If you know Skratch. You know he gets busy.
Two years since his last mix excursion 110%, Skratch Bastid drops another classic mixtape for your ears, hips and feet. Arriving just in time for your summer road trips, barbecues, and rooftop parties, The Entertainer delivers 55-minutes of classic style mixing (read: actual mixing) with top-of-the-line skills, selection, and turntable expertise.
In addition to taking a fine selection of some of the best songs, new and old, to have graced dancefloors around the world, Skratch Bastid also takes the care to put his signature remix touch and blending skills on a bevy of new gems including the Bob Marley vs. War “Get Up Stand Up + Slippin’ Into Darkness (Skratch Bastid Rock Dis Funky Joint Remix)” as well as the Busta Rhymes, Lil Wayne & Hudson Mohawke “Look At Mohawke Now (Skratch Bastid’s Thunder Bay Blend)” and Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, and Damien Marley “As We Enter The Gravelpit (Skratch Bastid Blend)” among others.
Keep your ears peeled for guest shout-outs throughout the mix from Canadian comedian Russel Peters, legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff, and Menphis’ own Project Pat.
