Melbourne’s own Kut One returns with the third installment in his acclaimed Live Wires series, and it may just be the best one yet. On each one of this album’s 10 tracks, Kut One proves that he’s not only one of the genre’s best turntablist/producers—he’s also an incredible curator.
For the project’s debut single, Kut connects with three like-minded, steely-voiced emcees—Estee Nack, Daniel Son, and Saipher Soze—for the menacing heater, “Good for Nuthin.” The Australian-based producer/turntablist sets the tone with a snarling, teeth-gritting instrumental, which his collaborators use to their advantage to deliver equally raw lyricism.
Live Wires 3 also includes guest appearances by King Magnetic, Craig G, Rasheed Chappell, Jamal Gasol, Guilty Simpson and more. The album is available now for pre-order via Bandcamp, iTunes and Amazon, and is officially set for an August 11th release date via DSPs and CD through Chopping Block Records.
