Those most nimble of fingers ever to molest a turntable in the name of high hip hop art, the collective better known as the Scratch Perverts (who enjoy in their number Edinburgh’s own Plus One) spread their wings here for our musical delight.
Using their trademark hip hop as a launching pad they, over 70 well-paced minutes, ride roughshod over genre mixtapes, throwing in dubstep, dancehall, quirky electro and general meaty, beaty goodness. A mix like this shows just how music sounds better when all shades and tones are thrown together and also that when the Perverts apply their jittery digits to something it ends up full of surprises.
