WOMADelaide Hype: Skratch Bastid

skratch-bastid-press-shot-web-resHaving very fond memories of the likes of Dino Moran and Giles Peterson gracing the Adelaide Parklands and showing some wax skills, it’s with great interest we see Skratch Bastid on the bill this year.

His bio reads: Over the past 15 years, Canada’s own Skratch Bastid has been spreading his skills and name around the world, one sweaty crowd at a time. What first started at DJ competitions like DMC, ITF, and Scribble Jam where he became a certified entertainer and show favorite has now affected the four corners of the globe, establishing him as a “DJ’s DJ” and a true master of the craft recognized by the best in the game.

At the rate of over 150 shows a year over the last decade, his reputation as one of the hardest working DJs in the world comes as no surprise. Increasingly heralded for his comfort and versatility in different styles – hip hop, funk, disco, club, rock and just about anything that makes people dance- the Bastid has rocked dance floors in Asia, Europe, Down Under and everywhere in between. With an incomparable hold in his country where he has become a staple of Canadian DJ history, he now celebrates his culture and community in his home base of Toronto and throughout Canada with the annual Bastid’s BBQ held every summer

Having seen his Bowie homage and this guy is a true genus on the tables. A must see at WOMAdelaide 2017.
