I’ve been talking about this for a while, and now it’s time to tell you some details!
Saturday, November 14th at Revival Bar in Toronto will be the first show in a series entitled SKRATCH BASTID PRESENTS. This will be a quarterly night based around mixing and matching musical styles and ideas while staying conscious of the party atmosphere. A collaborative DJ experience.
The first line-up features myself, Scratch (beatboxer from The Roots) and DJ Starting From Scratch. The DJs will be going on 4 turntables and Scratch will be live on the mic with his effects unit. Some of it will be mildly rehearsed, but for the most part it will be off-the-top and in response to the vibe of the room. Visuals will be provided by mixMotion, who will add an interactive visual aesthetic to the live performance.
Scratch and I met for a rehearsal last week and I taped some of it for this site. It was the first time we ever performed together and all I can say is this night is going to be STOOPID dope. Don’t be caught with a late pass. Here’s a taste:
Stay tuned for more goodies as the date approaches! I’ll tell you where you can grab tickets and all that good stuff. Sign up for the mailing list or check back soon, y’all…..
