Mr. Scruff is the recording name of Andy Carthy (born 10 February 1972.
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. 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."
