Ruckus Roboticus - Playing With Scratches : : .

Artist: Ruckus Roboticus
Title: Playing With Scratches
Released: Jan. 2008
Format: Unmixed Audio CD
Label: Grease
Genre: Funk, Broken Beats, Downtempo


Born from the industrial powers of Dayton, Ohio, Ruckus Roboticus has risen to unleash his fury of funk, hip-hop and mischief. Part turntable, half drum machine, all sex machine; the robotic wonder has continually electrified listeners with his colorful and imaginative world of sound.

The long-awaited, debut album Playing With Scratches is a creative and complex mixture of beats, scratching, and story-telling. In the vein of Dj Shadow, Cut Chemist, Ursula 1000, with samples from the Muppets Show, children's records, and other oddbal sources.

Created entirely from found sounds, this semi-autobiographical tale playfully chronicles the childhood of Ruckus Roboticus; from "The Birth of Ruckus", to his discovery of scratching on his See-N-Say toy ("Baby's First Scratch"), to his declaration of what he wants to be when he grows up ("When I Grow Up"). Things take a turn for the worse when his parents find out about the shenanigans taking place in the playroom, and command him to "Never Play With Scratches". In the end, Ruckus must "Face the Music", and decide whether to give-in to the pressures of the grown up world, or reject the grown up establishment by continuing to "Play With Scratches".

Following in the long tradition of experimental and engaging music, "Playing with Scratches" is genre-less, blending story and sound with unprecedented liveliness. Critics cheer, dancers sweat, and legends applaud. The little-bot has grown up, and is stomping through the streets. It's only a matter of time until the city dwellers realize this is the dawning of the Age of Roboticus.
