DJ Chicken Skratch

"What is a chicken if he can't skratch?" 

Get to know Phil... aka DJ Chicken Skratch...

About me: I fell in love with the idea of DJing as a kid. Ever since I begun, I could not stop! From 1994 to 2001, my teenage years focused on high school dances and birthday parties; I was able to do this by working with various DJ "crews," predominantly Rhythm In Motion, a prestigious DJ company from San Francisco. By the time I entered the night club scene in 2001, I found myself addicted to rocking parties. I have had very few weekends off since then. Since '01, my DJ career has averaged about 2-3 gigs per week. From 2002-2006, I also co-produced a local TV show on Hip-Hop called "Distortion 2 Static." Duties involved booking artists for interviews and guest appearances, organizing emcee battles, DJ battles and college tours, promoting nightlife club events, social media management, PR, sponsorships and some light camera work and sound engineering. I brought many fellow DJs onto the show because I grew up in a strong community of DJs. I continue to find relevancy by playing at weekly night clubs. When I get booked for private events, I do my best to cater, musically, and act professionally. I look forward to being a part of your event! Peace! -Phil

"DJ Chicken Skratch, a Bay Area native, has made his name by playing venues big and small. From festivals to clubs of all sizes he kicks up the volume with a unique mix of hip hop, 70s funk/breaks, 80s Electro Funk and current hits. His unique style and talent has provided him the opportunity to spin for Estelle, Bored Stiff, Souls of Mischief, People Under the Stairs, Medusa, The Cataracs, The Pack, Smif-N-Wessen, and others. You can hear him on Tuesdays at Skylark Bar, a monthly DJ jam session at The Rockit Room and pumping up the crowds at Giants games. Don’t miss his set this week at NightLife."
