Belfast's Scope debuts on NRK

NRK Music welcomes Belfast DJ/producer Scope (AKA Ric McClelland) to the fold, and his debut for NRK has 'epic' stampled all over it. Influenced by producers as varied as Kerri Chandler, Ian Pooley and Funk D'Void, Scope has been making great headway in the production world with some stella works for labels like Urban Torque, Forensic and CR2. bridging the gaps between soulful, deep house and techier territories, Scope has also remixed for the likes of Francois Dubois, Milton Jackson and Little Green men.

On his NRK debut, Scope delivers a great anthemic deep house production. "Omoplata" delivers steady, swinging punchy beats, heavy , thick stabs and dramatic strings not heard since Quentin Harris's "Let's Be Young". Comparisons will be made to Quentin's finest hour, but Scope commands his own style here. The "313" mix gets all acidic on yo ass with some classic old skool pianos giving this mix a nice retro feel.

"Omoplata" gets a full release on digital late September 2008.
