TUNE Mr Scruff - Render Me
‘Render Me’ - the first single from the new album, 'Friendly Bacteria'. Mr. Scruff is back with his first new album since 2008's 'Ninja Tuna'. 'Friendly Bacteria' drops on 19th May 2014, a couple of weeks ahead of a very special "Mr. Scruff & Friends" album launch party at Roundhouse, London on Saturday 31st May. Reinvigorated by his hiatus from the studio, 'Friendly Bacteria' finds the highly respected cratedigger, DJ and producer in reflective mood… in his own pithy words the album is “tougher, sparser, less samples, more bass. More vocals and
collaborations and shorter tunes.” '
Render Me' is exemplary of this vibe - a stealthy, soulful groove blessed with the vocals of Denis Jones whom Scruff first stumbled upon when Jones supported Amp Fiddler in Liverpool five or so years ago. The pair often meet to jam and consequently the celebrated Manchester based singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist features heavily on the new record
