NEW MUSIC: Shad & Skratch Bastid “The Spring Up” (EP)

Ty Harper | Audio,Music | Wednesday, June 12th, 2013



The Shad and The Bastid release their collaborative effort on arguably the beautifulest Spring day we’ve had so far.

The Spring Up is the result of fortunate timing, grapefruit Perrier, a shared high school obsession with Outkast’s Aquemeni, and a couple of sessions at Skratch Bastid’s Toronto studio this April. The 5 track collection marks a moment in time for the pair; embodying the spirit of Spring and also serving as a sort of prelude to Shad’s upcoming full-length, to which Skratch Bastid also contributes. The collection features a production assist from DJ Jazzy Jeff, and a turn on the mic from compatriot Cadence Weapon.
