Known worldwide, Mr Thing is a name synonymous with Hip-Hop, funk and
turntablist culture that always brings smiles and astonishment to the faces of
fans and promoters alike through his genius performances of impeccable skill.
Since first touching the tables in 1987, he has been non-stop perfecting his art
(winning the 1999 DMC World Team Championships with the Scratch
Perverts and then by himself in 2000) he is understandably now recognised as
one of the worlds best. Touring the globe with an understanding of music that
is second to none, he always creates flawless and exciting sets mixing some of
the rarest with some of the best-loved records ever heard with an effortless
ease honed after years dedicated to the art.
Uniting with veteran producer and hip hop royalty DJ Premier, BBE Music
enlisted Mr Thing to compile the third installment of their The Kings of Hip-
Hop series. By that time, he had obtained a residency at the world-famous
London Fabric nightclub and had built a strong, collaborative relationship
with London MC Yungun. The two released the Grown Man Business LP on
Silent Soundz. Recording for BBE, Mr. Thing once again used his trained ear
for samples and breaks to compile the mix album and double-CD, Strange
Breaks, again signed to the incredible BBE Records.
