EP: Shad & Skratch Bastid – The Spring Up
by Gregorio Vincent
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.
“This EP just resulted from good energy in the studio. We have a lot of fun writing together and really just went in the studio to be creative for the sake of having fun and making music. i think that vibe comes across in these songs and sets the tone for the forthcoming album which I contributed to as well,” explains Skratch Bastid.
