Scott Thorough is a Brooklyn born rap producer, film composer and INFP Scorpio. Thorough began making beats and producing albums as a young adult, eventually working with rap and indie artists across the country.
Mr. Thorough has made many records, and besides being a member of Nuclear Family, he has made collaborative projects with The Boys And Girls Club, Tone Tank & Scott Thorough, Big Urban, Junk Science, StarPower, Samson, SCRiBE The Verbalist, M.C. K~Swift, Safe, and Cavalier, as well as provided beats for Iller Than Theirs, Tone Tank, Homeboy Sandman, Core Rhythm, !LLUMIN@TE, Bisco Smith, Awkword, The Project, Kool A.D., PSYCHOEGYPTIAN, Bi-Polar Bear, Lu…Rreals, Baje One, U.S, Serengeti, and more, and has also provided remixes for Open Thought, Junk Science, Cake on Cake, SAFE, Cassettes Won’t Listen, Instant Cities, and Cool Calm Pete among others.
Scott thinks his beats sound like how it would feel like to get blasted in the face with an air cannon while standing in space under neon lights while still respecting the architects.
As a composer for film, Scott is sensitive to the art of storytelling. He composed his first score for the short film Mariachi (Dir. Elena Greenlee, Aspen Shortsfest 2010), and immediately found a comfortable fit making original music for film and advertising. Using hip hop aesthetics as his jumping off point, Scott employs sounds of varied cultures to carefully bind and examine the relationship between the moving image and music. His work has been used for major advertising campaigns and he has scored several feature films including Newlyweeds (Dir. Shaka King, Sundance ‘13) and Manos Sucias (Dir. Josef Wladyka Tribeca ’14) receiving awards and high praise at top film festivals.
