This Wednesday is a big milestone for the Isolation Discs Podcast as we reach double figures! And what better way to celebrate episode 10 than by welcoming the legend that is Mr. Scruff to share his lockdown tracks. The mancunian DJ & producer renowned for his extensive live sets takes time out from homeschooling his 9 year old to chat with Chris about his early days practising on cheap turntables, the detective work that goes into discovering new music, how reducing club capacities could be a good thing, the hot topic that is mobile phones in venues and the joy of becoming part of a festival’s furniture. It’s a longer episode than usual this week as the chat was just too good to cut short – enjoy!

Manchester-based Mr. Scruff is a producer, cartoonist and cross-genre selector who loves to play long DJ sets, and occasionally B2B sets with similarly wide-eared end excitable DJs. He has been DJing since 1984, and has been getting paid for it since 1994. His DJ sets can range from deep soul/funk/reggae/afro/jazz/latin/hip-hop to harder edged electro/house/new wave/techno/electronic, often all in the same night. A sound obsessive who likes to get in the venue early to set up and sound check, he brings his mixer, effects, vinyl (unless he is playing upside down on a windy boat), cables, a sound engineer and some boiled eggs. Sometimes he brings his VJ, Jim, or his MC, Kwasi. He usually brings socks, but occasionally forgets.
