Cut Chemist – Funk Off

Cut Chemist is known for his progression and innovation. Not one to sit idle, if that were true, he would still be focused on Funk and Soul 45s (although he still kills it in that genre as well). If you’ve been following him throughout his career, he digs and dabbles in different genres. However, it isn’t just dabbling. The man conquers everything that comes his way. Whether it be his own solo career as an artist through sampling or the records he plays out, he’s got a knack for being able to get the best and rarest, then bring it to the masses. Jazz, Funk, Soul, Hip Hop, Post Punk, Rockabilly, Electronica, Psych Folk, or African Funk, no genre is safe when Cut Chemist gets his hands on it. This is why this release is so special. While every other artist is trying to do the latest Trap remix, Cut Chemist is on some other shit. and it is miles ahead of what any one else is doing. So when he released “Storm”, featuring Edan and Mr. Lif from his debut effort on Warner Brothers The Audience Is Listening, he sampled a French minimalist group called Vox Populi. He then contacted the band and their associates Pacific 231 to get a listen to more music from that time period. Funk Off is the product of that. Always pushing boundaries, always bringing the audience new sounds, Cut Chemist proves once again why he is one of the best. DJ, artist, crate digger and historian, Cut Chemist is rescuing even more forgotten music and bringing it to the forefront of our culture. Remastered from the original recordings and with included bonus tracks, this release is available on vinyl as well as digital. Grab yourself a slice of history.
