German turntablism label Thai Dust Black journeys deep into Finland for its latest discovery, the scratch addicted beat wrangler known as Dogher-Man. Based in the faraway town of Kokemäki (population 7,923) a young Dogher-Man entertained himself by incessantly scratching on his mother’s unwitting record player. All grown up and funneling his obsession into years of ‘intense turntablism study,’ Dogher-Man has revealed his Certainly debut mini-album through Thai Dust. Heavy tracks of hip hop beats and high-speed scratch deployment of clever and in-your-face sample drops make for a charged rhythmic stew that aims to ‘get this party started!’ F-F-F-fressshhh ….
