Emily Scott, One of The Sexiest Women in the World

Known Internationally for her title as one of The Sexiest Women in the World, how did Emily Scott so quickly become an artist who fills clubs and turns dance floors into places of pure bedlam and euphoria? "Passion and dedication". 

At the tender age of 11 Pioneer Pro DJ Emily Scott started her first music radio station with her little bro produced in her bedroom with a mic and a Boom Box, this was certainly a sign of things to come. “My happiest memories as a kid are always centred around the music that was being played." Whilst stydying dance at high school Em spent most of her time at live music venues listening to Korn and Groove Armada, but the lure of the club eventually proved too strong.

Emily was hired as a lighting technician at Quest (one of Australia's biggest House venues) in 2002. "I was hooked! The music of Roger Sanchez and Fred Falke took me to another level". A natural sense of when to build tension and when to hold it, she honed these skills to perfection during this time. It was her move to the UK that sealed her future, aquiring decks for the first time "All I wanted to do was play". And play she did, performing a sell out nation wide tour in Australia.


Performance is something Emily Scott is accustomed to. Her career as a model sky rocketed her onto UK TV, while the many magazine covers led her to a spot on US hit Entourage and Australia’s Dancing With The Stars. Due to her popularity and international appeal she has been voted Australia’s Sexiest Woman, 9th sexiest (UK) and 44th sexiest woman in the world (USA). Emily clearly performs well in front of a camera, she features in hundreds of glamourous magazines, gracing covers world wide, but it is behind the decks in front of a crowd where both her performance and musical talents shine.“I love the energy of dance music, its effect on people, the uncontrollable need to move. Music and dance are powerful tools unite and uplift."

Over the last two years Em’s presence on-stage and cutting edge music selection has cemented her position in the international DJ circuit. She has mixed high profile compilations for major Australian labels, and had sell out nation- wide tours. Highlights include playing support slots for legendary House DJ Erick Morillo and Pacha NYE and headlining venues and festivals from Australia through Asia. As well as special guest DJ slots for Austereo’s Saturday Night Party People going out nationally to over 40 stations, she regularly guest mixes for NovaNation, and is requested to spin at events for popular Australian Brands for their exclusive awards nights and fashion parades. It is this success that caught the attention of Pioneer who signed her as a ProDJ in 2009, leading her to join the cream of Australian DJ talent as well as international Ambassadors Roger Sanchez, Sander Kleinenberg and Armin van Buuren.




In 2010 she exploded into the scene of music production, and has hit the ground running. A fresh take on House and Tribal beats; bass lines that bounce, hooky vocals and percussion with infectious dance floor groove. This is the Emily Scott sound. Her first release Cortado was snapped up by Neon Underground, and gained radio support worldwide. “I am extremely excited to release my first record. I’m really happy with the track and learnt so much.” Her continued work includes remixes for Australia’s top dance producers, and her latest original The Time Is Now is signed to Roger Sanchez’s new label and will be released 2011.


If there’s one thing you must do its see Emily Scott spin. With a booked solid tour schedule, original tracks and remixes, regular radio slots and her own monthly podcast, it’s all about the music for Em and we eagerly await what’s next for the talented Model / DJ / Producer.
