Blue Boy

When you hear Blue Boy's music you wouldn't in a million years imagine that it had been produced in Glasgow, Scotland. "Remember Me" in particular is honey-dipped in the voodoo-house vocals of America's Deep South, and sun-drenched in the tribal funk of Central and South America. Not what you expect from a country famous for blood sausage and the Loch Ness monster, but then again, Blue Boy is no ordinary Scot. He nurtured his DJ skills in Glasgow and London and was rewarded with a job as touring DJ for British techno-rap-pop collective The Shamen. In '95 he released his first single "Ascension," which was closely followed by his four-track EP Scattered Emotions.

His most celebrated release to date, "Remember Me," is the centerpiece of the Mushroom Jazz compilation, mixed by Mark Farina. It is an intoxicating blend of cut-up soul and loose disco grooves based on "Woman Of The Ghetto," from '70s Blue Note recording artist Marlena Shaw. "Remember Me" is soul on wax, pure and simple. Along with the Glasgow Underground label, DJ Q, and DJ Harri, Blue Boy is taking Scottish music production to the next level with style and grace.
