Mr. Scruff

Vrai Nom:
Andrew Carthy
Profil:
Born 10 February 1972, Macclesfield, Cheshire, England, a British DJ and artist. He lives in Stockport, Greater Manchester, and studied fine art at the Psalter Lane campus of Sheffield Hallam University.
Before he could make a living from his music alone, he worked as a shelf-stacker in the Burton Road branch of Kwik Save.
His DJ name was inspired by his scruffy facial hair, as well as his trademark loose-lined drawing style. He has been deejaying since 1994, at first in and around Manchester, then nationwide. He is known for deejaying in marathon sets (often exceeding six hours), his eclectic musical taste, his love of a "nice cup of tea" and the quirky home-produced visuals and animations associated with his music. In an interview he said: "It’s about putting a lot of effort in and paying attention to detail. I get annoyed if I don’t take risks. I’m very hard on myself."

Easily one of the greatest living DJ's on the planet. His style is very varied ranging from Trip-Hop to House to Funk/Soul, Reggae and Beyond, and I believe his eclecticism is the key to his longevity because his style isn't pigeonholed as being part of any trend or sub-genre and what he does is timeless. To appreciate the man fully - You've got to see him live and I have to admit, pretty much every other DJ I've seen live pales in comparison to Scruffy. Expect the night to start off mellow then when it reaches peak time - It gets absolutely nuts!

Plus he's a really nice (and very intelligent) guy in real life too

Mr Scruff is regularly voted as "most innovative DJ" (or similar) in various polls. He prefers to play long sets, and it is rare to see him DJ for less than three hours. He plays a whole mixture of stuff, from hip hop to jazz, from breaks to funk and all sorts of stuff in between. His own productions are unique, funky and amusing - he likes to describe his stuff as "trouser jazz". A really brilliant DJ with a great sense of humour, even the visuals are great - his child-like animations are displayed on big screens, proclaiming things like "drink tea" and "eat pies". His real name is Andrew Carthy, and his most excellent website (http://www.mrscruff.com) should be seen by all.
