Artist Portrait

DJ Scratch

ttbl, *1968 US, Brooklyn
Musician / Producer of Hip-Hop/Rap
A.k.a. George Spivey

Scratch was introduced to EPMD by Joseph Simmons (Run) at the Run's House Tour after DJ K LA Boss left Erick and Parrish. Impressed by his skills, the two designated DJ Scratch as their official DJ by their second album Unfinished Business in 1989. His presence was felt with his powerful cutting and scratching techniques that are heard on various tracks. Aside from scratching, on Business As Usual, he produced the track "Funky Piano" and in 1991 worked on a remix for "I'm Mad" off the Rampage 12" single. In 1992 Scratch produced "Scratch Bring It Back, Pt. 2 (Mic Doc)" and breifly worked with DJ Magic Mike after EPMD broke up. Soon Scratch made a name for himself as a producer for Busta Rhymes and the Flipmode Squad off the Busta's Coming album in 1996. By 2003 DJ Scratch became a well distinguished producer after working with LL Cool J, Talib Kweli, DMX, The Roots, and other great hip-hop artists.
