Manchester-based Mr. Scruff is a producer, cartoonist and cross-genre selector who loves to play long DJ sets, and occasionally B2B sets with similarly wide-eared end excitable DJs. He has been DJing since 1984, and has been getting paid for it since 1994. His DJ sets can range from deep soul/funk/reggae/afro/jazz/latin/hip-hop to harder edged electro/house/new wave/techno/electronic, often all in the same night. A sound obsessive who likes to get in the venue early to set up and sound check, he brings his mixer, effects, vinyl (unless he is playing upside down on a windy boat), cables, a sound engineer and some boiled eggs. Sometimes he brings VJ Jim or MC Kwasi. He usually brings socks, but occasionally forgets.
