Skratch Bastid

Skratch Bastid was born Paul Murphy in Bedford, Nova Scotia. He rose to prominence in North America through the DJ battle circuit in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and became especially noted for his crowd-pleasing routines that blended musicality and showmanship. As he crossed over from the battle world into party-rocking he built a reputation for his particular brand of DJ set—he plays the crowd favourites in ways you’ve never heard before and introduces new music in a way that makes it feel familiar. Skratch Bastid’s DJ sets can be enjoyed by casual fans and die-hards alike, and have amassed him a global following of loyal supporters as well as the respect of the pioneers of DJ culture like Jazzy Jeff, DJ Nu-Mark & DJ EMI.
