2012 has been another strong year for the So Called Scumbags (James Edwards & David Minns). Their first release of the year ‘Good Times’ on Grin Recordings hit the #1 download spot on Trackitdown & DJ Download and gained national airplay from Andi Durrant on Capital FM. The follow up release ‘Sundazed’ featured on compilations for Defected & Skint Records with Annie Nightingale (BBC Radio 1) stating it was the sound of ‘Summer 2012′ . Continued support from the likes of Fatboy Slim on XFM, Roger Sanchez & Sister Bliss show that things are moving in the right direction for the charismatic london duo.
The diary has been full all summer with DJ sets at the Glade Festival and a main stage set at the High Definition Festival alongside Mark Knight & Fedde Le Grand. In the clubs, residencies at Egg with Read The Crowd & Cargo with Type have been a highlight, whilst their Grin Recordings label parties @ Gigalum have been roadblocks, featuring Grin resident Tim Cullen and guests such as Kaiserdisco, Mark Fanciulli & Paolo Mojo. Their seasonal, Southcity events returned from winter hibernation to a new venue on the roof top of The Bussey Building Warehouse. Moving to this new venue for 2012 the launch party featured Jody Wisternoff, Alex P & Colin Dale. Now signed exclusively to Concrete Promo Management the big picture is beginning to unfold.
