The Almighty Skratcher Group is a Canadian DJ collective that meet monthly to practice and hone the art of scratching and turntablism.
Founded in 2012 by Vancouver DJs/turntablists Paul Skratch (MunkeeMassv, No Luck Club, D.I.S.C.) and Mike Msa (Vancity Skratch Sessions), it has since expanded to add two more markets, Toronto and Winnipeg.
The SkratcherT0 chapter was initiated by DJ Dopey (MTV, Notes To Self, Turntable Monkz) and J-Tec (Turntable Monkz) last year, while the Winnipeg chapter was jumpstarted by Ill Jay 2 (USDJs) last month.
Skratcher Pegcity returns to the Graffiti Gallery on Sunday, March 15.
