Artist Portrait

Young American Primitive

US
Producer of Dance
A.k.a. Greg Scanavino

Prominent American producer/remixer, and one of the more popular acts to originate from the Bay Area's early 90s house scene. Released several 12"s and one full length CD on the San Francisco based label ZoëMagik, and made several compilation appearances, culminating with the sample heavy "These Waves" being included on Sasha and Digweed's Northern Exposure mix album. Apparently impressed by his remixing skills (as displayed on the Geffen released Stone Roses' single "Begging You"), Scanavino was signed by Geffen in '96 and finished his second full length album in late '97. The track "Beyond" was slated for single release in November '97 (complete with music video created by San Francisco based multimedia studio Mind's Eye Media), and the album, titled "African Cosmopolitan", was slated for a January '98 release, however, neither saw the light of day, and YAP was apparently dropped from the label. Scanavino returned briefly to the electronic music scene in 2001 performing remix duties on two popular progressive house tracks, as well as collaborating with fellow American producer and DJ Jimmy Van M and vocalist Terra Deva on the fantastic "Forget Time". In 2005, he contributed the track "Voyage To The Great Attractor" to DJ Jonathan Lisle for the second volume in Bedrock's Original Series, but has remained relatively inactive for the most part.
