That went to all the Soul nights and weekenders in the 80s.
It was at this time he met Froggy and they became great friends. Scott would visit Froggy’s Studio and see the development of all the mixes. They would work together later on in 2006 and make a track together with Froggy’s son Mark. Scott openly says that Froggy played a major part in him taking up DJing and his help in showing him how to mix records.
