Skratch Bastid Pays Tribute to Prince

Canadian DJ and producer Skratch Bastid has paid his tribute to Prince with a new turntablist video. His routine opens with the singer’s 1984 song, “Let’s Go Crazy,” followed by “17 Days,” and eventually to “Kiss.” The latter funk-influenced track peaked at number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 in 1986.
The 57-year old musician passed away yesterday at his Paisley Park home and studio in Minneapolis. He had canceled two shows earlier this month and was hospitalized last week.
Having won seven Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award, Prince has without a doubt become one of the most influential artists of his time.
Scratch Bastid wrote on his video caption:

“I will miss Prince dearly. I will continue to celebrate his music in my sets and in my spare time. Love for great music should always be evolving, and I discovered new songs of his today through the shares of others celebrating and mourning. His music will live on with all of us, as I’m sure he would have wanted it.”
