3 years of delving deeper into the production world and a lot more kit, he released an EP on his own label 'Axia Records' under the name Grey Matter in October 1996 which was well received by Dave Mothersole who reviewed it in Muzik magazine February 1997.
Grey Matter - Lost In Thought EP (Axia)
New boy Scott Hallam with an ambitious five-tracker which veers from 150bpm acid techno and slo-mo hip hop breaks, right through to old school, bottom heavy warehouse grooves and Depeche Mode-meets-Juan Atkins purism. The real surprise, here, though, is how thoroughly listenable the whole thing is. Innovative, imaginative, and pretty bloody good.
Branching out into electronica and dowmtempo chill out grooves he later released 3 albums between 2002 and 2003 (Sonic Textures, Thirty & Lost In Thoughts)
