Krafty Kuts the SoundCloud

https://i1.wp.com/www.tufs.co.uk/uploadsAdmin/KraftyKuts.jpgMost should be aware of the awesomeness that is SoundCloud – if not familiar with it at the very least its guaranteed you would have stumbled across some form of it via your interweb surfings. Be it on Facebook, Twitter, or some kind of forum, DJs, Producers and all kinds of music nuts are jumping on the Cloud-wagon.

For those that are new to the SoundCloud phenomenon, it’s a Belgian run dedicated music website that, in a nutshell, enables DJs/Producers/Musicians to upload any type of music/mix/production to an account for free streaming and downloading. They’ve hit a niche in the market and in the last year or so have sky rocketed to immense musical internet stardom. Pretty much, they make it bloody easy for artists to get their music heard on the net.

But I digress, this post wasn’t supposed to be about how fekin ace SoundCloud is… it’s was meant to concentrate on the fact that Krafty Kuts has recently jumped on and registered himself an account. I happened to stumble across his profile last week and was stoked to find that he had a veritable smorgasbord of live sets up for grabs. 7 sets to be precise, all chock full of the music we’ve come to know and love Krafty playing. Breaks, beats, funk, hiphop – you want it, he’s got it! Spanning almost the entirety of his DJing career, there’s old and new alike, with more recent shit, all the way down to older gems from 2001!

There was one set in-particular that initially caught my attention, a small 60 min mix from way back in 2001 that Krafty did for Mixmag. The infamous ‘Instant Party Mix’ – a CD that was given away free with an edition of Mixmag many aeons ago. A then FREE CD that is now being sold on the net for mad coin! It was released back in the honey-moon days of Breaks when they were fresh and everything that was being released was so funky you had to check your ass hadn’t fallen off from all the shaking and dancing. It’s easily the stand-out gem of the bunch, but that’s not to say the rest aren’t quality, cause fuck man, every set there is golden and defo worth a listen if your into your breaks.

So if your keen for some new and/or oldskool breaks head on over to his SoundCloud account, or simply give them a stream down below. They’re definitely worth a listen, and if you don’t like them, it’s not like you’re paying for them! 😉

    The cream of djing and production just keep rising to the top on Soundcloud. It truly is an international aural forum for the masses!!

    I have lost count of how many times I’ve listened to the ‘Instant Party’ Mix…sooo funky!!!!!!
    Will definately have to D/L another copy,as the last time I recall listening to it was in my girl’s car. My girl’s car…*sigh*…the place where too many cd’s are cut down before their prime.

    Cheers for the heads up Slippery!!

    Peace

    • Oh dude – the Instant Party mix is phenomenal! Bringing back so many oldschool memories. Mad props to krafty for putting everything up there.
      He upped a shitload of unofficial remixes a day or so after i dropped this blog – majority of them are free to download and high quality. Get onto it! 🙂
