Skratcher Pegcity

The Almighty Skratcher Group is a Canadian DJ collective that meet monthly to practice and hone the art of scratching and turntablism.

Founded in 2012 by Vancouver DJs/turntablists Paul Skratch (Munkee Massv, No Luck ClubD.I.S.C.) and Mike Msa (Vancity Skratch Sessions), it has since expanded to add two more markets, Toronto and Winnipeg.

The SkratcherT0 chapter was initiated by DJ Dopey (MTV, Notes To Self, Turntable Monkz) and J-Tec (Turntable Monkz) last year, while the Winnipeg chapter was jumpstarted by Ill Jay 2 (USDJs) last month.

Skratcher Pegcity returns to the Graffiti Gallery on Sunday, March 15.

Bundown returns to FM dial

20120405-222016.jpg

After nine years, Bundown Sound System will return to the FM dial tomorrow night with their new weekly mixshow, Fuel Good Radio.

Collectively, Bundown – in its current form – have never shared mics on-air but there are a handful of them who are no strangers to radio.

Lucious worked the airwaves on FLAVA 107.9, CKUW 95.9 and ENVOL 91.1.

Boogie, Lord and Pleezy also served as on-air talent on CKUW.

The entire team will rock the turns every Friday from 12 midnight – 2 a.m as well as feature live-to-airs from Bar Italia, the popular Corydon Avenue haunt which hosts their fuelGOODmusic residency on Friday and Saturday nights.

In the studio

Signature discofete returns.

Studio54, our big bang discoparty will be returning this Thursday, April 21 inside the Exchange’s hottest new nightspot, 6 Degrees Martini Bar & Wine Lounge – the same venue that was rocked by M*O*V*E two weeks ago.

This time around, QUADRATIK and JAY BOOGIE will be joined by fellow music lover & breaks musicologist MAVERIK. His pedigree can’t be fronted on – he’s a member of local b-boy heroes, DANGEROUS GOODS CREW. Naturally, The Godfather, LUCIOUS, will be the firestarter for each choon.

Boogz to open for Raekwon
Wu meets Bundown.

As announced in our last post, Jay, DJ CO-OP and FILTHY ANIMALS will be opening for the Winnipeg stop of Shallah Raekwon’s Shaolin Vs Wu-Tang tour. It’s going down this Saturday, April 23 at Pyramid Cabaret.

$25 advance tickets are available at Kustom Kulture, The Urban Bakery and ticketworkshop.com. Door admission is $30 for 18+ patrons.

Celebrating 2010 & beyond

Bundown celebrates past year, fetes new year.

The guys went all out this year with their first major NYE appearance since Sound Republic‘s first Champagne Supernova party! The Saints & Sinners Masquerade Ball at Moxie’s MTS Centre featured Jay Boogie, Quadratik and Lucious setting things off proper inside the resto’s premium lounge filled with a roomful of beautiful people decked out in Mardi Gras-style masks and their finest accoutrements! Shout out to Blake Lelyk – great working with ya on this one, Red Bull, Diageo and Big Rock Brewery for sponsoring the event and MTS Centre security for holding it down at the door for us!

January is looking like a winner with the continuing Calculated Soul Live series at Lobby On York. Q will be dropping the heatery on January 15, followed by Lisa Bell‘s return on January 21 with The Motown Experience, where the talented Canadian Idol finalist will share her favourite Motown covers! Celebrated fan fave and music lover DJ @ Large (Dope Joints, 101.5FM) will be making his first CSL appearance on January 29. FYI: The Motown Experience is going to be an exciting part of CSL as it features vocal talents of all genres from across the city sharing their love of Motown!

Boogz and Q will be rocking the decks at Bar Italia on January 22 for a special booking and Boogz returns January 28 for his first appearance at their Resonate weekly alongside Alphagroove for a funk and house “bunfiyah”!

To finish off the month, the recently resurrected WTF? (Where’s the Funk?) party will make its first appearance in Vancouver at Fairview Pub on January 29 with Q and Luc via Hedonic Entertainment. The guys are really looking forward to spreading the soul & funk vibes out west!

Speaking of the west, we’d like to send mad love out to Lil’ Phil who is now based in Seattle. We know you’re gonna show ’em what time it is out there, homey!

See y’all on the dancefloor!

Winnipeg: epicentre of planned bomb attack

Soundbombing 2 returns.

Two of Winnipeg’s powerhouse DJ units will assemble to embark on another mission in their ongoing quest to propagate the gospel of hip hop culture.

Bundown Sound System and Night Life Types are internationally recognized ambassadors of Winnipeg’s hip hop culture. They have participated in all four elements of the culture over the years and have made their mark by exhibiting an unparalleled passion for hip hop.

They have been affiliated since 1997 and first officially worked together on mood ruff‘s No Hooks video. Ofield K and DJ Dow Jones were – obviously – 2/3 of the seminal Winnipeg rap trio. Quadratik and Jay Boogie were members of Flip Roc and Midnight Breakers, the two Winnipeg crews that reintroduced the art of B-Boying to the city since its heyday in the ’80s. All four appeared in the video, only the second from a local rap crew on Muchmusic. Jones was also a fixture on the city’s graf arts scene.

Jones, Boogie and D-LO were front and centre when CKUW 95.9FM went to air in 1999 with two of the college station’s most well-known mixshows, Six Degrees and The Lounge. Ofield and Jones also held down popular residencies at Bar Italia and Osborne Freehouse before Jones and D-LO began their well-known residency at Noir Wine Bar. Ofield and Jones held down residencies at Metro Nite Life and Alive In The District, respectively, while Quadratik and Boogie rocked residencies at Bar Italia. D-LO and Boogie also collaborated on their residency at Red Cactus, a venue where Ofield was also a resident DJ. Boogie was also known as Winnipeg’s “hip hop writer” after having launched the city’s first hip hop weekly and monthly columns in Stylus, Perimeter and Uptown, as well as being a contributor to the Winnipeg Free Press that covered hip hop culture and urban music.

Ofield, Boogie and Quadratik formed Bundown Sound System in 2007, with Jones and D-LO forming Night Life Types not long after. They have since been cornerstones of Winnipeg’s nightlife scene with innovative nightlife concepts and as headliners of some of the city’s biggest shows.

For the first time ever, the two sound crews promoted a concept event to celebrate their long relationship with hip hop culture in June of this year. They called it Soundbombing.

The response to the collaboration was – pardon the cliche – epic.

Once again, Bundown and Night Life Types will rock the foundations of The Orbit Room for what can only be called Soundbombing 2 this Wednesday, November 10 with doors opening at 10:00pm. Admission is $5 and it will be an 18+ event.
