Scope (Ric McClelland) April 2010 MixDavid Akermanis | Monday, April 5th, 2010 | No Comments »
I spent the better part of my long weekend listening to layed back house music. In my mind there is nothing better than deep, downtempo and funky grooves to celebrate the arrival of summer. Check out this amazing mix from Scope – this guy has got to be one of my all-time favorite producers.
Scope is Irish based DJ & Producer Ric McClelland. Inspired by Proper House and Intelligent Dance Music, his sound as Scope is clearly focused on grooves & melody.
Scope’s arrival on the global House scene was marked early in 2007 with his debut “Strung Out” ep on Urbantorque, which received massive support across the board, with plays from Fish Go Deep to Sander Kleinenberg, Jimpster to Deep Dish. Now a familiar name with his contemporaries, he has remixed many of House music’s top names including Behrouz, Hipp-e, Francois Dubois, Physics, Milton Jackson, Audio Soul Project, Tom Middleton, Wipe The Needle and most recently TJ Kong & Nuno Dos Santos. With releases out on top labels such as Urbantorque, NRK, Large Music, Forensic & Plastic City, Scope’s sound is pushing the boundaries of Electronic Dance music whilst gaining worldwide recognition as a key player in the scene!
DJ wise you can catch Scope regularly at his Yello residency in Belfast, Nothern Ireland and also at various party hotspots around the globe. Including gigs in Amsterdam, Budapest, Bydgoszcz, Dubai, Dublin, Helsinki, Istanbul, Lodz, London, Newcastle, Poznan, St Malo, Tbilisi, Valencia, Warsaw, in recent months.
