October is here! Green leaves are changing colors and the mercury is dropping, but we have some good Bastid news for you guys. September was inspiring. I got to do the East Coast Collegiate tour with Thunderheist; those kids didn’t know what hit ‘em. I also played an amazing show for the Manifesto Festival’s afterparty with Hi-Tek, Talib Kweli, Jeru the Damaja, and 9th Wonder who were all on stage going nuts to my set (i will be posting some video soon). September 28 marked my return to Montreal at the Blue Dog Motel. I’ve got some really great shows all over Ontario and the Canadian east coast so come peep me if I’m in your area!

Also, keep your eyes and ears peeled for Skratch Bastid Presents at Revival Bar on November 14. It’s a new quarterly event that will focus on collaborations with other DJs, producers, and musicians from around the country and internationally. The first installment will feature myself alongside my colleague and Toronto legend DJ Starting From Scratch, world-famous beatboxer Scratch from The Roots, and an interactive visual surprise by our homies at MixMotion.
Don’t forget to hit up skratchbastid.com on the regular for the latest news, mixes, videos, interviews, and other daily goods. September saw a two-part mix with Arcee and Kaewonder from The Real Frequency radio show, a tribute to Roc Raida as part of the “My Favorite Things” section, a routine I did for my homies at Tiger Distribution, and an interview with Lookout Presents, among other things.
