Dj Mixes

Skratch Bastid & The Gaff “Soul Sisters, Stand Up!”



Anytime the homie Skratch Bastid drops a mixtape all the DJ’s sweat a little because they know the shit is gonna be dope and hard to top! I mean, all real DJ’s have their own voice, their own style and approach but let’s just say I wouldn’t want to attack a theme right after he’s had a go at it… I wouldn’t have a DJ game of horse with Skratch even if he’s the nicest guy.

So for his new project he teamed up with felow Canadian The Gaff to deliver what they define as a “100% Female Funk/Soul/R&B/Breaks. 2 DJs. 2 years in the making. Featuring the sounds of soulful ladies from the mid-60s & mid-70s – a snapshot of love, pain, happiness, oppression, strength, struggle and more from an era where records were the primary outlet for these voices.”

“This is probably the mixtape that I’ve worked the longest on, ever. Gaff and I spent countless hours figuring out just how to give you the goods, and here it is. Recommended to be bumped on a nice system with bass, but that goes without saying. Why are you satisfied with playing your music off them laptop speakers anyway?”

An essential piece of music history. Sit down and take notes.
