Pitch & Scratch – Together

Pitch & Scratch - Together Banner


When Pitch & Scratch came up with their “Hamburg Hustle” in 2009 it was a revelation. These guys studied the Seventies school of funk and soul, were digging deep in disco roots and knew what a good hiphop beat was all about. Well, having the same  musical background, I had to dig this album and I it was no wonder that I really enjoyed it.

On the album featured was “Everybody Move” with its irresistible party vibe and an ultra-charming video clip:

Now in 2012 and Pitch & Scratch released  their second album called “Together”. The method of “Together” is simple but effective: After the release of “Hamburg Hustle” Pitch & Scratch were out and about getting props for their instrumental arrangements. But why not take the next step and introduce vocalists and lyricists who share a similar, funky and peaceful vision to the family?

As a result Pitch & Scratch teamed up with artists like , the New Orleans born blues singer Wayne Martin, Brazilian singer Leila Pantel or  the London based rapper Seanie T. They also worked together with Alex Prince to top this funky line-up of vocalists on the track  “Funk Is Ruling in My Head”, which  has the message in the title and is taking Alex Prince back to the roots of funk.

But what would the funk be without the horns and the percussion. “Together” is a big shout-out to the power of brass by working together with  the Boxhorns of Jan Delay & Disko No.1. Put this in line with the super tight percussion of Lack of Afro in “Popa Never Was A Genius” and we have something really special going on.

Here we have it all “Together”: Deep, serious clubby vibes, from the people for the people, no posing just the groove next to the adrenalin of a sweating Northern Soul dancefloor packed with a crowd which is completely in it for the music. That’s what I call “Together”!


Keep the funk alive and fuy this album @ Juno!!!
