Invisibl Skratch Piklz release their first full length album

After 16 years apart, Qbert, Shortkut and D-Styles reform to release the Invisibl Skratch Piklz's debut album

Wheels of steel supergroup Invisibl Skratch Piklz have released their first album in nearly 30 years since the Bay Area crew formed in 1989. Founded by Qbert, DJ Apollo and Mix Master Mike, the turntablist crew grew to include A-Trak, Shortkut, Yogafrog and D-Styles. The album, entitled The 13th Floor, follows a 16 year hiatus, aside from a reunion performance from Qbert and D-Styles at 2011’s Low End Theory event, and was put together by Qbert, Shortkut and D-Styles.

The 13th Floor is out now on Alpha Pup. The trio have lined up a tour to mark the release.
