Tony Vegas, Prime Cuts and Plus One are the Scratch Perverts - a name that has become synonymous with HipHop and battle DJing ever since their formation in 1996. Their reputation as one of the world's most progressive DJ collectives is unparalleled. Having won all there is to offer in the competition circuit, the Perverts are ready to enter the next stage of their development as recording artists. But as DJs who have contributed countless techniques and pioneered such radical innovations developing the musical language of the turntable, what the Perverts define as HipHop is a long way off what people would expect. The ideals created by the likes of Kool Herc and Afrika Bambaataa developed through HipHop's formative years, originality, dynamism and innovation are all principles that the Perverts have applied to their DJing art and now to their music. Although they may have retired from battling indefinitely, the Perverts have lost none of their supercharged competitive spirit. These days, instead of spending hours building battle routines to take each other out, the Perverts are crafting beats to do exactly the same thing! The creative energy and enthusiasm that the Perverts exude is quite something, through all their schizophrenic influences and lofty ideals you get the feeling that they will harness and channel their combined creativity into something very special.
