Skratch Bastid (Canada)


Think Twice and the manor present 

SKRATCH BASTID (CANADA)


Having rocked the bar many times, Skratch Bastid is now ready to raise it. In 2012, The Bastid has become one of Canada’s most in-demand DJs and respected producers, but don’t think it happened overnight. From his humble beginnings a decade ago as a teenager in Halifax- pumping out mixtapes from his bedroom and earning a loyal following already back then- he slowly spread his skills first at DJ competitions like DMC, ITF, and Scribble Jam and now around Canada and the world as a widely recognized go-to guy for party-rocking. The illest redhead on turntables has since gone viral. Seriously, youtube that shit.


ENTRY: $10

DATE: FRIDAY MARCH 9TH

WHERE: THE MANOR, PERTH WA

DOORS OPEN: 9:30 PM 

GOOD MUSIC | GOOD PEOPLE | GOOD KUSH. 



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Araabmuzik (Dipset/USA)



If you were to Google the name AraabMuzik, you would discover a lot of video’s showing this music producer hammering on an MPC as if he were Travis Barker on the drums. With his fast rhythmic touches on the machine- while donning a New Era fitted, some might call it poetry in motion, others might say it’s suicide on an MPC, but for this producer it’s another day on the job.


Having found much success working with Dipset members Cam’Ron, Duke Da God, Hell Rell and others, he’s also shopped beats to Young Jeezy, Ludacris, Cassidy, Gucci Man, Young Dro and Fabolous. With his rapid beat making techniques, it’s easy to understand why it’s getting him on shows from state to state because it’s amazing to see.


Still curious? Check this vid out for a taste :)

DJ Qbert + Reeps One


So the time has come where the skratch Grandmaster DJ Qbert is coming through Australia with the 2 time UK Beatboxing champion, Reeps one.

Being asked to perform I said yes straight away so on the night there's a high chance Q and I will be tearin it up and some point and if not even just witnessing Qbert and Reeps one Live is an experience in itself :)

DISTRICT @ The Ambar


District returns on Friday 3 February, throwing bi-monthly parties bringing underground bass music back to the punters.

District is about the music, underground bass music; our Uptown DJs pump out Breakbeat and solid Electro. On the flipside our Downtown DJs are all about Hip Hop, Glitch, and Dubstep. Most club nights can’t deliver all these genres together; we can. Some club nights let DJs play just because they know the promoter, we pick ours because they are some of the best Perth has to offer:

Zeke makes his first District appearance, he is about as good as it gets, he drops hip hop, glitch, dub, and pretty much whatever he feels. If you’re bored; scope his cutting skills on YouTube, if you’re not; scope his cutting skills on YouTube. Further heavy weight talent is provided by FTW. Might seem like a new name but it’s just the collaboration of local favourites; Bezwun and JS. Next up is Jus Haus? to fill the peak slot. If that’s not enough Hykus takes you through the late part of the night, and Marko Paulo close out as they know best.



▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼▼
Featuring: 

Zeke (Hip Hop/Glitch/Dubstep/Qbert skratch university valedictorian)

- Breadway (Bass music fresh from the UK),

- FTW (Bezwun & JS)(Breaks/Electro)

 - Jus Haus? (Breaks/Electro/Dubstep), Hykus (Dubstep/Glitch)

- Marko Paulo (Breaks/Electro)
▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲▲



District wants to leave you with two points to reflect on:

1. Over 1000 punters came to our last Friday night party.

2. If the Mayans are correct, this is your last year to party… so do it right.

______________________________________
 Welcome to the Smoke Cloud EP, the third official release from Paper Chain artist, Kit Pop. During this audible sequence you'll be granted audience to a full spectrum of the sounds that have become synonymous with the artist as he continues his solo journey, traversing and sourcing influence from the ripe, uninhabited soundscapes he so often explores. The marching drums and retracting synths of 'Midnight Kush' followed by the low voltage wobbles and intermittent echoes of 'Gaf Tank' will serve as catalysts to the proceedings, followed by the infectious, layered melodies and signature tempo shifts of 'If I Could Say'. The Smoke Cloud's mid-section takes a sinister turn with the grimey, unpredictable drum patterns and brooding chants of 'Walking Shadow' before launching the listener into the up-beat, cosmic landscapes of 'Primary'. As the smoke clears and the proceedings come to a close 'Nothing of Me' announces itself as a strong affirmation of Kit Pop's hip-hop influence, treating the listener to an array of rhythmic drips and wall-to-wall echoes all working in unison as the drums dance between half and double time, keeping the listener on their toes before the head-knocking, calculated relentlessness of the album's summation, 'Paradigm'.

Kindly enough, I have been asked to play on the support list and will be performing before the demon himself.

After performing at Stereosonic 2011 and doing his solo shows all over the place, the GLK is throwing it down at The Bird on William Street. Thanks to The Bird and the Perth {move} crew this is a free entry gig and is not one to be missed.

////////// TA-KU //////////

Ta-ku chops soul breaks with precision moves and takes no prisoners. collaborating with MCs and artists from all round the world. Ta-ku's beats take inspiration in equal parts from hip hop and experimental French pop, dusty soul records and film scores, and are finely balanced to move hips and hearts at the same time.

////////// NAIK //////////

With foundations in sample based music, Naik has taken the musical collage concept one step further. The addition of live instrumentation and progressive song structures has seen Naik forge his way into unchartered territory with a sound that owes as much to prog-rock as it does to hip-hop.

The 2 times WAMI nominated, Diger Rokwell is the chameleon of Perth creative scene. As co-founder of influential crew The Community. His four self-released albums Digstrumentals, The Earthhead, Digerbodia and We Are All Related are an intercultural mix of global sounds, spoken word, heavy drums, driving bass, and spaced out sonics and have already garnered him rave reviews and earned him a reputation as one of Perth’s most prolific beat music producer.

////////// DR SPACE //////////

Likes playing Dub-step most of the time, supporting on many shows for Knowledge and Grizzled. He also enjoys pancake cook offs and heytell. (no relevant bio at this time)

Brainfeeders LORN (US)

As some of you may not know who Lorn is here is a short decription of his music.....big, dark, deep soundscapes which is designed to blow peoples minds of all stereotypes!

Before being picked up by the label "BRAINFEEDER", I knew of Lorn through the internet skratch world, he would make these dope ass beats to kut to and every now and then I used to chat to him on this thing called Paltalk, wonder if he'll remember me lol!


The {move} boys were kind enough to ask me to perform before and of course I accepted!

So come down and check it out, i'll be doing lots of skratching and being me in my natural element :)


DETAILS:

This friday the 25th March we will be blessed to see him perform at "The Bird" which is on william street in Northbridge, Perth.
