Independent. Innovative. Underground.
Scott (DJ R3volution) Lives in NH. USA.
In the beginning there was vinyl (And it was good) :
I have always had a strong interest in music-especially “underground” dance music (non mainstream / non commercial).
The REAL R3volution started in 1988 when I taught myself self to beat match 12″ House & Techno records. I remember it took me about 6 months of trial & error to pull off a decent sounding & consistent mix. From 1988-1994 I produced hundreds of mix cassettes for my local friends. These mix tapes became popular quickly as this music wasn’t played on the “FM radio”.
I also played out at a few clubs during this time.
-In 1995 The R3volution “paused” as I stopped spinning (life happened).
-2015 R3volution (v2.0) Analog to Digital conversion.
–April 2015 I returned to the DJ scene-this time as a Digital DJ, spinning Trance. My debut digital mix release was appropriately titled “20 Years After” as I hadn’t spun since 1995. My second release was on Vinyl after I literally dug out my 90’s 12″ records for the last time. (I have moved to all digital since)
–Notable Milestones along the way…
-Ive been guest DJ on several prominent shows.
Here are a few Highlights: (with links)
-Trance Life’s TRANCEfonic Radio show.
-Kaeno’s Vanishing Point Podcast #460

(Midweek Mixdown! continues…)
-Oct 2017 The Midweek Mixdown! weekly mix series passes the magic # 100 milestone!. Since 2015 the “MWM” has been kicking ass with solid sets.
In addition to the MWM! Im beginning to spin “special” sets of Techno & Trance driven by passion & based on a “theme“.
R3volution’s Studio (Minimal yet Maximized).
Im a club DJ through & through.
My equipment reflects that.
I enjoy a simple & reliable DJ setup.
My Minimal setup consists of two players and a mixer.
The players are the Pioneer CDJ-2000 nexus.
The Mixer is the matching Pioneer DJM 900 Nexus.
I chose the Pioneer gear for two main reasons:
1- They are the industry standard at most venues worldwide.
(So when I play out I’m familiar with the equipment / muscle memory).
2- They are stable, reliable & robust.
Less is more.
The music source is a simple USB stick plugged into the players.
I use no software. No sync. (its not enabled as that’s part of the Rekordbox software I choose to not use) .
I typically do not use “cue points”.
I beat match by ear. (Old school).
Other electronics in the studio:
I use two PC’s in the studio. One is my dedicated “recorder” to record my sets. The other PC is for live streaming (when I go “live”).
A Shure microphone running into a DBX 266XL compressor along with a harbinger preamp/EQ provide nice voice audio.
The studio monitor amp is by Onkyo at 200 watts feeding 2 large Technics 3 way speakers.
