News:: New Skratch Bastid Kardinal Remix

There's a chance you might have gotten this impression if you've been reading my curmudgeon-esque posts for any length of time, but when I lived in Toronto, I was not "up in the club" all that often. Bars, pubs, even the odd tavern - sure, I was in my fair share of those, but attendance at the city's dance-oriented establishments was rather poor. However, were I still in T.O., there's an event coming up this weekend that might have gotten me to go against the grain.

Skratch Bastid Presents: Scratch, Skratch, Scratch goes down this weekend at Revival Bar in Toronto. The show features, of course, Skratch Bastid, who will be joined by the legendary Scratch from The Roots, and Canadian DJ vet Starting from Scratch. The three of them have been working on a number of live routines that blend the the two DJ's scratching & mixing with the beatbox wizardry of Scratch, as they re-work a number of classic beats & breaks. The Stopper. The Screamin' Jay Hawkins sample that biggie made famous. A Spoonie Gee/Run DMC mash-up. If you're a fan of classic hip hop, you'll like think it's awesome stuff, so check the videos of their practice routines below.

Before the videos though, we've got another Skratch Bastid-related treat for you: his new remix of Kardinal's hyper new hit, Clear. It's only right that Canada's hardest working DJ should do a little something with the ever-hustling Kardi, and this Planet Rock-sounding remix is really solid, so enjoy!
