DJcityTV’s Cutting Room series has featured some impressive lineups over the years, but Toronto’s new episode might take the cake. Representing T-Dot are nine award-winning turntablists, including heavyweights Skratch Bastid, Vekked, and Hedspin, along with Trapment, Dopey, Brandon Duke, DJ Grouch, deejay t-jr., and Needle & Groove.
Watch the five-minute session above, which was shot at the MARS recording studio.
Fresh off of hosting DJcity’s “Bastid’s BBQ” at SXSW in March, Skratch Bastid linked up with Serato to cook up a routine using Rane’s new SEVENTY-TWO mixer and TWELVE controller. The devices were released Wednesday in conjunction with Serato DJ Pro’s 2.0.2 update.
After hitting SWSW, Skratch Bastid will be taking “Bastid’s BBQ” to Toronto and Calgary this summer.
Watch his routine above.
Skratch Bastid has shared a quick routine using N.E.R.D.‘s new single “Lemon” featuring Rihanna. The track, which was released early this month, is currently No. 3 on DJcity’s Hot Box and No. 65 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
“Lemon” is N.E.R.D.’s first release in seven years. The group’s last album, Nothing, was released in 2010.

Also in attendance were two of Canada’s finest turntablists: Skratch Bastid and Hedspin. Watch above to see them perform a quick routine at the retreat.

Skratch Bastid and DJ Puffy, the reigning Red Bull 3Style World Champion, have teamed up for a soca turntablism routine. The two-minute performance makes use of the Ultimate Rejects‘ energetic new single, “Full Extreme.”
Bastid and Puffy will perform together again at Bastid’s BBQ, which will take place on June 17 at the Caribbean-themed Carivibe Beach and Food Festival in Canada.
The 2016 Red Bull Thre3style World Finals included a variety of workshops and jam sessions. One of our favorites was the “Ultimate Breaks and Beats” event, which was named after the 1980s compilation series of the same name.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a routine from Skratch Bastid, but today the Canadian turntablist blessed us with a new video. Watch above to see him get busy with one of our favorite tracks from Anderson .Paak‘s Malibu album, “Come Down.” The Hi-Tek-produced song serves as the fourth single from the Grammy-nominated project.
DJcity has reached out to Thre3style judge Skratch Bastid for his take on G Smooth’s latest public statement and video addressing the controversy that stripped him of his 2016 Australian Thre3style title last week:
G Smooth was disqualified from the competition after Thre3style judges determined much of his set was pre-recorded. In a lengthy Facebook post, Smooth asserted:
“On the night of the Australian Red Bull Thre3style championship on July 1, 2016 at Boney, my set was NOT pre-recorded. I performed my set LIVE.”
Smooth followed his post with a FB Live video showing him perform the would-be winning set in it’s entirety.
