The turntablist trio kick off a spankin’ new mix series with ‘Watch the Ride’, an upfront blend of hip-hop, rap, rock, grime, dubstep, and punishing drum ‘n bass.
Each of the Scratch Perverts - Prime Cuts, Tony Vegas and Plus One – is a megawatt DJ in his own right with a pile of mixing championship trophies in his closet, but together they’ve made even more of a mark: Their in-your-face trademark sound is a regular part of Fabric's Friday night rotation, a fact showcased on heady last mix effort ‘FabricLive 22’ in Summer 2005.
The Perverts' latest release ‘Watch The Ride’ features loads of original material, including custom-made bookends, a couple new rap tracks featuring Roots Manuva (‘Freaks’) and Dynamite MC (‘Drop’), as well as the DMX-sampling DnB stormer ‘Fuck What You Heard’. The rest of the tracklist reads like your iTunes library on random: that new Pharaohe Monch joint; ‘Push’, an old Chemical Brothers b-side; ‘Rize Up’, a bit of dubstep from Skream and Loefah; Ed Banger’s SebastiAn and his ‘Ross Ross Ross’; a touch of grime via Wiley and Akala feat. Skinnyman; all finished off with some DnB destruction courtesy of Die & Clipz and DJ Zinc. Yet in the end, Scratch Perverts will probably make more sense of it all then your shuffle feature could ever dream of.
