About Mr. Scruff

The authorial nickname of Manchester native Andy Carthy (his neatly trimmed beard being the source), Mr. Scruff attracted the buzz of DJs and critics alike with the 1995 Rob's Records release "Sea Mammal." The appearance soon after of the Frolic EP turned buzz to blare for Carthy, with remix offers from the likes of DJ Food and Lamb flowing in. The Large Pies EP and Scruff's self-titled debut arrived in 1997, and Keep It Unreal, his first for Ninja Tune, followed in 1999. Scruff's frequent DJ sets include everything from '60s and '70s soul-jazz and funk to scratchy old reggae and dub 45s, classic hip-hop, schmaltzy vocal pop, and new-school electronica. ~ Sean Cooper
