Back in 1999, Mr Scruff couldn’t have known the reach and longevity of his sophomore studio effort, Keep It Unreal, in particular its foot-tapping wonders like ‘Get A Move On’. 17 years on, the Stockport native is a household name for anyone with a mind open to jazz, soul and funk DJing. His crate digging has introduced many a hip shaker to long-forgotten records, providing the soundtrack to countless revellers’ nights out.

For his 17th birthday jive at Old Granada Studios, he’s joined behind the turntables by house and disco tune-peddler Francois K, and between them the former Corrie corridors will be alive with shoulder-jutting grooves.

Refreshingly, it’s billed as a non-mobile disco, so put that phone away and enjoy.
