Mr Scruff - Get A Move On

Mr Scruff is the recording name of Andy Carthy (born in 1972 in Macclesfield, Cheshire, England), a British DJ and artist, who lives in Stockport, Greater Manchester. He 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 a branch of Burton Road.

His DJ name was inspired by his scruffy facial hair, as well as his trademark loose lined drawing style. He has been a DJ since 1994. He is known for DJing in marathon sets (often exceeding six hours), and also for 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".

We ''ll have Mr Scruff also in the next post, so, for the time being just listen his song which has the title "Get A Move On"...
