Skratch Bastid Presents: announcing THUGLI (Drastik & Tom Wrecks) Oct 5th + pics from last month: Maseo
The next Skratch Bastid Presents will feature two of my longtime DJ homies and individuals I consider to be of extraordinary quality. Friday October 5th at Revival (783 College St) in Toronto will feature former DMC Canadian champion DJ Drastik and producer/DJ extraordinaire Tom Wrecks performing together under their new production duo moniker: THUGLI.
Both of these guys have been doing their thing for a minute. Drastik and I competed together numerous times in Canadian DJ battles over the years (with me typically on the losing end) and can put together great mixtapes and sets coming from a wide range of musical styles. Tom Wrecks competed on the battle circuit as well, but became more known for his excellent production work and ability to wear fashionable hats in an admirable way. He also helps run a great monthly night called ITZSOWEEZEE, which has it’s own blog for you to KEEP UP. Together, I think they make a great group and today, yes TODAY, they dropped a mix showcasing some of their own production work and a range of the sounds you can expect to hear from a THUGLI set. Peep “Take Off” below, and come check us out on 4 turntables on October 5th! Flyer soon come.
Last month, we had MASEO from De La Soul come through and rock for an INCREDIBLE night of new music, classics, and a Native Tongues history lesson. Here’s some pics, courtesy of Bilal Tariq.
Bonus: Here’s DJ Drastik’s set he prepared for the 2010 Red Bull Thre3Style World Finals.
