ARTIST OF THE WEEK- NEAL SCARBOROUGH
Tune in to Static Progress each night this week for an exclusive guest mix from Neal Scarborough: www.staticprogress.com
Over the past five years, Neal Scarborough has become a name that has rolled off the tongues of every DJ, producer and clubber in Trance circles. His productions have become regulars for a wide spectrum of DJ's and he has appeared on some of Dance Music's biggest labels.
In 2004, Neal first collaborated with John O'Callaghan on a number of different projects, the most successful coming under the guise of Inertia. Their first track, "The Emerald", caught the ear of Discover A&R manager John Askew, who had no hesitation in signing Inertia to the Discover label. In 2005, their second release, "The Chamber", really shot them to prominence and the name Inertia was on every Trance DJ's playlist.
Moving on from there, Neal began to establish himself as a Producer and Re-Mixer in his own right. Remixing "Thomas Datt - Distance" for Discover Records as well as the release of "Distant Dr eams" on Enhanced Recordings, under the guise of Nautical Imagery (#6 in Paul Van Dyk's Top 10 for 2006) were his first stand alone releases.
2007 saw "Stung On The River" released on Discover Records with an awesome Sean Tyas remix. Neal then moved on to be signed under the Armada umbrella with his take on the classic "Madagascar" coming out on Soundpiercing, followed by his massive remix of "Dave 202 - Rain Against Her" on Captivating Sounds.
2008 saw Neal propelled into the spotlight even further with releases and productions coming thick and fast. As well as renewing his Inertia partnership with John O'Callaghan to bring us the massive summer smash "The System", he also appeared on Vandit with his remix of "John O'Bir - Ways & Means" and Infrasonic Recordings with his remix of "Andy Tau - The Path".
2009 see's the release of Neal's own tech-tinged destroyer "Panama" on Fraction Recordings. "Tiberium" and another collaboration, this time with Frase, "Caldari" are both due for release on Conspiracy Recordings early this year.
