Vinylgroover

Real Name:
Scott Lee Attrill
Profile:
Once a major UK based happy hardcore producer. Has diversified into hard house, hard trance and techno in recent years. He was born in February, 1976.

Vinylgroover's career started due to his parents friendship with the owners of Sterns in Worthing. At the age of 14 he was there for an under-18s event called "Chance to Dance". He was talking to Carl Cox & Mensa when they were informed that Grooverider was going to arrive late for his set. Mensa asked Carl Cox to cover but he asked him to give Vinylgroover a go instead.
He then started hanging around the Fusion record shop in Portsmouth, where he was eventually given a job, and at 16 years old he became the shop manager. Working in the record shop gave him access to Fusion's studios, where his initial forays into production were engineered by Jim Sullivan. He also wrote for Wax magazine reviewing the latest hardcore releases. He was also the resident DJ for Fusion and Double Dipped.

He left the hardcore scene behind in 1999 to concentrate on hard house. This caused some anger with the hardcore rave community as he was seen as someone who left the scene for more money in the hard house scene. Also it was felt that his productions leading up to his departure were not of his usually high standard.

Vinylgroover's first sets i have on tape around 94 can be a bit sketchy (i guess he was around 16 at the time!) but he came into his own soon after that and i really think what he did for the hardcore scene through the happy years was phenomenal.. his tracks were solid and his sets where a joy to listen to. Im happy for him doing well in the hard dance scene but hardcore would welcome him back with open arms anytime !

Although a lot of people think Vinylgroovers sets are a touch Cheesy, I have to disagree. Okay he does play the odd slice of Emanthal but all in all his sets are well thiought out and mixed to perfection (Dreamscape 27 an exception I think he was Pissed). His scratching is also very tight and not over used. His production skills are also of a very high standard, and some Happy Hardcore Classics such as Time and my Little Phantasy have come from the world of Vinylgroover:)
