Shad & Skratch Bastid – The Spring Up [EP]
London, ON – Originally posted June 15, 2013 – Not to long ago, Shad teamed up with acclaimed Canadian producer, Skratch Bastid, for a collaborative EP known as, The Spring Up.
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.
