Sunday Night's All Right for Scruffin'

Mr. Scruff's "Get a Move On" video (used in several ad spots in the U.K.)

Once more, the long weekend hits and not everyone can make it out to cottage country. Whether you're home with time to spare this weekend by choice or not, the stalwart folks behind the long-running and popular milk. and Footprints events series are teaming up to bring back everyone's favourite Manchester-bound, nutbar-in-a-good-way, remix-lovin' DJ and artist Mr. Scruff (both of whose media -- music and animation -- are above in the video).

"A true connoisseur of good music and a good groove," enthuses the Footprints promo material. "Expect a musically diverse set including jazz, funk, soul, hip hop, house, Latin,
African, reggae, ska, broken beat and much much more!"

"Herr" Gani and the milk. crew brought the Scruffy one, a Web radio host and prominent name on the Ninja Tune roster, a few years back, and although he's kept the connection, contributing a mix to the popular site, it's high time he returned to show off his own brand of seemingly simple lines that take listeners and viewers on a quirky yet danceable journey they often don't expect. Go listen to dude's own "pie space" mix if you don't believe me.

Scruff's got the one of two rooms to himself all night at Revival, with assists on visuals from DJ General Eclectic, while Lybido, also of Footprints, hosts. On the other dancefloor, milk's residents Felix and Gani alongside Footprinters Jason Palma and Stuart hold down the all-night throwdown. Keep it unreal! Try this musical casserole, it's delish.
