THE GAFF IS WICKED
He has an enormous record collection that could sit with that of any funky jock or dusty collector. Skratch Bastid enlisted the Gaff’s help to make a tape two summers ago. Bastid has enough records, but I think the Gaff brought to the project a grip of heaters, as well as his touch for weaving a narrative that is never hamfisted in it’s thematics or sacrifices the best mixing to try and juice a piece out of a record.
His mixtapes mean something and they sound incredible. This is with him and a guy called “Factor,” that belongs on the funk psych night tripper top shelf with AEIOU 2 and Chris Devlin’s Amore Guerre de Sisto.
Gaff keeps it tight in Saskatoon, playing weekly jams and getting out to play some of Canada’s best parties. He is a master of his craft, a curator, a librarian, and always funky.
This trip is baaaaaad maaaaaan.
