It didn't take long before he was spending his University money on Synths and writing Rave music in his bedroom at home. It was only after submitting a demo tape to 23rd Precinct Records in Glasgow, that Scott got his first break under the name Q-Tex.From that day, Scott started producing Rave and Hardcore for various labels such as Shoop! & Bass Generator, before going on to start his own labels Evolution Records & Twisted Vinyl.

During this period he also started writing for legendary labels such as Rotterdam Records, Dwarf, Mokum, Babyboom, H2OH and many others.In the late 90's, Scott concentrated on his main label 'Evolution' and came up with the hardcore rave classic 'Elysium'. This track paved the way for the rebirth of UK hardcore in 2000 and the subsequent release of some of his monsters such as 'Neckbreaker' 'Commence' and the classic 'Boomstick'.
