Best Local DJ

Skratch Bastid

He now lives in Montreal, but Skratch Bastid AKA Paul Murphy still considers himself a Haligonian, travelling back to his hometown to play shows every month. He also stayed visible in 2005, releasing his first full-length of originals, Taking Care of Business, and placing second at the Canadian DMC DJ competition. It’s the mutual appreciation between party-going SuperCitizens and the talented turntable trickster that won him this award for the third year in a row. “The people just have this energy about them that pushes me hard,” Murphy says. “I guess it hits home and I know what level they’re on, you know? It’s my kind of energy.”

Runners-up: Kid Savini, DJ IV
