Biography of Patrice Scott
Patrice Scott is one of Detroit's top producers of deep house and techno music. Substance, quality, and diversity are the driving forces behind this artist who has touched the world by storm in the early stages of his career. P. Scott has a fascination and desire to be anything but the norm. This fascination began in Detroit, Michigan at the age of 13 while attending a neighborhood party by a local Detroit group who went by the name Sharevari. It was at this time that P. Scott received his first lesson and exposure to what was then called progressive music.
From that point, more influence came from local area artists and disc jockeys such as Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson and the Electrifying Mojo (Charles Johnson). Exposure to Chicago's WBMX and WGCI, which featured artists and disc jockeys such as Chip E, Farley Jackmaster Funk and Larry Heard, also played a factor in shaping P. Scott's musical direction.
After purchasing his first set of turntables P. Scott began to hone his DJ skills. He played at local venues throughout the city of Detroit with legends such as Ken Collier and Jeff Mills and hold a most notably weekly residency at the Amsterdam Lounge (Windsor, Ontario) under the promotional group Cybersoul T.Q.E. While continuing to develop as a DJ, P. Scott began to remix music using two cassette recorders, a drum machine and turntables. Although these remixes never made it out of his basement, this was the beginning of his evolution as a producer. In the following years he focused more and more on his studio production skills and his own label Sistrum Recordings.
Sistrum Recordings imprint was launched in October of 2006. The first release "Atmospheric Emotions" received rave reviews from many far and abroad. Since, P. Scott's releases have been charted by the likes of evon Vincent, Efdemin, DJ Fader, Lawrence, Fred P and many more.
His vision for Sistrum is to continue to provide quality music for the masses and to never deviate from the bar: do not be afraid to be different! And: always create from the heart, whatever moves you, whatever you feel.
