An Interview With Ninja Tuna’s Mr. Scruff

335

Mr. Scruff is renowned for his funky musical wizardry. As a DJ he handily blends records from Fela Kuti to Bob Marley to long-forgotten soul gems. As a producer he creates a sensual brew of swampy downtempo and kicky dance beats. The man behind the music is just as sophisticated and quirky. Giant Step had a cuppa tea with Scruff and chatted about crappy sound systems, dancing fruit and all the other nonsense that goes on in clubs these days.
