Sun Down Circle #027: Mr. Scruff
Who better to set the tone for our first Sun Down Circle Session this year than master selector, DJ and producer Mr. Scruff? Famed for his marathon sets, the English turntable legend will lead us into a balmy Bali night with a seven-hour musical journey packed full of surprises but sure to be an esoteric blend of house, disco and Afro and Latin sounds.
Scruff’s talent for keeping it fresh stems from his extensive history and obsession with music, which began as a child when a friend played the Street Sounds LP “Crucial Electro Volume 1.” After years of experimenting with myriad genres and dutifully learning the ropes of mixing and editing, Scruff—whose real name is Andy Carthy—dove in deep while studying fine art at university in the mid-nineties. His all-embracing repertoire (and cheeky take on it) is reflected in his genre-blurring discography, which includes “Trouser Jazz” (2002), the epic mix CD “Keep It Solid Steel” (2004), and “Ninja Tuna” (2008) for the renowned label Ninja Tune, which signed him in 1998, cemented his name on the scene and opened the doors for collaborations with the likes of Quantic, Danny Breaks, Alice Russell, Andreya Triana, Pete Simpson, Kaidi Tatham and Roots Manuva.
His upcoming set at the Beach Club marks a third return for Scruff, who helped kick off series in 2015 before coming back for a weekend edition with fellow crate-digger extraordinaire, Gilles Peterson. Join us for another phenomenal Sun Down Circle on Monday, 8 April when he’s joined by local favourites Dea Barandana and Tantra, who will collectively soundtrack the sky’s brilliant transformation through all the hues while the waves roll in behind them.
