Super Scratch Sunday Leeds Edition
Hyde Park Book Club, Leeds
Sunday 4th March 2018
Super Scratch Sunday comes to Leeds. Come and join Scratch DJ's from all over the UK for a day dedicated to all things turntablism. This is an all day event and you are encouraged to have a go yourself with some of the best scratch DJ's from around the country and hosted by The Leeds Scratch Collective.
Super Scratch Sunday started life in London as a friendly, semi-regular scratch session, mostly attended by members of the Digital Vertigo forum, and held in peoples houses.
As the sessions became more organised and more people started attending, SSS needed bigger locations and so DJ Dubbadutch and Rockwell's studio in Rye became a regular spot because of its awesome soundsystem and tea-making facilities.... As momentum picked up it started to move further afield and headed to Bristol where it featured battles and performances in pubs and shops, making the whole thing more public.
The SSS crew started attending the yearly Community Skratch BBQ and so the session grew even more. Now SSS comes to Leeds linking crews of the South with the North.
There will be showcases from award winning champion DJ's including
DJ Rasp is a true party rocker behind a set of decks, he made a name for himself on the battle scene winning 6 British DJ Titles (DMC and IDA champion). You can find Rasp captivating crowds in clubs and events worldwide with a healthy balance of musical selection, showmanship and technical skills.
A regular to Super Scratch Sunday Dubbadutch comes back to Leeds after the hugely successful Scratchblast tour. He won the 2016 UK IDA championship and last year came runner up in the Portablist Lounge competition.
Another regular on the Super Scratch Sunday scene and hailing from Bristol Symatic is a founding member of Cut and Paste records famed for creating some of the best scratch vinyl's on the market.
We're very pleased to add this awesome turntablist to the bill. El Statiko is the 2015 IDA World Runner Up (technical category) and the 2015/16 UK IDA Champion
