You can NEVER turn down some new Shad. Today, we get a new five song EP from Shad & Skratch Bastid to prepare us for Shad’s new studio album, Flying Colours. Sit back and enjoy this new project from the most slept on artist in North America, Shad.
The Spring Up is the result of fortunate timing, grapefruit Perrier, a shared high school obsession with Outkast’s Aquemeni, and a couple of sessions at Skratch Bastid’s Toronto studio this April. The 5 track collection marks a moment in time for the pair; embodying the spirit of Spring and also serving as a sort of prelude to Shad’s upcoming full-length, to which Skratch Bastid also contributes. The collection features a production assist from DJ Jazzy Jeff, and a turn on the mic from compatriot Cadence Weapon.
