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.
