Hollywood: Cut Chemist Live at Amoeba!

Cut-Chemist

WORDS BY AMOEBA:

Amoeba Hollywood – June 5th @ 6:00pm

Join us for a live performance + visuals with Cut Chemist – one of the greatest mixmasters on the planet, a world class scratch artist, and collaborator with Jurassic 5, Edan, Blackalicious and DJ Shadow.

It goes without saying he’s also a LP collector assassin too – amongst the genres he loves to crosscut, a big love of Cut’s is crunchy electronic post punk – so much so that he’s now issued the compilation Funk Off!, highlighting French minimal synthheads Vox Populi! and Pacific 231 with tracks that originally appeared on their rare ’80s cassette and vinyl releases.

JURASSIC 5:

First new track by Jurassic 5 since the reunion! Produced by Heavy D.

“The Way We Do It” was produced by Heavy D during J5’s “Feedback” recording sessions. J5 immediately connected with D as a true Hip Hop hero as well as a great person. This is one of 4 songs recorded with legend. More exclusive songs and versions of songs are coming soon!

Solid Steel: Funk Off Megamix

Solid Steel:  Funk Off Megamix

SOLID STEEL:

Solid Steel (16th May)This week the show has a distinct 80’s feel about it starting with a mix from Cut Chemist featuring remixes and songs from ‘Funk Off’, a compilation of music by 1980’s French post punk, industrial, minimal collective Vox Populi! and Pacific 231. Cut Chemist discovered their material in 2004 while on tour/record digging in Milan where he picked up a compilation featuring their track ‘Megamix’. Originally released in the 80s, the track was not rooted in disco, hip hop & DJ history but rather post punk and industrial influences. Music Concrete is what the collective would have perhaps described their approach at the time. “Wild Style on dust” was how Cut’s collaborator Tom Fitzgerald described it on hearing it 20 years later. Finding this record ultimately led to Cut Chemist tracking down the group, bonding over shared aesthetics and getting their blessing for this collection, which includes unreleased tracks, photographs and little-seen flyers and art from the group. The vinyl and CD are released in the UK on 9th June through A Stable Sound.
