Info about Mr. Scruff

British DJ, producer, and artist.

Born: 10 February 1972 in Macclesfield, Cheshire, England, UK.

Carthy lives in Stockport, Greater Manchester, and 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 the Burton Road branch of Kwik Save.

His DJ name was inspired by his scruffy facial hair, as well as his trademark loose-lined drawing style. He has been DJ-ing since 1994, at first in and around Manchester, then nationally, and internationally. Known for his marathon DJ-ing sets (often exceeding six hours), eclectic musical taste, love of a "nice cup of tea", and the quirky home-produced visuals and animations associated with his music.

In an interview Carthy 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."
