Continuing the musical theme running this week here at FatKidOnFire HQ [it’s a) unintentional b) not a bad thing in my book(!); but hopefully there’ll be more interviews to read sometime in the next few days] the latest addition to the musical side of the FKOF family is producing mixes for us all the way from across the Atlantic – Columbus, Ohio to be precise.
My geography is pretty rubbish, in case you’re like me and didn’t know how Columbus and London relate to each other here’s a (fairly poor) representation of where Scott is with respect to FatKidOnFire HQ. A rough guestimation put that red line (direct from London to Columbus) at 4,000 miles. That’s a long way!
Anyhow, I’ll let the main man tell you a bit more about himself…
Name: Dj Scooter aka Scott Hinton
Location: Columbus, Ohio, USA
Bio: I’ve been spinning since early 1998 in clubs and at a few underground parties. I started out spinning jungle and drum & bass but moved into hip-hop, trip-hop and downtempo. 2008 saw me introducing dubstep into my repertoire, as well as dabbling in a bit of production with a few friends along the way. Nowadays, I help throw a local Sunday night weekly of underground dance music. I also spin for PUSH! Productions out of Columbus, Ohio as well as being a new addition to the FatKidOnFire family!
- Dub & Run Crew – Renegade Snares (dubstep refix)

It’s a damn decent introduction and you’ll be hearing weekly (or as near as we can work it) from Scott – we’ve got weekly minimixes lined up to keep you all on your toes. As always, if you’re feeling this introduction from Dj Scooter, you’ll find him on Myspace, SoundCloud (Myspace is dead) and Twitter. Holla at my boy!
Peace, love and respect. “Dubbety Dub Dub Dubstep Malarkey”
