An electronic music legend, Manchester based producer, DJ and artist Mr. Scruff has been producing dancefloor classics for over 25 years. Cutting his teeth at DJing in the early 90s, his eclectic music taste accompanied by his own visuals and animations earned him a loyal following over the years. 

In 1995 he released his first release, “Hocus Pocus” on Manchester based label Robs Records before a few years later making his debut on Ninja Tune with his first full length album release. Since then, he’s had a steady flow of releases, dipping in and out from electro, trip-hop, electronica, nu jazz with elements of soul. More recently, his collaboration with OneDa, Warriors Daughter is an old school breaks flex. 

We’re thrilled to be welcoming him to Manchester’s Soup Kitchen to share his decades long knowledge with us and for a deep dive into his creative process.

For those new to CDR Sessions, the event centres on an in-depth, production focussed interview with the guest artist, exploring their career and creative process. Our events are for all music lovers, producers and non-producers alike. The talk is flanked by ‘OpenCDR’ -  a DJ set of audience music submissions. This is a chance for music makers to:

  • Hear your own music on an amazing club sound system
  • Artists of all experience levels welcome 
  • No restrictions - all genres & styles welcome
