My guest is Scottie B. He’s a legendary Baltimore DJ, and the cofounder of Unruly Records. His DJing and his work with Shawn Caesar, Miss Tony, Bob The Equalizer and many more are all a huge part of what made Baltimore what it is today.
He talks about the Baltimore club scene of the 80s, and how that milieu led to the creation of Baltimore club music. He explains how his and Shawn Caesar’s unique DJ styles blossomed into a recorded art form and a genre of its own. He explains how he sees himself as part of the always-evolving culture of dance music, and not just a player within the sub-genre of Baltimore club.
Mike Riley’s art this week is an homage to Professor Griff’s Last Asiatic Disciples.
