Mr. Scruff is the recording name of Andy Carthy (born in 1972 in Macclesfield, England), a British DJ and artist, best-known for his single "Get a Move On", which was built around "Bird's Lament (In Memory of Charlie Parker)" by Moondog.

Career

He is a native of Stockport, England and studied Fine Art at the Sheffield College of Art.

His DJ name was inspired by his scruffy facial hair, as well as his trademark loose-lined drawing style. He has been DJing since 1994, at first in and around Manchester then nationwide in the United Kingdom. He is known for DJing in marathon sets (often exceeding six hours), his eclectic musical taste, his love of a "nice cup of tea" and the quirky home-produced visuals and animations that are projected on large screens during his gigs.
