Scott McIlroy (born 1971, Coventry, England), better known as Doc Scott or Nasty Habits, is a British drum and bass DJ and producer.[1][2]

Biography[edit]

He originally started to DJ at clubs and raves such as Amnesia House and The Eclipse in 1989/1990, before appearing all over the country and in the mid 1990s play at the seminal Metalheadz at the Blue Note nights.[3][4][2] Goldie has called him "The King of the Rollers".[3]

His first track was "NHS" released on Simon 'Bassline' Smith's label Absolute 2.[5] From there, he would record classics on labels such as Reinforced Records and Metalheadz, such as "Here Come The Drumz / Dark Angel",[5][6][7] "Deranged", "VIP Drumz/Unofficial Ghost",[5], and "Shadow Boxing" (released on his own 31 Records label).[8][5][9]
