On its U.S. debut, Skratch Comando is out to prove that Spanish men are no slouches in the DJ department. Hailing from Lloret der Mar, Spain, DJ Tillo, DJ Marc, and DJ None mix, scratch, and blend everything into one feisty whole. "DJ's Get the Fuck Up" serves as a perfect example of how the trio tricks and flips well-known breaks and verses—ultimately, making them their own. In addition to incorporating classic U.S. rap songs into the mix, the trio enlists some of Spain's top rap acts, including MCs Zemo, Eddy Drame & Male, and Tremendo Menda, who all lend their vocals to the stellar set. In a smart move, each DJ takes time to introduce himself. For his part, DJ Marc showcases his timing and dexterity in front of a live audience on "Intro DJ Marc Live." The increasing popularity of turntablism—witness the X-Ecutioners' latest release and the Scratch documentary—should bode well for the trio. For more information, log on to bombhiphop.com.—RH
