Skratch Bastid "Get Up!" (Mixtape, 2007)


Get Up! is a great throwback mix of classic Funk and Hip-Hop from Canadian DJ and Juno-nominated producer, Skratch Bastid. Easily one of the most respected scratch and party DJs you can find around the world, Skratch won Scribble Jam in 2003, 2004 and 2007. Get Up! features tracks from Slick Rick, Rakim, The Incredible Bongo Band, Sugarhill Gang, Kurtis Blow, Jurassic 5, Maestro Fresh-Wes, Chubb Rock, Strafe, The S.O.S. Band, Eazy-E, Common, Masta Ace, Digable Planets, The J.B.'s, Run DMC, Biz Markie, The Pharcyde, Mary Jane Girls, The D.O.C., Too Short, Kenny Dope, Amy Winehouse, Sharon Jones and so much more! If you haven't attended one of the classic (Bastid) BBQs, past guests have included DJ Premier, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Just Blaze, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and more. You can also catch him live occasionally with one of my favorite Canadian MCs, Shad - they did a collaborative EP in 2013 called The Spring Up. Listen to Skratch Bastid's 2007 mix Get Up! below...
