Welcome to the Party
from hip hop DJ to Harsh Noise!
Michael Scott started his musical adventures as a breakdancer in 1988 in the San Diego area. This led to extensive activities as a DJ and a producer throughout the 1990s in the hip hop scene. In the 2000s he expanded his sound trip into the worlds of circuit bending, avant garde, experimental music and Noise as Koobaatoo Asparagus. Welcome to the Party is a concept album containing tracks from the 90s all the way up to electronic Harsh Noise of the present day.
