Yesterday morning I woke up to find this wonderful gem in my mailbox and I just wanna say THANK YOU!!!
Skratch Bastid and The Gaff teamed up to make this two part outrageous soul stirring, shoe shaking, pull-out-your-hair-brush-and-sing mix that had me busting moves in front of my mirror for the full hour and 20mins.
More than that, let’s talk about this amazing concept. Every single recording, sample, loop and break used on this Mixtape is by a female from the mid 60s to the mid 70s. When you take the time to listen to the mix you’ll realize how much of an enormous impact these females have had on music history. As a female myself I am so glad that two of my favorite DJs took the time to honor my soul mamas who I try to channel every time I’m strutting down the street or take my space in this world like every soul sister should.
Skratch Bastid and The Gaff are well known for having deep crates and always hitting you with a curve ball on their picks and this mixtape makes no exception. Though there are a few recognizable riffs I’m ready to bet money that you never knew where the original sample came from.
This mix is clearly another one Skratch Bastid’s master pieces and it’s due time that we got a The Gaff & Skratch Bastid collabo.
Just thinking about how much time and dedication they must’ve put in to make this project swells my heart so much that I’m truly considering making my way out to Toronto July 27th for the launch party of this Mixtape at the Revival Bar. Can you just imagine the boogie down party that will be?!
Again from a die-hard soul sister THANK YOU fellas!
This is a tape I’ll be sharing with my mama and passing down to my babies
P.S: Shout out to Rhek for the great Album Art!
