Hailing from West Auckland, New Zealand, Scizzorhands is a world class turntablist who is always improving on skill and knowledge, bringing a variety of music in a hip-hop way.
From a young age, he was influenced by his grandparents and family who introduced him to music in the form of a drum kit at age 11.
Aged 17, Scizzorhands invested in his first set of turntables. Being heavily influenced by the likes of Mix Master Mike (Beastie Boys), DJ Rectangle and New Zealand’s own P-Money, he started down the path of becoming a turntablist DJ. Self-taught, Scizzorhands upskilled his scratching under the tutelage of New Zealand’ s 2003 DMC World Champion DJ CXL.
Putting these skills to use, Scizzorhands set his focus on being a great live performance DJ for a group called Numbers (later known as Eddie Numbers). Using t urntablist skills and a passion for all elements of hip-hop, he made a name for himself as the black sheep of the Auckland DJ scene.
After taking a break from performing, Scizzorhands made his return in the 2012 Red Bull Thre3style New Zealand Final. Despite being the underdog, he took on the competition and became NZ Red Bull Thre3style Champion, which saw him fly the flag for New Zealand at the 2012 Red Bull Thre3Style World Final in Chicago.
Eager to showcase his skills in every way, shape and form, Scizzorhands has shared the stage with DJs such as Boogie Blind, Skratch Bastid, DJ CRAZE, DJ Total Eclipse, Jazzy Jeff and Z-Trip. He has also opened for acts like Pharoahe Monch, Mobb Deep and De La Soul, and DJed for the legendary Slum Village and Guilty Simpson on their recent trips down under.
Taking out the Northern DMC Championship and 3 rd place at the Neck Of The Woods Scratch Battle in 2015 , Scizzorhands is always pushing the envelope with new routines and a style of his own.
Currently you’ll find Scizzorhands holding down radio shows on Base FM and Radio BurgerFuel, and tutoring the next generation of DJs at MAINZ (Music and Audio Institute of New Zealand). He is a huge part of New Zealand’s turntablist community and helps to push forward the art form and bring the skill set to new eyes through his unique showcasing style and party rocking.
