Scruff made a household name for himself with KEEP IT UNREAL, partially thanks to the use of the jazztastic Get a Move On in a car commercial. The album as a whole shows Scruff’s love of old jazz and hip-hop rhythms-and how the two go together hand in glove. The slide of Midnight Feast goes straight to your soul, while the neo-souul groove Honeydew will have your mouth watering. The humorous obsession with aquatic animals continues onto this album, with the whale-centric Shanty Town and the self-evident Fish

The vibes definitely triumph over any progression on these tracks, but the album's diverse moods and tempos work magic. The galloping gait and what sounds like a Louis Jordan sample power "Get a Move On," while the next track, "Midnight Feast," has the late-night feel of a Portishead single. The single "Honeydew" has a rich, soulful vocal that lifts the song into Soul II Soul territory while the cagey, metallic drum programs sound straight off a driving new wave single
Keep It Unreal is Mr. Scruff's first major release. It includes the hit single "Get a Move On", which is built upon samples of Moondog's "Bird's Lament (In Memory of Charlie Parker)" alongside vocals from T-Bone Walker's "Hypin' Woman Blues. The album ends with "Fish", a track made up of samples about marine life, which is a motif of Mr. Scruff. The original sleeve had a black background.
