Starting on the underground circuit in 1997 Scottie climbed the ranks earning a spot on multi-award winning community station Freek FM. During this time he was billed for one of the biggest clubbing events of that time TwiceasNice, alongside DJs such as Steve Sutherland and Matt Jam Lamont. His relationship with the brand gave him the opportunity to work on the compilation albums they produced. He firstly contributed to the 2004 album release, Urban Club Classics. The success of this album led Scottie to join pioneering DJs Shortee Blitz and Matt Jam Lamont on the 2006 album: The TwiceasNice Weekender, which has since reached gold status, selling well over 100,000 copies. Scottie has also mixed another 3 compilations; Urban Anthems, which was released in June 2007, followed by TwiceasNice Club Anthems of The Year in 2009 and Warner Music’s Pure Funky House.

Scottie B has since reached national success playing in some of the biggest clubs in the UK, including Ministry of Sound (London), Gatecrasher (Leeds), Indigo O2 (London), The Syndicate (Bristol) to name a few. He has performed in nearly every major town and city in the UK. His UK gigs have led to him traveling as far a field as Lagos (Nigeria) where he played at R&B Superstar Ginuwine’s concert alongside Steve Sutherland, DJ Luck and DJ 279. More recently he joined Alesha Dixon on her Eastern Tour in Japan and the Far East as her official DJ.

As well as traveling across the world, Scottie presented his own weekend radio show on London’s Choice FM, interviewing the cream of young urban talent including Chris Brown, Ginuwine, Amerie, Ciara, Mario, Omarion and Bow Wow. This led to Scottie having opportunities with MTV Base and Kiss TV. He recently presented the hot new show ‘From the Endz’ on MTV Base which featured new and current UK artists, including N-Dubz and Tinchy Stryder.

Scottie B is also a producer. Being Alesha’s official DJ, he was given the opportunity to remix ‘Breathe Slow’ from her album The Alesha Show. He also produced ‘Excuse Me’ and ‘Love Letters’. Scottie is currently in the studio working on individual projects with Simon Webbe (Blue), Agent X and Matt Jam Lamont.
