From his debut at London’s superclub – Fabric back in November 05, to mixing Knowledge Mags January 06 cover CD Itchy Scratchy BreakBeat Mix – Scott Nixon is in demand. Throwing himself off cliffs, straightlining couloirs & doing 900s off kickers is just an everyday thing for Scott in his stunning home of Chamonix, Mont Blanc. This strong self-expression is clearly continued onto the decks & is a lifestyle balance most DJs would kill for. As well as getting into the studio last Winter to create some of his own tunes he was the man behind Winter Bar Knowledge in Chamonix. Once a month Nixon invited world class DJs from Mixologists, to Aquasky, to Shimon, & Superstyle Deluxe featuring MC Chickaboo to ride the mountain & play alongside him at La Cantina.

Pro-rider (sponsored by VANS, GNU, VON ZIPPER, BONFIRE, THTC, & INDEPENDENT) Nixon participated in the Pakistan Freeride event in the heart of the Himalayas for a 7 day jammin session with world-class snowboarders, skiers & snowkiters. He returned with the record but also unfortunately with a nasty bout of altitude sickness that left the big man pretty weak & out of it. Recovering in time to play to a rammed crowd with the Fingerlickin Crew – Krafty Kuts, Soul of Man & A Skills at Snowbombing in Mayrhofen, Austria last April, his set going down & storm being played live on Radio 1 show One World on 24th April 2006 between 1-3am.
Busy in the studio producing Nixon is due to remix an old tune of Soul of Man’s Big up the Noise – which, if is anything like his DJ scratch skills & snowboarding, will tear up dancefloors across the nation . Watch out for a release soon. BACKGROUND HISTORY Nixon started djing back in 1991. After a short period of time he started promoting his own nights on his home island of Jersey, Channel Islands. Playing along side top UK Djs, such as DJ Hype, Grooverider, Fabio, Plump DJs and Stanton Warriors to name but a few. The style he has developed today, is a radical, mashup, blend of fat, funky, grimy, head nodding beats, topped off with a fine array of scratch blending riffs, enough to rumble any gig. Over his 15 years of turntable dabbling, he has touch on most BreakBeat genres of dance music. The likes of heavy rave of the early nineties, leading to an intriguing journey thro Hardcore, Jungle, Drum n Bass and Breakbeat. This back ground of heavy b-lines, drumattic patterns, quirky frequencies and breaks, have helped with his comprehensive knowledge of todays BreakBeat music.
