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.

The event, which will take place on March 16, will consist of two parties: a free cookout during the day at Bungalow (12 to 6 p.m.) and a showcase in the night at Container Bar (7:45 to 12 a.m.). The latter will require a SXSW pass.
The cookout will feature Just Blaze, Skratch Bastid, DJ Juls, Boi Jeanius, Chris Villa, Recloose, Diggy Dutch, DJ Javin, and Abe the Assassin. There will also be a pop-up shop where fans can buy GENRE BNDR, Skratch Bastid, and DJcity merchandise.
Red Bull 3Style has selected Australia’s Beast Mode, Belgium’s DJ Cross, and Barbados’ Jus-Jay as the wild card competitors for the eighth world finals. The competition is set to take place in February 2018 in Krakow, Poland.
Beast Mode, the 2016 Red Bull 3Style Australia champion, returns to the finals after taking third place in last year’s competition. DJ Cross, the 2016 Red Bull 3Style Belgium champion, also seeks redemption while Jus-Jay makes his debut.
The three will join 21 national finalists in Poland, all of whom will be announced on Tuesday on DJcity.
