Tony Scott has been meticulously releasing premier electronic music since the early nineties under various pseudonyms, yet most would recognise him as Edit Select due to his characteristically driving and powerful tracks.
Having started Edit Select Recordings in 2007, the label has now seen monumental releases from techno mainstays, such as Dino Sabatini, Giorgio Gigli, and Mark Broom. Edit Select's production process has gained him a notable reputation within scene of a pure perfectionist, with a very strong back catalogue of releases such as Bauer on Berlin's Ostgut Ton, as well as his debut album Phlox on Prologue Records.
Stoney Roads was lucky enough to sit down with Tony ahead of his Australia tour this June to pick his brains over his top 5 tracks that have been a huge influence to him over his long and storied career.
1. The Final Hour - X101
I played this track all the time at my residency in Glasgow [at Gain] back in the day. Great memories - good and bad...
2. The Final Frontier - Underground Resistance
Without Underground Resistance, where would we be? A huge part of all things techno and beyond.
3. Time Out (Acid Dub) - DJ T
The first time I heard this, Andrew Weatherall was playing it. As per, I sneaked a look at the maestro's selection!
4. Carousel - Koenig Cylinders
Lenny Dee under alias. This totally blew me away when I heard it! Game Changer!
5. Track - Kenny Larkin
Kenny Larkin had a huge impact on the scene and this is one of my many favourites from the great man.
