In May 2014, Mr. Scruff aka Andy Carthy released Friendly Bacteria on the ever-righteous Ninja Tune label. While Earth itself didn't exactly tremble, night spots 'round the globe shook massively. For this was more sheer excellence from the Manchester, England–based DJ and electronic-music producer, a 20-year veteran of the dance-floor wars, with a deep-rooted and sonically boundless style that has kept him in demand in a genre whose popularity has waxed and waned about a billion times since he first lifted off. Underground, pop, freaky-deaky and more, Scruff works it all, and does it with funky good humor, too (always a big plus). He doesn't visit these parts often, so grab this chance. This show is part of KCRW's series theLIFT at the Mayan, and also features resident DJs Jeremy Sole and Wiseacre.
