I will be back soon with a new mix from yours truly but in the meantime...enjoy this mix by one of my favorite producers, Mr Scruff.
For those that don't know, Mr. Scruff is the recording name of Andy Carthy (born in 1972 in Macclesfield, England), a British DJ and artist. His DJ name was inspired by his scruffy facial hair, as well as his trademark loose-lined drawing style. He has been DJing since 1994, at first in and around Manchester, then nationwide. He is known for DJing 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.
Check the video 'Get A Move On'. It was my introduction to all that is Scruffy!
