One of Australiaâ€™s most in demand female DJs, Emily Scott is back in Brisbane later this month.
The internationally known DJ/ model has recently proven her talent by mixing club compilation â€˜NOW Dance Summer 2012â€™, while Emily's latest EP, 'Boom Bau', has been released on Definitive Recordings. However, Emily has enjoyed music and performing since she was young. â€œMe and my little brother would always make up dance routines and perform them in front of the family. We would make little songs and have a boombox ... and we would record our tracks on there.â€
Emily was inspired to become a DJ after working in a nightclub handling the lighting duties when she was 19. â€œThe lighting area was up next to the DJ so every night I would be there controlling the lights, and I learnt how to make people feel differently with the types of light you use. So I was up there with the DJ watching how he would change the music and it would change the way people were dancing, and I just really got into dance music then.â€
Not only is Emily a talented DJ, but her modelling career has taken off both at home and abroad, with the Canberra-born vixen known internationally as one of â€˜The Sexiest Women in the Worldâ€™. Aside from gracing the covers of glamour magazines, Emily has also appeared on Australia's â€˜Dancing With The Starsâ€™ as well as the latest season of British reality series, â€˜Iâ€™m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Hereâ€™.
With an upcoming appearance at The Exchange, Emily says sheâ€™s looking forward to performing in Brisbane. â€œI always love playing in Brisbane. Being from the Gold Coast myself, when I was 18 it was a big special thing if we were driving up to Brisbane to go out clubbing. It's always got a special spot for me so I'm pumped.â€
Emily Scott plays The Exchange Hotel on Feb 9.
