From a young age, DAN SCOT has had a passion for the electronic outdoor scene – specifically Psychedelic Trance. His musical journey began 12 years ago with techno on turntables and finally finding his love for psy trance all the while being nurtured into what is the Dan Scot sound today.
Countless sets over the years influenced by his peers and the massive trance community, has blasted his sound into a much more rolling punch ranging from Progressive through to mind-bending Full-on. Its was this exact sound that lead to him being signed to Beartraps sister production “THE COLLECTIVE” who where responsible for a string of successful outdoor events such as, Paradise Beach and Imagine headlining some of the scene’s most loved artists such as MortenGranau, Tezla, 4i20, Mandragora, Blastoyz and Berg to name a few.Fast forward a few years he was grabbed onto International label “NBM RECORDS”, which came as no surprise, joining a string of quality Dj’s and producers with the likes of Kalki, Gonzi, PsyMantis, Plastic Vision, Danimal, DM Tricks, D-Addiction and Groove Inspektorz to name a few. His sound since then has evolved which lead him to recently leaving NBM Records and presently finds himself playing independently under his Dan Scot alias.
