Kut One - Live Wires (Producer LP)
Melbourne Based Deejay/Producer Delivers High Voltage Compilation Album
By: Chopping Block Records
Kwest kicks off the project with a bang on "Active Shooter," a highlight for listeners and Kut One alike. The producer expressed his excitement for getting the opportunity to link with the Queens emcee, noting that he's been a fan of his for so many years. He shared that sentiment when talking about the album as a whole, too, saying that it was surreal "to be able to get the artists that I listen to on the regular, on my beats."
Those artists, including those already mentioned, hail from various places around the globe. On "Experience the Best Teacher," Kut One teams with fellow Melbourne resident Ciecmate for an absolute banger that borrows from Gang Starr's "Above the Clouds" on the scratch hook. And then there's Brooklyn legend Rockness Monsta's appearance on "Fake Fancy," a slapper filled with verbal darts for the phonies out there. Equally as dope, Baltimore's ILL Conscious shines on the brassy "Despise the 85."
In all, Live Wires is a victory lap for Kut One, an artist who seemingly never sleeps and also never rests on his laurels. While his affinity for boom-bap is evident across this album, he tinkers with the sound to inject new life and, more importantly, his own unique flavor. And for those who love the culture as much as he clearly does, what more can you ask for?
Live Wires becomes available through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms on March 20, 2020 via Chopping Block Records.
