Scott Molloy is one of those people for whom drum & bass was the soundtrack to a youth well spent. Born in Birmingham and raised in nearby Aston, Molloy was caught by the bug that was seemingly passed down through the ages, through plasterboard walls and shared experience. Funding his growing habit for collecting records by working day jobs in factories, restaurants and delivering pizzas Molloy made a name for himself as DJ Hazard by playing the clubs of his native Birmingham throughout the 90s. Building on his bookings and general success he took to Kool FM Midlands alongside MCs Biggie and Acapello to broadcast his sets, broadening his reach out past his immediate surroundings. Following a slew of self funded releases and 12 s on Formation Records and his own imprint, Radius, Molloy was getting play from the big name d&b DJs of the time including one DJ Hype, who would release several of his singles on his Ganja Records and go on to make him the first non Ganja Kru member to be signed exclusively to his True Playaz camp. The recognition Molloy received from the team behind Playaz has proved to be one of his most pivotal moments with the platform the label gave him serving to be an ample jumping off point. It gave tracks such as Use Your Brain , Get The F*** Up and Mr Happy the machine they needed to become the jump up anthems they are today across a scene that spans the globe. Sonically Hazard s productions are fierce and angular with a riff bombast that works to excite the room and it s that energy that s stamped all over his FABRICLIVE 65 mix.
