TranceFixxed: Hi Scott. It’s great to meet you. At the end of last year, you launched a new record label ‘RΞBOOTΞD’. Firstly, is there any significance in why you chose the name ‘RΞBOOTΞD’?
Scott: Great to meet you too. Founding a label was a central part of the plan. I coined the term ‘RΞBOOTΞD’ because I believe that it can be best defined as “the act of starting over and rediscovery with the ultimate goal to surpass all perceived benchmarks or expectations”.
RΞBOOTΞD sets clear, defined targets of where Trance, as a genre is at now and where it wants to be. In other words, it’s a brand for a track, a remix, an album, an event and a record label but also a direction that we can all choose to follow. We’re open to signing whatever packs and erupts the dance-floor, but just to be clear, it has to be proper Trance music.
TranceFixxed: What should fans expect from releases on RΞBOOTΞD?
Scott: I want fans to anticipate every release on RΞBOOTΞD. My priority is total quality above quantity. We have exceptionally high standards with regards to output on RΞBOOTΞD and we don’t want to release thousands of sub-standard tracks. It is important that fans know that when we are putting out a track, it will be sensational! I want to work with a select few hand-picked artists, develop them and of course release my own material and ultimately, I would love the fans to put their trust in RΞBOOTΞD.
TranceFixxed: The second release on RΞBOOTΞD is your new collaboration ‘Airfoil‘ with Marc Mitchell, which was released on 29th September. What was Marc like to work with?
Scott: I have known Marc since the early days of my DJing career. We were both signed to Stress Records back in the day and first met there. Whenever I had a gig in Jersey, I would always make time to pop by his studio to catch up. In the end, we decided to make a track together and ‘Scott Bond & Marc Mitchell – Airfoil‘ was the finished product.
TranceFixxed: We ran a competition recently, which you kindly assisted with, to give away a 1 year subscription to the RΞBOOTΞD promo mailing list. As we’ve been asking fans for their favourite remix of ‘Airfoil’, do you have a favourite?
Scott: Naturally, I’m sure that everybody would expect me to say my REBOOTED Remix but to be perfectly honest, it’s impossible to choose as each of those remixes went through rigorous quality control. It’s safe to say that I love them all for a variety of different reasons.
