Biography

The Scratch Perverts are a collective of turntablist DJs from the UK, formed in 1996 by Tony Vegas, Prime Cuts and DJ Plus One. The Scratch Perverts originally consisted of 4 members; Tony Vegas, Renegade, First Rate and Mr. Thing. Having made names for themselves both individually and as a team, The Scratch Perverts soon expanded to a 8-member crew with the addition of Prime Cuts, Harry Love, Killa Kela and DJ Plus One. The collective split for a short period in 2000, then reformed with just 3 members; Tony Vegas, Prime Cuts and DJ Plus One. The other members did not reform due to artistic differences, and have gone on to pursue individual projects.

The Scratch Perverts are generally acknowledged as some of the finest and most influentual turntablists ever. They have contributed countless techniques and pioneered radical innovations in developing the skills and possiblities that can be achieved on a turntable. As a team, they have won two consecutive World DMC Team titles; Prime Cuts also won two consecutive World ITF titles, and Plus One won the World DMC Champion and World Vestax Champion titles. Having become so dominant, they have now retired indefinitely from competition.

Now after winning all there is to offer on the competition circuit they have now began to produce their own music. Their take on hip-hop is going to be used in the broadest sense. Describing hip-hop as being a celebration of all kinds of music just by its very nature the Scratch Perverts forthcoming releases will not be of a typical hip-hop style.
