DIRTY ROCKING BASS HEAVY ELECTRO-TECH BY DJ SKRUFFF
WHO IS JONTY SKRUFFF ?
We have been getting messages asking who he is… so we thought it’s time to feature him.
Check out his latest DJ Mix! (Click line below)
We’ll have to point though that you have to experience him in a club situation. The way the bass frequencies work on your brain and stomach. MP3 format hardly gets across what it feels like in the clubs. But we trust your imagination…close your eyes…..and you’ll know….we are loving this mix….
This is how Jonty is described in his bio:
Jonty plays dirty rocking, bass-heavy electro-tech, mixing together electro, techno, hip hop and rock into a seamless stew of high-energy alternative, cutting edge dance music.
4 years after launching his DJ career at ultra-fashionable London club Golf Sale (aka Boombox) Jonty Skrufff has firmly established himself on the international alternative electro circuit, headlining underground clubs, festivals and superclubs in twenty-one countries so far.
Picking up prestige repeat bookings everywhere from Pacha Ibiza and Judgement Sunday (Ibiza), to Serbia’s Exit Festival and Czech Republic’s Summer Of Love festival, he’s also toured Brazil four times
(spinning regularly at D-Edge, Vegas and mad tranny institution A Loca) as well as enjoying a high profile tour of China last Christmas.
The 9 gig trip included performances in front of 2,000 revellers at both G Plus superclubs (in Shanghai and Hangzhou) plus an exclusive set before 6,000 Chinese people in Beijing on New Years Eve. The Coca
Cola backed party was Beijing’s first ever official (Western) New Year’s Eve outdoor event and Jonty was the only non-Chinese performer at the high profile event.
Elsewhere, he’s played Japan (Club Ageha), Lithuania, Bahrain, Israel, Ukraine, Hong Kong, Thailand, France, Spain, Holland, Norway, Dubai, Czech Republic and the Balkans (Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia) though still plays most frequently in London and Berlin (where he now mainly bases himself when not travelling).
In Berlin, he’s a regular guest at acclaimed trash, rock-electro queercore party Neon Raiders and has also headlined Berlin’s mighty Tresor a number of times after being invited to DJ at the legendary club’s grand re-opening in May 2007.
Spinning alongside fellow Skrufff DJ Fidelity Kastrow, the duo played a joint seven-hour set in the club’s experimental room and made such an impression that Tresor invited them back immediately (to play the very next night)
“At the opening night parties back In May, Batterieraum fans didn’t know what hit them when the dirty rocking bass heavy electro-tech spins by UK’s Jonty Skrufff met the sex-soaked electro style of
Berlin’s Fidelity Kastrow,” said Tresor in their newsletter following the gigs, “These were sparks to remember.”
Back in London, he plays regularly at the capital’s coolest cutting edge clubs, with upcoming gigs include Gutter Slut, Calling All Tribes and Naked Zoo @ Egg (plus an imminent return to Pacha London).
As well as DJing, he also continues to produce and present the Skrufff Show on Ministry Of Sound Radio, as well as publishing his hugely acclaimed weekly sex-drugs-clubs & politics e-zine Skrufff-E
(available at http://www.skrufff.com http://www.skrufff.com).
He’s also now actively involved in making music, co-producing and remixing Fidelity Kastrow’s upcoming single 21st Century Girl and Trainwreck with Radio 1 star Judge Jules, with more productions and releases to follow imminently.

“Skrufff (that’s 3 F’s people) has been playing for me since my first ever gig at a small intimate bar in East London many moons ago and he has been a firm favourite ever since. From The Cross to The Key and
now Pacha and 4 years later he’s still destroying the dancefloor week in week out! Legend… although he could do with a haircut!”
James Clent, Pacha London
“Incredible, fantastic, amazing… I don’t know how to express the energy of Jonty Skrufff’s DJ set. His rocking electro-disco-tech simply rocks!!!! and makes people dance all night. They all did in Roxy and O2 club in Prague, Czech Republic. We want Jonty back soon!”
Michal Walterstein, Roxy Prague PR Director, Czech Republic,
“You did an awesome job at Volar. Thanks for putting your heart into it.”
Jaime Ho, Promoter, Club Volar, Hong Kong
“Thank you! It was a great party! We really enjoyed your dirty punking rocking electro set and we also received only positive feedback from the crowd! Let’s Go Punk’s absinthe party has now changed into a tour
where we take the concept forwards. We’re going to meet again soon!”
Gregor Zavcer, Supreme FM and Absinthe Supreme.
“You and Fidelity Kastrow were just great, everybody’s still talking about it. Your set moved even the stones in the fortress. Nothing’s gonna’ be the same again in this city.”

“Jonty’s started a revolution in our town. People here never heard a set like the one he played- everybody’s jumping around, dancing, and his energy is spreading around and going up. We want more definitely.”
