Scott Blackwell is a Christian dance music artist, generally credited with being the first artist to produce such music for the Christian marketplace.[1][2] In addition to releasing his own albums has produced many others and has founded several record labels.[3]

Personal life and music career[edit]

Born in Fort Worth, Texas, Blackwell got his start as a disc jockey, eventually picking up a position supervising MYX Records (a division of Frontline Records).[3][4] Upon leaving Frontline he founded N•Soul Records. By 1995 he had produced 11 projects for N•Soul Records and had acquired over 50 general market production credits.[5] N•Soul became best known for the Nitro Praise series, which put praise and worship songs to various forms of dance music.[3] He left N•Soul in 1999 citing concerns about the vision of the company's leadership. He then founded two record labels to focus on different genres of dance music.[6] As of 2011, Blackwell continues to perform in clubs in the greater Los Angeles area.[citation needed]
