From the cat that brought you Thru You, as well as a whole grip of funky records, videos, and such comes a project that we thought was really interesting. Off Grid, his latest project is a sophisticated psychedelic jazz album composed entirely of clips off of YouTube. None of the clips are related whatsoever. These tracks are deep, and it is with great skill that Kutiman is able to layer these often intricate sounds, stretch time, and make this record come to life. Essentially, you have a record of people from all over the world, who jam together without knowing it, creating one of the craziest psychedelic free jazz records that (n)ever was.

The original links to every original video are included as well, so you can fathom just how insane putting this project together was. Check out the video below for yourself:
