AUDO – FUNK, SOUL, HIP HOP: PITCH & SCRATCH – Together (Legere Recordings)


Pitch & Scratch new LP “Together”


Pitch & Scratch take the next step and introduce vocalists and lyricists who share a similar, funky and peaceful vision to the family? This is where Wayne Martin comes in. Born in New Orleans and now living in Europe, this respected blues singer came up with the very personal, moving “Papa Never Was A Genius”, which Mzuzu and Suro turned into an uplifting latin-soul groover. Speaking of uplifting spirits: With the voice of Brazilian singer Leila Pantel “Maculele” and “Vem Meu Bem” give the album a energetic summer vibe. Seanie T., the rapper from South East London is talking serious business. “Pitch Me And Scratch Me” is a piece of true, down to earth and gritty UK hiphop. Plus there can only be one Alex Prince, well-known in the German urban scene, to top this funky line-up of vocalists. “Funk Is Ruling in My Head” has the message in the title and is taking Alex Prince back to the roots of funk. We are going to release this as the first single.

But what would the funk be without the horns and the percussion. “Together” is a big shout-out to the power of brass. Here we have the Diazpora Horns, the Boxhorns (of Jan Delay & Disko No.1) and Pitch & Scratch’s homies of the Superbad Horns. Put this in line with the super tight percussion of Lack of Afro in “Papa Never Was A Genius” and we have something really special going on.

Towards the end of the album Pitch & Scratch join the “Road To Saturn” while they “Roll’n Rock”. Here we have it all “Together”: Deep, serious clubby vibes, from the people for the people, no posing just the groove next to the adrenalin of a sweating Northern Soul dancefloor packed with a crowd which is completely in it for the music. That’s what we call “Together”!

With more than 1000 DJ-sets on the agenda since his introduction to the scene in 1999 Mzuzu from Hamburg/Germany is one of the hardest working faces in the business, simply becaus he does not only DJ but is a crafted multi-instrumentalist as well as a studied music scientist. Starting with cello, he moved on to the guitar and the bass and founded Superbad! In 2004. The band supported legends like Lyn Collins and Blowfly, at the same time he perfected his composition and musician skills and recorded with local artists, from independent to big names like Hamburg legend Carsten Bohn, with whom he played in the Urban Session/Organic Band, Samy Deluxe, Jan Delay
and Udo Lindenberg. In 2009 he introduced his new band K & The Offbeats and released the album „Hamburg Hustle“ as the producer and arranger in Pitch & Scratch.

DJ Suro

As the man behind the decks and mastermind of the beats DJ Suro from Hamburg/Germany is a well-respected face in the German HipHop scene. He is not only a resident at Fusion, certainly one of the most advanced festivals in Germany, but regularly plays parties like Trust In Wax, Beat Me Up or Soulfood all aorund Germany. Suro played with nearly everybody from Jan Delay to Talib Kweil and Marva Whitney, from Dilated Peoples to Grandmaster Flash and Biz Markie. He has been invited to host DJ-workshops in Germany and Senegal, played in cutting-edge, indpendent local film productions and is a regular guest in the German funk live scene with Superbad! and Brixton Boogie. As a producer and arranger in Pitch & Scratch he released „Hamburg Hustle“ in 2009.
