PLAY is honored to announce that DJ Scratch will be doing an exclusive show in Hong Kong on Saturday, 30th July.

Known globally for showcasing his DJ in Clubs and stadiums for over two Decades. He is now widely acknowledged by the Legends before him as one of their own.

DJ Scratch has been called upon to DJ on tour for the likes of Jay-Z, Diddy and Q-Tip. His past has an exceptional history, which goes back to 1988 where he won the New Music Seminar Battle for World Supremacy DJ Championship and he joined the RUN DMC “Run’s House World Tour”. During the tour, he was instantly converted from a raw battle DJ to an all round performer. When the tour ended, JMJ of RUN DMC introduced DJ Scratch to the rap group EPMD. As soon as they witnessed the young phenomenon, they hired him on the spot.

Over the years, Scratch captured another DJ World Title by entering and winning Season One of the first ever DJ Reality Show, “Master Of the Mix” in 2010. DJ Scratch also became the first recipient of the Global Spin Awards “Turntablist Of The Year Award”, which he won for the following two years after.

Scratch has residencies on aired TV shows which are shown nationally such as Fox 5’s ”Uptown Comedy Club ”, “Hip Hop Hold ‘Em” and B.E.T.’s “Rap City, the Basement”. He also has film credits which include “Juice”, “The Original 50 Cent” and “Fly By Night”, just to name a few.

DJ Scratch produced hits with big names such as Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J and with 50 Cent. Scratch's accolades include the 3 Grammy nominations and over 40 Gold and Platinum Awards to his credit which makes DJ Scratch responsible for the sale of over 30 million albums to date. He has created an online Music Television Network called “ScratchVision” to dedicate the history of his live performances over the years. They include performances with Grandmaster Flash, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Premier, DJ Cash Money and many more legendary names.

Please note that valid photo i.d will be required at the entrance. We also have a strict, no exceptions policy of no shorts, beach wear, sports wear or flip flops.

The management reserves the right to refuse entry at its sole discretion.
