Music : Kutiman

We celebrate the music, not its origin. Country separates physical boundaries, not creativeness and belief.

Kutiman is an Israeli afro-beat/electro/funk producer has produced one such example of earth shattering greatness. Sampling 100’s of freaks, geeks and undiscovered bedroom artists from various YouTube videos, Kutiman has created an Internet phenomena that could rival porn, yes, it’s that good.

Thru You is, as far as we know, the first and if not, certainly the finest, collection of YouTube mash-ups that beggar belief in their complexity and innovation, the beauty being that Kutiman has created tracks which standalone when listened to without the accompanying video cut-up’s and in the process could well have unearthed some future stars. Stay tuned, YouTube sampling could be the next big thing.

The result is a spirited and texturally rich mix of psychedelic soul and Afro-funk, with slippery grooves and snapping beats. His music is not for everybody but if youre in for a genre-swapping listening, Kutiman is a must for your playlist.
