From the UK cathedral city of Norwich, Scott Andrews has been a revelation in the progressive house scene since winning the "Heroin" remix competition for Denis A's DAR imprint in 2010. Since then, his work has graced some of the finest modern labels including Axon, Balkan Connection and Sonic Union's Lowbit. Furthermore, his work has been licensed to high profile Armada compilations for Dash Berlin and Markus Schulz, leading to support from all quarters of the globe from Nick Warren and Hernan Cattaneo to Greg Benz and James Warren. Not solely content with support from the musical glitterati, Scotty is active in the DJ'ing scene having built up a considerable following from work in his hometown. Such groundwork has since become the platform for his impressive gigs at Bedrock club nights and an upcoming daytime event at London's famous Egg Club with Solarstone, set to further cement his reputation.

With such a sparkling portfolio of tracks compiled in a short two-year period, Scotty's work for Proton Music has seen a stellar interpretation of Nick Stoynoff's "Berghain", while work for sister label Particles has seen a remix of Tvardovsky's "Path of Light" and an imminent full release of the "Spring Particles 2012" standout, "What Makes Us Smile" with remixes from Magitman and Greg Benz.

Scotty's "complete dedication to his craft" mean that his work has embodied a distinctive melodic texture, combining elements of "house, techno and electronica", taking his listeners on a path of enlightenment through his craft. Now, through the guidance of AandR maestro Renee Ugarteche, Proton is proud to announce the release of Scotty.A's first full EP for the label, accompanied by masterful artwork from Ben Mautner.

The title track, "The World Turns and We Turn With It" encapsulates Scotty's "enthusiasm for electronic music". A deep contemplative piece, airy pads and reverb- heavy percussive claves provide a subtle blend of rhythm and melody on a backbone of strong metronomic kick drum. A repetitive melodic riff then wends itself effortlessly across a seven-minute track that radiates a warm atmospheric glow with the impression that we are merely actors playing our parts on a larger cosmic stage. This is modern progressive house in a very real, visceral sense.

Partner track, "Nothing As It Seems" provides a more upbeat vibe to the EP with its ticking hi-hats and clicking percussion. A wonderful melodic refrain keeps energy high while the first movement builds impressively towards a full ensemble of detuned chord stabs and further melodic development. Meanwhile, a deep, pulsing bass line keeps the rhythm firmly in tact as it conjoins with percussion and chords. Demonstrating a mastery of the tools at his disposal, Scotty.A hits the nail firmly on the head with this dance floor gem.

"The World Turns" but in Scotty.A's ever widening orbit, 'everything' is as it seems.
