Scott & Leon met in Bobby’s Nightclub in Tenerife in 1990 where they were both DJ’s. Scott was the promotional manager and head DJ; Leon was a young 20-year-old looking for his break, Scott recognized his talent and immediately gave him a residency at the club. The pair quickly became great friends and teamed up to start to produce club music. In 2000, Scott & Leon brought their first single to the UK Garage community and before long "You Used to Hold Me" was a Top 20 hit, peaking at Number 19 on the UK Single Charts and the single went on to become one of the UK Garage scene’s biggest anthems.
