Maurice Fulton plays in a league of his very own. Starting out in 1982 in his hometown of Baltimore by the tender age of 13, Fulton dubbed himself Dr. Scratch because he was cutting more Hip Hop beats than Philip Roth's Seymour Levov gloves. Thrown off by the growing violence in the Rap Biz, Fulton was soon attracted by the Disco, House and Freestyle implosion in New York's dance scene and made trips to places like Tony Humphries' Zanzibar and Larry Levan's Paradise Garage. Shortly after that, he teamed up with the infamous Basemnt Boys production team and was involved in worldwide hits like Crystal Waters "Gypsy Woman" and records like "Love, Love, Love" by Those Guys. A man of a trillion monikers, Fulton released as Ladyvipb, Eddie & The Eggs, Syclops, Stress or Boof on labels like Tirk, Cottage, Spectrum, Transfusion, Warp and Nuphonic. Being a modern nomad and designated globetrotter, his ways led him from Baltimore to New York and via Finland (where he worked with Jimi Tenor and Nicole Willis) to Melbourne, Australia. These days he resides in Sheffield, where he records together with his wife MU breathtaking Punk music you can dance to. There is no way to argue: Fulton is on the cutting edge of today's Disco music.
