
smash. Another club hit, Cant Stop appeared on DJ Miss Lisas cd
Magnetism that was released on Topaz Records in 2003. Although Scooter
and Lavelle have included their own singles on past compilation cds,
their fifth album Hard Act to Follow, is made entirely of original
music produced and arranged by the talented dj duo. With over 20 years
combined in the music industry, Scooter and Lavelle know the music that
motivates a dance floor. Played in nightclubs across the country, the
songs of Hard Act to Follow have already proven themselves club hits.
Freaks and Power are two great examples of their bangin, peak-time, big
room tracks while 6 Million Djs showcases their diversity and ability
to both produce and play funkier house tracks. Feelin Devine is a great
example of their studio production skills.
They've been featured in Playboy's "Girls of the Hard Rock" and the
award winning feature film "Put the Needle on the Record"
(http://dj-film.com.) Theyve also appeared in the 2005 season of The
Club on Spike TV and on the E Channels Vegas Nightlife episode. They
have shared the stage with such greats as Paul Okenfold, Tall Paul, DJ
Dan, Donald Glaude, Grant Plant, Jon Bishop, Christopher Lawrence, and
Richard Humpty Vision, to name just a few. Their most recent awards
include being voted San Diegos Best DJs @ 944 magazine in 2005 and St.
Louis Best DJ Show @ Velocity Promotions. With their ability to play
bangin house, hip hop and every genre in between, Scooter and Lavelle
can rock any dance floor, anywhere, any time! They are a complete
package! Currently touring in support of their latest album "Men of the
People" these two are unstoppable. Make sure to check them out at a
venue in a city near you, cause if you havent seen them, you havent
truly heard them!
