Dig out your dancing moves and get to the Cambridge Junction at the end of the month for a night with DJ Mr Scruff who will be dropping tunes across the board from soul, funk, hip hop, jazz, reggae, latin, african, ska, disco, house funk and breaks.
As a producer he makes music that draws on these influences, with a large dose of cheek and good humour, while his cartoon drawings illustrate gig flyers, record sleeves and CD covers, and usually accompany him at gigs as live animated visuals.
DJ, Andy Carthy aka Mr Scruff, had his first encounter with mixing as a 12 year old in 1984, when a friend played him some of his uncle’s electro records opening his eyes and ears to the art of mixing records.
Soon after he was making his own pause-button mixtapes.
By 1987 he was proficient at turntable mixing and editing leading to his first break in 1994, when he met Barney Doodlebug, a DJ/Doodler who gave him his first Manchester gig, on a Sunday night in a venue called Dry Bar.
