About this Event

for the legendary Freestylers and Scratch Perverts bringing breakbeats, big beats and more to St James.

Freestylers who are known for their huge hits B-Boy stance, Ruffneck and Push up, shot to fame with their debut album 'We Rock Hard', and went on from there playing all the biggest music festivals and night clubs around the world.

Scratch Perverts have achieved true pioneer status with their influence being felt around the world. Being born out of Soho record shops in the mid 90s, the team went on to win solo and team DMC world titles, and supporting the likes of Beastie Boys and The Sex Pistols.

This is a night not to miss!

Support from the mighty DJ Four Q and DJ Dubblz who will be warming you up for the main event.

Scratch Perverts

There are very few who are truly considered pioneers. Whose influence on their chosen field is as widely felt or as far reaching. In the Scratch Perverts case there’s no doubting such pioneering status.The history and pedigree of Tony Vegas and Prime Cuts is well known. A history that revolves around Soho record shops such as Soul Jazz, Mr Bongo and Deal Real in the mid 90s. A love of hip hop but a deep love of music in general helped lay the foundations of a crew formed under the moniker we all know today. The Scratch Perverts came together with one ideal: to be the best and take on the best DJs put in front of them. And that they did. ITF titles, solo DMC titles plus two World Team DMC titles as the Scratch Perverts in 1999 and in 2000 as the Perverted Allies followed. They took on the world and won, leaving behind an unmatched legacy as DJ battlers.Their reputation as turntablists would lead the Scratch Perverts into a whirlwind career as DJs. As residents at Fabric since the beginning, they showcase a knowledge and understanding of music and how its meant to be played. Traversing all styles, the Scratch Perverts cross over genre lines with ease in a way thats pleasing on the ears but similarly entertaining on the eyes. Check out their Fabric Live 22 mix for proof. Where else would you get Foreign Beggars, DJ Shadow, Radiohead and Ed Rush & Optical to sit next to each other so seamlessly? Their skills have taken them round the world and back, got them support slots with the likes of the Beastie Boys and The Sex Pistols and seen them involved with the computer game DJ Hero. Let’s face it… you don’t get asked personally by John Peel to play his 60th birthday unless you’re pretty damn good.Like their approach to battling and music, the Scratch Perverts are about evolving and moving forward. On the agenda for 2016 and beyond is more original music from the duo. A career spent playing other peoples can sometimes lead to the neglect of your own. Not anymore. A dedicated studio space now means Prime Cuts and Tony Vegas can focus more energy on finishing and releasing material. As always the pair are embracing various styles of music to help shape their sound. Which as original hip hop heads, a genre which prides itself on outside influences, resonates perfectly with the Scratch Perverts ethos.As the guys state: “When it comes to making music, we think the aim is to release work that you feel proud of, both today and in the future. We don’t really feel a pressure to comply with any particular trends in music. We would just like to offer something that is well made and honest.”

Freestylers

After an 18 year career the Freestylers have covered a full 360 degrees in the Bass Music genre, having played all the biggest festivals, the most talked about Nightclubs around the World and even the quintessentially British music show, Top Of The Pops. Having achieved the kind of success most artists can only dream of, they’ve not rested on their laurels. Aston and Matt started working on Music together in the mid ‘90’s after discovering a mutual love of Hip-­‐Hop, Electro and Beats. They released their first two Albums ‘We Rock Hard’ and ‘Pressure Point’ on legendary Breakbeat label Freskanova. ’Raw as F**K” and ‘Adventures In Freestyle” were released on ‘Against The Grain” another Breaks Power House based out of Brighton,UK. From being voted ‘Best Band’ by Muzik Magazine in ’98, to touring with Lenny Kravitz on his American Woman Tour (he asked them himself as he was so impressed with their act), rocking a crowd of 30,000 at Glastonbury Festival ’99, performing at MTV’s Times Square Millennium Party,playing Big Day Out ’05 – it’s fair to say these Guys have had one big Adventure so far.The Freestylers began their career as an Urban Electronic Music Act, and their early Tunes ‘B-­‐Boy Stance,’’ ‘Ruffneck’ and ‘Warning’ set the marker. As their Music progressed so did their Anthems with the seminal tunes ‘Punks’, ‘Boom Blast’, ‘Fasten YourSeat-­‐Belts’,’Painkiller” and more recently ‘Cracks.’to list a few.In addition to their status as Underground Heroes, they have gained commercial success with their Global Hit ‘Push Up’ and have had their Music synched in many TV Commercials and Films ,including the hugely successful Comedies,Zoolander,Hey Dude Where’s My Car and the more recent SistersTheir ever eclectic style and renegade approach to production focuses on everything in the Bass Music Spectrum and was on show with their 5th Studio Album ‘The Coming Storm’. The current single “Spread Love” has been crossing boundaries with it’s Bassline House/Breaks hybrid sound and soon to follow up single Hypnotic Eyez and new EP Club Tracks Vol IV have been designed for maximum dancefloor devastation. The Freestylers are here to stay and are definitely rocking even harder.
