Disco Scratch Radio MC Gels In Interview


Out of the Bronx, New York, aged only 18 YEARS OLD!  My melon was twisted when I first heard some of this cats material on Soundcloud… I thought he must be in his 30s at least because of the flow, delivery & production of his music.  Gels is an unassuming self made rapper, who leans on the early 90s golden era of Hip Hop for his musical influence.

Along with production from the likes of MPADrums among others, Gels spits lovely flows over real ,nice productions.  Think he’s only on the slow tip? Nope, he can rhyme at pace too, he’s a real versatile MC and I thought it only right to give him some props on Disco Scratch Radio.

Hearing music like this just makes an Ageing B Boy like me very happy, it makes me know that the torch has been passed to someone who will keep it lit…

Anyway, the show was meant to be 2 hours but my internet connection kept dropping out & I didn’t realise that it had stopped recording from the first dropout, so I only have the interview for this show, but it’s a great listen for those that don’t know him.

He has a new LP entitled “Wandering Souls” which is now available on his Bandcamp page, you can also listen to him on Soundcloud and get at him on Twitter & Instagram… he also has a Youtube channel.

Here’s a quick link for you to peep his stuff, then cop the whole interview at the bottom either download or stream… oh, you can hit him, up on Facebook too.  If you do get a message to him or cop his LP, tell him Waxer linked ya! See yas next week…

Disco Scratch Radio April 21.04.2016


Dry spell? Bastard drought more like! So I dusted off the mic in the POV and did the first live Disco Scratch show since Christmas last year!  What can I say? Too much work not enough play I’m afraid, but anyway… So usual format tonight, some new tracks starting off with the dopest UK tune out there, in fact scratch that, THE BEST TUNE OUT THERE RIGHT NOW FULL STOP! DJ Supreme & Son Of Noise with RIP, then getting into some more new flavour, with a few oldies chucked in for good measure.

The Video to the Supreme track has 2 fellers involved in it that I’ve known for a good few years now, Pritt Kalsi & Andy Higgs, they did a quality job on this & I salute them!!!  Of course bigup to all crew that were involved… this track has been on repeat since it appeared on youtube!

Views at 10… the main story this past couple of weeks has been the allegations made against Bambaataa… I give my opinions here.  Chatroom selection, 5 to 11 swear and… we’re done.

See you next week… tracklist in the comments…

Ageing B Boys Unite! March 2016 ft DJ Format


So here’s the download in case you missed it last night, honestly, if you have any idea about attention to detail you’ll be loving this, as drunk as a fucking monkey on ABU niceness!  Dope busy chatroom with lots of old and some new faces, Format is a very interesting bloke & extremely humble, I’ve known of him for years & had some contact over the years but honestly not ever sat down with him & chewed the fat, so Repo did that for me!

If you LOVE Hip Hop & the old school and want to hear the opinions of someone who truly understands & knows what he’s talking about, get your shell likes round this show… props to all crew who listened in live…


Ageing B Boys Unite! March 2016 podcast with DJ Format


Tomorrow night at 9PM in the usual spot, the Disco Scratch Radio page, poppin’ the top of the Bronx-0-meter will be Repo136 with special guest DF Format… Format needs to introduction to the initiated, but if you are new to the show, or to Hip Hop, or the internet (naturally instead of typing “tits” the first time you experience Google, you’ll type Disco Scratch Radio), Format is a producer/DJ who has an impressive back catalogue of Hip Hop and funky shizzle, peep his past here:


Well I’ll be getting ready in the POV for the event tomorrow and doing a little 1 hour early bird mix at 8pm for anyone that fancies just sticking me on in the background.

Really looking forward to this and hope you are too!

So it’s 2016 is it?

Fashionably late to the party here I am posting about new years… well I suppose that’s how it is these days for me… right now I’m having a hot flush! One of those things your mum used to have in the 70s.  So I’m at work A LOT… but hopefully this year I’ll be taking on an apprentice & a few blokes to do the daily grind so I can kick back & bit & do more that I enjoy, like the radio!

It won’t happen overnight, it’ll take time… so for now I’ll be doing radio when I can, I LOVE live radio, interaction with all crew…but I gotta do the work & family stuff first… so, give me a few months & hopefully I’ll be back weekly… I have a lot of audio that I have recorded over the years that I think needs to be aired so I’ll be uploading things to Disco Scratch to keep you entertained… who knows, I might get on air every now & again!

I’m in the process of just running a few recordings through some mastering software & will be uploading soon so hopefully you’ll be getting these in your iTunes/RSS feeds…

In the meantime I have been enjoying this all week, so speak to you all soon, salute!

Disco Scratch Radio Christmas Special 2015


Stoke up that fire, get that brandy class topped up, sink down into that comfy chair & let me lick your ears with 2 hours of Christmas…

Who am I kidding? It’s the usual shite dressed up as a Christmas show!  Hope all you buggers have a happy crimbo & see you in 2016!  There’s rumours the missus might do a show on Christmas day, we’ll see… Peash!

Disco Scratch Radio – Polystylism Show/Digging4Victory 12.11.2015


The second Thursday of every Month I do the P{olystylism show which is a takeover… this is also available on the main Polystylism site


I first met Maf around 1989 in Pompey when things were really kicking off for Hip Hop down there… actually the story was this… I was in a record shop & Maf & his then flatmate (DJ Panoramix) walk in… I was wearing a technics necklace with the standard garms of the day, pin rolled chipies, hat too high on my head etc haha, so we started talking & ended up doing radio together amongst a lot of other things!

So, Maf was always the record nerd & mix scientist… he was great at putting records together & did a load of mixes that I have on tape… I’ll upload them over the coming months… anyway, so he never named his mixes, but I did just for my own reference & this is what the mixes have become… I originally posted this mix back in 2009 but it was nice to have a chatroom with it & talk about it in the show.  Also, the original upload was only half the mix, so this is the full version…


After the Polystylism show, my man LG does an hour with the Digging4Victory show which you can listen to on his Digging4Victory Mixcloud page when the lazy git uploads it… see you in the chat next week! **UPDATE** you can now stream this from the embedded link below…

Disco Scratch Radio 29.10.2015


What happened to ABU! tonight I hear you cry… well, real life sheeeit got in the way for old Squadron Leader 136, basically his internet was bolloxed… so, after not being on air for some 6 or so weeks, Reeps couldn’t make it so I stepped in… a decent amount of people in the chat & an exceptional 5 to 11 swear!

Stay spooked B Ghouls…

Disco Scratch Radio 29.10.2015 by Discoscratch on Mixcloud

Missed us? We missed you…

Life… a shuffled deck of cards… we play the best hand we can with what we get dealt… sometimes we walk out the casino with enough to make sure kith & kin are all OK… sometimes we walk out with less than sweet FA…

Last couple months I’ve been on the grind… but that doesn’t mean I don’t think about what I have done a lot… sometimes I lose myself… I get so absorbed in just turning the gears of the grind (sometimes for weeks) that I almost don’t recognise myself… then a couple of days off, a reset, a re-evaluation of what is what comes onto me… it’s never enough (I need 2 weeks), but at some point in the coming years I’ll get the balance right…

I’ll employ the right blokes, get the right admin staff in place & be the father/husband/cut maniac I NEED TO BE…. until that time just bear with me… I am passionate about the musical heritage I represent… I hope my past can show you that… I am passionate about my future… but only I can show you that… bear with me people, Disco Scratch will return in all it’s glory… keep on keepin’ on…
