Mr Scruff announces 17th London Koko residency for May 2013
Story by Jack Foley
FOLLOWING his huge Be The Music tour throughout the UK last year Mr Scruff returns for another set of headline dates, including his 17th consecutive residency show at London’s Koko on Saturday, May 18, 2013.
You can hear the entire set from his most recent Koko gig here.
Scruff will be at the controls for the whole night, serving up a vinyl melting pot of jazz, soul, hip hop, funk, disco, deep house, reggae, dubstep, afrobeat, latin, electrofunk and plenty of goodies that don’t fit into any category… and no lumps of fat or gristle.
Mr Scruff’s latest single, Be The Music/Nervous Energy, is out now on 12” and download at the Ninjashop.
Mr Scruff will also be appearing at Electric Elephant, Outlook and Dimensions festivals later this year.
