For our 'Customize your Life' series we've opted to keep things simple because attention spans are short and rapid fire questions mean more blog posts for you! Expect short-form reads, pictures and succinct Q&A's. For our first profile we reached out to longtime client and friend, Skratch Bastid, and asked him to keep that Beyonce sample on loop and answer a few quick questions:
Name: Paul Murphy aka Skratch Bastid
Current Locale: Toronto
What's a day in the life of Bastid look like?
Look for music & cool sounds; make music & cool sounds; perform music & cool sounds; eat delicious things in between, all whilst traveling the globe.
Why is personal branding important to you?
Personal branding is important to me because DJing is a crowded market. You have to find ways to stand out and for people to remember you if they like what they hear/see. Having my logo on a Gelaskin on my laptop is any easy way for people to recognize who is on stage and rocking the party!
What's next/what's on deck?
Always touring and playing new places - Australia and Eastern Asia are next (check here
for all the info). I am working on my own album in the studio as well, first Skratch Bastid album ever! Never a dull moment...
