Hackney Colliery Band
LYLEY & TOMSKI
On Saturday 30th April Amstel and The Big Chill Presents Scratch who this year celebrate ‘15 Years Of Hip Hop’ as one of the capital’s leading Hip Hop parties. For this monumental occasion we are truly blessed with a rare individual performance from DJ Primecuts, one the UK's most well known and respected turntablist DJ's.
DJ Primecuts first played at Scratch back in 98' and it was clear even in the early days that this DJ had special skills on the 'Wheels of Steel'. One year later and he and the other Scratch Perverts, (Tony Vegas, Mr Thing and First Rate) went on to win the world-renowned 99' World DMC Team title, in NYC.
Since then the Perverts with Primecuts, Tony Vegas and Plus One at the helm have gone from strength to strength, not just touring the world showcasing their world class turntable skills, but also releasing and producing quality music and remixes.
Our second guests should really create quite a stir when they perform live at Scratch on 30th April. The Hackney Colliery Band (releasing music on the excellent Wah Wah 45's record label) are a brass band with a difference, not your typical horn blowers, but brass musicians inspired by the sound of funk and Hip Hop. Expect to hear plenty of Hip Hop covers that should have the whole Scratch crowd singing and chanting from start to finish.
Not forgetting our host for the evening Tukka, the ever reliable resident DJ's Matt Smooth, Richy Pitch, Lyley and Tomski and the usual crews of B-boys and B-Girls
