J. Scott G.

J. Scott G., formerly of Deepsky, set out on his own in November of 2006 and has not looked back.

After being on top of the electronic music industry for more than a decade, what achievement outshines traveling the world performing in front of hundreds of thousands of people at venues like Red Rocks and 3-Com Stadium, remixing Madonna (twice), Paul Oakenfold (twice), Seal, Frank Sinatra (the first official estate commisioned electronic remix *EVER*), Johnny Cash, David Bowie, America, The Chemical Brothers, Iamx, Curve, Utah Saints, Fonzerelli, Super Mal, George Acosta, Taxi Doll, The Crystal Method, Delerium, BT, Keoki, Carl Cox & Markus Schulz? What could be more rewarding than being featured on MTV, and producing tracks for Sandra Collins, D:Fuse, and DJ Rap? What can you do to top mountains of critical and popular acclaim in magazines like Rolling Stone and URB, barely being edged out for a Grammy nomination and a Dance Star award, licensing tracks for films like Tomb Raider and Bad Boys II, television powerhouses such as Buffy The Vampire Slayer and CSI, and spicing up video game soundtracks for Gran Turismo 4 and SSX 3?

J. Scott G.'s solo productions, Rocktronica bands (Summer Channel & White Line Allstars) and new record label (Libra Rising Recordings) are a direct answer to the continued enervation of the dance music industry that he helped impel as one half of seminal beat rockers Deepsky. As Rave culture enters its twilight and clubbers become jaded by mountains of listless deep-prog-idm-breakcore tunes, the party-going public has subconsciously clamored for something fresh and exciting with shrinking event attendance, drooping CD and record sales, and a palpable malaise about club nights once considered massive.
