A Stable Sound Episode 1: Happy Birthday Cut Chemist

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

For over 20 years, Cut Chemist has toured the globe searching for music. Now the time has come to share that collection to the public every 1st and 3rd Saturday. The show will feature different segments to tackle different genres such as cassette culture new wave and rap demos, deep funk 45s, world beats and even contemporary artists and live guests.

“I’ve been missing the ‘party in a box’ feel of mix shows that used to exist 20 and 30 years ago like NYCs Red Alert show or the LA and Bay Area’s Wake Up Show. This is my chance to bring it back and share all the great music and talent I’ve run across over the years.”
-Cut Chemist

A Stable Sound Episode 1 is a celebration for the man of the hour, always sweet, never sour and YO! Cut Chemist sure knows how to throw himself a birthday party. Guest appearances on this one include Thes One (PUTS), Hymnal, Marvski, Gaslamp Killer, the Beat Junkies and a gang of Cut’s favorite selectors plus an interview with Mark the 45 King! Enjoy.

NEW RELEASE: The Audience’s Following

Audience_v1

“The Audience’s Following” is a 10 year anniversary fan club edition version of “The Audience’s Listening.”
I like to call this the bizarro version follow up to ‘Audience’ as it features songs that never made the cut and demo versions of songs that did. There are also b-sides from vinyl singles plus a special mix of the original song sampled for “What’s The Altitude” by Curtis Knight.
Have fun listening to the album that was almost released 10 years ago.
Happy 7/11 everyone! Slurp slurp!

Cut Chemist’s “Lesson 6: The Lecture” | Twenty Years Later

IMG_7882“Now that you’re ready for your second lesson.  Let us look back and see what were the most important things you have learned from your first lesson.”  Twenty Years Ago Cut Chemist composed “Lesson 6:  The Lecture,” a 1996 recording, officially released on Jurassic 5’s breakthrough debut EP in ’97.  Fast forward to Summer School 2016, we’re blowing the dust off and reopening the text books right where we left off in ’96 in case some of ya’ll  producers forgot.

“In 1994, I released a song called ‘Lesson 4: The Radio.’  It was inspired by Double Dee and Steinski’s Three Part Lesson series in the 80s. ‘Lesson 4’ pays homage to hip hop radio mix shows that helped shape my knowledge of the culture when I was growing up.  A year later I started working on the ‘Lesson 5’ which explored the pre-rap disco breaks era.  At the same time I was doing studies on time signatures with samples.  I became fascinated with this concept so I scrapped ‘Lesson 5’ and jumped straight into ‘Lesson 6.’  I figured I would always come back to ‘Lesson 5’ at some point but never did.  ‘Lesson 6:  The Lecture’ was the last piece of my intended three part series.  It took me two years to complete with some of help from my friends.  Mumbles, Hymnal, and DJ Nu-Mark all made suggestions along the way that helped shape it into what would become a very important composition for me.  Since ‘Lesson 4’ debuted on the b-side of Jurassic 5’s first single, what better home would there be for the next in the series than on the following J5 release, Jurassic 5 EP?  This would set the precedent for every J5 LP thereafter to include an instrumental DJ track, including ‘Swing Set’ and ‘Acetate Prophets’ where DJ Nu-Mark would join in on the fun and compose with me.” -Cut Chemist

Cut Chemist presents Lesson 6:  The Lecture EP.  Remastered for 2016 this release includes his Cut’s mid-nineties opus in its original form from the original session multi-tracks with all elements intact.   The original track itself is sometimes confused for the 1999 major label “watered down” rerelease.  Also included is “Lesson 6:  Instrumental (DIY Version)” minus the cuts and dialogue plus “Lesson 6:  The Sketch” a raw and sometimes crude, unedited 15-minute practice tape that became the blueprint for this monumental lesson.  ‘Lesson 6’ has become a spring board not only for the cut-n-paste style associated with Cut Chemist’s approach to production but a feel for Jurassic 5’s music as an eclectic and inventive whole.

FUNKOFF MEGAMIX OUT NOW w/ LMTD. VINYL PRESS

Screen Shot 2014-05-16 at 2.36.54 AM

A mix of French Synth and Drum Machine based music from cassettes and records remixed into a seamless dance party the only way Cut Chemist knows how. Presented here is his latest, ultra-limited vinyl offering – Funk Off Megamix. The debossed razor blade on the cover is a call out to the “cut n paste” fashion of all of his mixes like The Litmus Test and Sound Of The Police. Funk Off Megamix explores the world of early 80s synth and drum machines primarily using material from his compilation Cut Chemist presents Funk Off.  Cut redefines this gritty dark post punk sound culled from original cassettes into a hip hop club dance floor ready mix equally enjoyable when spun on your own turntable.
