Krafty Kuts - FabricLive.34 Radio Mix
Tue 26th Jun, 2007 ITM-FMin
There’s little else to say about the skills of party-pleasing breakbeat don and genre pioneer Krafty Kuts that blog-frenzied breaks fans and electronic music journalists the globe over haven’t already attested to.
His plaudits and pursuits roll off the fingers like a never-ending list of praise. His countless successful releases on labels including Finger Lickin’ Records, Southern Fried Records, FSUK, his two co-owned stables Super Charged and Against The Grain, the latter imprint hosting his most recent LP, ‘Freakshow,’ featuring the likes of Dynamite MC, The Scratch Perverts and A Skillz, just lay the groundwork for his seminal live sets. Follow that with his remix production of some of the biggest names in the game, including Jurassic 5, Utah Saints, Arthur Baker, Eric B & Rakim and Afrika Bambaata, and you see where each step-up is heading.
This is a man who can waltz into any already blazing dancefloor, in any club, in any town, in any country and take it up a few degrees, and we mean Icarus hot. “If I see people not dancing, then I immediately like to switch it up and give a good energy. If you put too much attitude into your music, then you tend to have people chin stroking or just standing around. So my emphasis is all about the party – making everyone smile and happy, everyone having a good time.”
