--------> More About Skratch Bastid <--------
Over the past 15 years, Canada’s own Skratch Bastid has been spreading his skills and name around the world, one sweaty crowd at a time. What first started at DJ competitions like DMC, ITF, and Scribble Jam where he became a certified entertainer and show favorite has now affected the four corners of the globe, establishing him as a “DJ’s DJ” and a true master of the craft recognized by the best in the game.
At the rate of over 150 shows a year over the last decade, his reputation as one of the hardest working DJs in the world comes as no surprise. Increasingly heralded for his comfort and versatility in different styles – hip hop, funk, disco, club, rock and just about anything that makes people dance- the Bastid has rocked dance floors in Asia, Europe, Down Under and everywhere in between. With an incomparable hold in his country where he has become a staple of Canadian DJ history, he now celebrates his culture and community in his home base of Toronto and throughout Canada with the annual Bastid’s BBQ held every summer.
His collaborations at the concert series The Flex as well as his cross-country live A/V show Skratch Of All Trades have kept him one step ahead of the competition by pushing the boundaries of live DJing. In 2011, he officially began his ambassadorship of the widely-popular Red Bull Thre3style competition and has since been an integral part of its international success, touring with it globally.
This relentless approach to live performance always gives him a leg up as a producer, helping him craft some of the most critically-acclaimed production work in Canadian hip hop including the Juno nominated Situation album with Buck 65 and Shad’s Flying Colours, among others. His own remixes and blends have also amassed millions of plays and become supreme ammo for selectors around the world.
The turntable champion and crowd favorite is steadily taking his craft to new heights and bringing his audience along for the ride. Having rocked the bar many times, Skratch Bastid is always the first one to raise it.

The MOM (Motown On Mondays) headquarters in San Francisco has been running over 6 years strong now and was founded by DJ Gordo Cabeza. Over the past few years MOM has become a hometown favorite amongst Bay Area party goers. Every Monday hundreds of soul thirsty, dance ready folks from all industries converge on MOM's dance floor to absorb and reflect the love that some the best DJs on the West coast and beyond have to offer.
A few years ago Gordo and Timo (MOM SF partner) had decided to spread the wings of the MOM DJs brand and bring the magic of Motown to other cities. The first cities in line were Honolulu and Los Angeles... more recently MOM has branched out to New York, Oakland, Denver, San Jose, Chicago, Phoenix, Sacramento, Seattle, Portland, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Washington DC, St Louis, and Miami. In 2015, the brand has plans to spread to overseas destinations!
Since December of 2011, Monday nights in LA have become something special with a refreshing weekly dance party that showcases some of the most classic soul tunes, forgotten gems, remixes and related off-shoots/inspirations from the Motown catalog, attracting a funky and diverse mixture of party goers, dancers, DJs, and music lovers! Now 3 Years old, MOM LA has become an LA favorite, while receiving write-ups from LA Weekly, being listed in the "Top 10 Club Nights For People Who Don't Like Clubs", as well as getting write-ups and features from Time Out LA, Flavor Pill, Word Is Bond, Fusicology, Urb Magazine, Amoeba and more! Once a best-kept secret in LA, Motown On Mondays has become a staple in the city of Los Angeles!
