POPTRONIK takes a scoot of the web introducing you to new music artists and generally bringing you the buzz on all that is creating a HOT FUSS in the music world. JACKIE SCOTT: “I got the chills on the back of my neck” and all the way through my body as New Yorker Jackie Scott struck up a chord! Whoa no half measures here, it’s a full-on electro explosion. Jackie goes in on the hip-rap vibe be-set to a pulsating dance ready flurry of dirty electro buzz - on album pre-curser release “Train Wreck” . As her Bio quotes she’s a party fun girl with balls bigger than Justin Bieber - at a listen to this we are not left in any doubt about that! Anyway, this track holds promise of a budding electro pop vixen and we couldn’t help but freakishly lush out on its sheer boldness of approach and overall hot mess. We guess some day’s you just have to unleash your electro party vamp side. Today was one of those days. WATCH: Jackie Scott – "Train Wreck" HERE

Jackie Scott is back, for those who do not know this girl BePop a few months ago we featured her single LoveSick and make an exclusive interview with her.


Now she presents her new song entitled Train Wreck, and cannot have a better title as the song is crazy from beginning to end, she sings, whispers, speaks, raps and screams in the song. A strong electro beat, suggestive lyrics and a catchy sound that grows second to second makes this song quite interesting and different from what we usually hear on the radio.

-To begin, who is Jackie Scott?
Jackie Scott is a pop star in the making. This talented New York-based recording artist may be flying under the radar right now, but with a set of lungs like Pink and a songwriting style that’s party electro-pop (with some surprising substance) she’s about to take the world by storm.

-What are the advantages of being an independent artist?
I get to do whatever I want! As an independent artist, I can be creative and really experiment. I can change direction at anytime. My first two songs, Superstars
and Love Sick, are both dance/pop with bit of rock feel to them. But right now I’m working on a track that is just completely different. The whole sound is edgier. I knew I was on the right track when my mom seemed totally uncomfortable with the lyrics (laughs) – it’s not Disney that’s for sure! And I’m glad that I can do that as an artist. I’m glad I can let my creative side wander and people can judge me for better or worse and it really doesn’t make much of a difference either way. Of course, I do hope people like whatever I’m doing!

-how was the process to release and people know your music?
Getting my music out is a lot of work, but really exciting. So much goes into it that it becomes a very personal project. It feels like so much is at stake and I wonder will people like it and relate? Will they like it more than my last song? Will they share it with friends? Will they download it? Even silly stuff, like, will I get more fans on facebook? But when people love my music, all of the hard work pays off and I’m the happiest person in the world.

I especially love knowing my music is playing at a party. Like, the other day I was at this bar Green Rock, near where I live, and the DJ played one of my songs. All of my friends were screaming and singing along – as best they could after a few drinks at least! To use a Lady Gaga lyric, I was so happy I could die and be alright.

-What elements inspire you when you’re writing and producing a new song?
For me, writing a song is all about the lyrics and melody. A hot beat is really important, too, but I write lyrics first. Randomly, I’ll be in the shower, or driving or waiting for a the subway and thinking about little moments and life experiences, which leads to daydreams and then words just get connected in ways that turn me on. So I write them down or just start to sing them out loud. Next thing I know, I have a song. I get inspired by people, like my friends and by relationships past and present. I’m really interested in vice as a theme, too, like anything indulgent, dirty and fringe, so some of my new material reflects that more. Musically, right now I love wild unpredictable synth, grimy bass and chopped up, manipulated vocals.

-Tell us about your single Love Sick.
I wanted to write a song about going out and clubbing and being involved with a guy who is sort of like a weekend thing. We have great physical chemistry and see each other out all the time and sometimes mess around. But it will never be much more than that, which makes me upset. Of course, that won’t keep me from going out because I love dancing and also because I’m hoping to run into him! The other link in the song is the similarity between the way love and music both physically affect the body. Both can get your pulse racing.

-Have you listened to some Latin American artists or songs?
Well the obvious artists, like Shakira, who I love! The first album that broke her in the U.S. is still my favorite of hers. The best track is “Eyes like Yours”. My friend turned me onto a cool Mexican act, Rodrigo y Gabriela. They’re really entertaining. And I love reggaeton but I don’t know if that counts as Latin American. Does it?

-What is the song that you can’t stop listening right now.
Well, honestly, my next single! It’s called Train Wreck and it’s my baby. I’m obsessed with it! Besides that my other obsessions are the Britney Spears album, M.I.A.’s Vicki Leekx mixtape and the Proper Villains remix of Bass Down Low (the Cataracs featuring Dev) – it’s ridiculous! -What's next for Jackie Scott. My new song, Train Wreck, will be out soon. Like within the next few weeks, maybe sooner. I’m also planning a photo shoot and music video. And I’m getting ready for some live shows. If you’re in the New York area, you should come!

Jackie Scott is an independent NYC-based recording artist and songwriter. Her party girl lyrics, infectious hooks and spunky electro-pop sound make her Top 40-worthy — and she’s got the look to match. Jackie’s debut song, “Superstars”, and her second single, “Love Sick”, are out now on iTunes. She’s busy in the studio working on the rest of the tracks for her forthcoming EP.

What’s the first thing you would say to someone when they ask you to describe yourself as an artist?
I’m like Elvis mixed with Lady Gaga and Courtney Love in the body of Britney Spears. I want to make music that sexy as hell, original, danceable and fun. Day to day I’m pretty down to earth, but I’m the crazy one of my friends and when I make music I just want people to feel that energy — like I’m about to go wild, rip heads off, chug a bottle of Rumple Minze or something and then make out with the nearest bystander. I want my music to turn people on, turn people off, turn ‘em on again and make ‘em go insane.

How long have you been in the industry?
I’ve been singing since I left the womb and I’ve been writing poetry and songs since I was a kid. Then when I was 16, I got really lucky. I met a local producer who let me record a professional demo CD. We even shopped it to labels in New York. It was a great learning experience and got me totally hooked.

After high school I ended up taking a break from music though to concentrate on college, but I never stopped writing and singing for fun. Then about a year ago – after listening to Lady Gaga, Ke$ha and Katy Perry really blow up – I said to myself, fuck it, I can totally do this! I have to do this. I can write songs that are just as good, if not better, and I want to make music my life. I found a producer in New York and he and I had amazing chemistry right away. We’ve been working together for about a year now and we truly
believe BIG things will happen for us soon.

Do you have any projects out now?
I just put my second single, “Love Sick”, out. It’s on all the music sites, like iTunes, plus it’s on my website and Facebook page. Love Sick is an upbeat pop/dance song, but the lyrics are about messing around with a guy who always screws you over but he’s so hard to resist anyway.

I’m also recording a third song right now called “Train Wreck”. I am more excited about this than anything I have done yet. It’s way edgy. I’m obsessed with it and I’m going to make a ridiculously hot music video for it this spring. I want the video to be sort of raw
and glamorous at the same time. Maybe something like Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” video meets Fiona Apple’s “Criminal” video. Or like the Prodigy video “Smack my Bitch up” starring Paris Hilton. I don’t want to say anymore though! You’ll just have to wait and see.
I hope to release an EP by summer and I might also start working on a side project, a really cool electropop/dubstep mixtape. I’m so jealous that Britney Spear’s new songs have some of that flavor because Ifeel like she beat me to it. I’m like, ‘hey, that’s what I wanted to do’! I’m gonna go way harder and grimier though. Something real bassheads can appreciate and pop fans have never heard before.

What inspires your music?
My music is inspired by my friends and my love life. And, even though it sounds sort of messed up, going out and partying too hard. When I started this project my idea was to make music that my friends and I would love to play at parties. Lately though I’m exploring some edgier darker stuff. I like to write songs that completely glamorize and hype up everything that it means to be young and having fun, but on occasion I like to interject very subtle social criticism, which for me really is more like self awareness in
an age of instant gratification and over indulgence.

Where are you from?
I’m from New Jersey. I grew up in a relatively small town in South Jersey called Cinnaminson. It’s considered a suburb of Philadelphia. It’s a funny place and I think everyone there is a little weird in someway or another. But I think that’s a great thing! Everyone always tell me I’m weird and I think it has something to do with growing up there. People in Cinnaminson tend to be real straight shooters. They have a style of humor that seems extreme to outsiders. That culture has made me who I am.

After high school I went to Rutgers University, which is about an hour north of where I grew up. Rutgers is where I met all of my best friends and had some of the best times of life. It holds a special place in my heart. I definitely consider it a home.

I also lived in Philly for a bit before landing in Hoboken, which is in New Jersey less than a mile outside of New York City. I’ve been here a little over a year now and I love it. I feel like I’m living my own version of Sex in the City right now.

What artists in the industry inspire you the most today?
I’m really inspired by female entertainers who write their own songs, like Lady Gaga, M.I.A. and Lily Allen. As fa - Always Therro Magazine

Bio

Meet Jackie Scott: an irresistible electro-pop singer/songwriter with a playful voice, infectious hooks, a party girl persona and bigger balls than Justin Bieber. Yes, this rising star has got the charisma and the talent to take pop music to the next level.

Based in New York City, Jackie is an independent artist currently writing and recording at D-otherside Music Group with producer/remixer Lior Magal (remix credits include Pink and Nelly Furtado).

Jackie released the EP "Pink Hot Blush" in February 2012. It includes the singles "Love Sick", "Train Wreck" and "Don't Mess with Me" as featured on websites like PopLedge.co.uk, PopQuizBeat and SoSoGay.org.

She performs regularly in New York City and the surrounding area.

“My music is inspired by my friends, our crazy nights out together and, of course, love," Jackie says. But make no mistake, it's not your typical bubblegum pop and her variety of vamp is beyond the stereotypical Daddy’s girl-turned-pop singer. Jackie’s creative vision and innate confidence make her a standout.
