This past Summer I DJ’d at the Major League Soccer All Star Game in Kansas City, Kansas for the crew at Bumpy Pitch/ The Original Winger. At some point, I got into a conversation with one of the owners of Sporting Kansas City. he asked me what I was doing ere, and as soon as I said DJ, he said: “You have to meet Mike Scott, he’s the Sporting KC official DJ.” So two hours later I’m at the Sporting KC building in Downtown KC, on the rooftop bar, eating some food by the fire, and drinking a Boulevard Brewing Wheat beer. I approach Mike and tell him who sent me. It was as if we had known each other for years. We spoke for more than an hour (while he was DJing, thanks Mike for being so cool). Mike is a humble guy, a terrific digger/ DJ, and after being displaced by Hurricane Katrina, made his way to Kansas City and calls the city his home. With a collection of over 60,000 records, the guy knows his music and his way around vinyl. He is the man about town, the go to DJ in KC. His style flows from genre to genre effortlessly, and if you are in the KC area, I urge you to go check him out. he has toured with Dave Chapelle, played alongside legends such as DJ AM, Biz Markie, Grandmaster Flash and many others. In other words, DJ Mike Scott is the real deal. Flea Market Funk is proud to have DJ Mike Scott in the latest installment of Big Ups. Please enjoy.
