FUNK OFF MEGAMIX + LMTD. VINYL PRE-ORDER

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.

Shades of Soul: Cut Chemist interviewed by Oliver Wang

Dust_and_Grooves_2658

Words by Oliver Wang

This one had been in the works for a minute but with his touring schedule, it was hard to fit in until now. Me and Cut Chemist sat down and chopped it up for nearly 90 minutes, talking about his life and career, plus the formative songs that go with both. It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of his work, whether within groups like Jurassic 5 and Ozomatli or his solo productions, remixes and mixes. The occasion for this interview is actually pegged to his latest release, a compilation of mid-1980s experimental French music (yeah, you heard that right) called Funk Off. If you know anything about Cut and his love for cut-and-paste, you’ll understand why he’s releasing a comp of songs by a pair of obscure artists who were scratching on reel-to-reel and assembling pastiche songs with a hip-hop sensibilities far earlier than most.

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.

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 through which 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. [This] show is a live performance that encompasses all forms of media (vinyl, cassettes and video), along with live delay and loop effects. Here, Cut reunites with longtime collaborator and Cinefamily’s own Tom Fitzgerald, who’ll perform a dense blanket of live visuals along with the music. After the break, it’s La Brune Et Moi: a “lost” film recently re-discovered, and a whizz-bang tour through the Parisian punk underground (circa 1980), starring The Conformist’s Pierre Clementi and featuring energetic Gallic bands like Metal Urbain, the Go-Go Pigalles and Astroflash!
La Brune Et Moi Dir. Phillipe Puicouyoul, 1980, digital presentation, 50 min. – See more
