www.skratchbastid.com


Halifax/Montreal's Skratch Bastid was the 2003 & 2004 Scribble Jam DJ Champ & 2004 Canada DMC Runner-up. He has toured Canada, US and most of Europe, holding it down on stage for rappers like Josh Martinez, Awol One and Sleep from OlDominion. In 2001, he was inducted into Mr. Dibbs' 1200 Hobos crew.

Winnipeg's John Smith has teamed with Peanuts & Corn label mates mcenroe, DJ Hunnicutt and Pip Skid to release five albums including his recent solo album Pinky's Laundromat. Its single and video for 'Kinship of the Down & Out' has reached an anthem-like status on campus radio.

Winnipeg's Pip Skid is a Canadian hip-hop veteran. Pip began his hip-hop career in 1991, and released two albums as Farm Fresh with high school friends mcenroe and DJ Hunnicutt. Years later, Pipi formed Fermented Reptile with Gruf the Druid of Frek Sho and released Let's Just Call You Quits. This past year he released his second solo album: Funny Farm.
