Supercrawl Presents Skratch Bastid with LTtheMonk and Hachey the MouthPEACE (Matinee)

About this Event

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. Since he is increasingly recognized for his comfort and versatility in different styles – hip hop, funk, disco, club, rock, and just about every other genre that will make you dance – more and more people are getting hip to his style. That's what keeps this Bastid working so hard. Touring city-to-city with a relentless drive, he's wowed crowds from coast to coast in Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, Japan, New Zealand, Brazil and all over Europe as he averages close to 200 shows a year.

LTtheMonk, originally from London, UK, first fell in love with hip-hop when he was just eight years old. After hearing classic hip-hop albums from the era such as The College Dropout, Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ and The Documentary, LTtheMonk knew that he had to find out properly what this music was. Combining this with an interest in reggae (shown to him at an early age by his Jamaican mother) and rock (via his Irish father), LT’s adventurous love of music and performing onstage grew throughout the years, culminating in the release of his first EP at age 17. He has since grown into a vibrant and compelling talent. LTtheMonk’s 2015 debut album, Monk in London, described his career, relationship with his home city and journey to adulthood. His 2017 release The Dark Side of the Monk was an introspective and wide-ranging session rooted in California production aesthetics and informed by contemporary race politics. LT’s latest outing Kinks, Drinks & Hip-Hop reflects another leap in personal and artistic evolution. The album is as questioning as its predecessors, serving up an in-depth exploration of his romantic relationships, place in hip-hop and the music industry, and more discoveries of his persona. His upcoming, as-yet-untitled full-length album will be released on Sonic Unyon Records.

Jason Hachey, better known as Hachey the MouthPEACE, is a formidable beatboxer from Hamilton, Ontario who has proven his chops for years — he was named MuchMusic BeatBox Champion in 2013 and has held his own in a Supercrawl concert collab with the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra, no mean feat. Every sound in this live-looping beatbox artist’s musical palette comes from a single instrument: his mouth. Vocals, percussion, bass, turntable scratches and other rhythmic sounds on his recordings and live performances are all created using his tongue, larynx, lips and a wide variety of complex breathing techniques that must be witnessed to be believed.
