Featured Base DJ – Scizzorhands
Internationally renowned DJ Scizzorhands has always been part of the Base fam but we have finally gone and made it official and got him on a show. You can all listen to Sciz do what he does best every Saturday during Peace Of Dreams along with DJ Pause. We’ve just got the heads up that Scizzorhands will be opening for Pharoahe Monch on April 11th at The Studio – a great chance for all you heads to see the Redbull Thre3style Champ at his dopest. We had a chat with him in the lead up to that show to get the low down on the DJ’s favourite tunes, dream gigs, surprise talents and what he does when he’s (very rarely) not scratching….
