Back To Mine
The acclaimed Back To Mine series opens its account for 2008 with a superlative set from super deck technician, Krafty Kuts. Much admired for his faultless abilities behind the wheels of steel, Krafty follows on from the heavyweight selections of Royksopp, Bugz In The Attic and Guillemots with a funk-fuelled collection, cut and scratched across a gamut of grooves, stretching from party beats to laidback lounge favourites. Slipping effortlessly into the languid and loose sax vibes of Sharpshooters' 'Pork Pie Stride', Krafty Kuts displays his infamous skills chopping into Massive Attack's debut single 'Any Love'. Dropping seamlessly into 'Roll Over Baby' his collaboration with sometime partner in crime A-Skillz, fronted by Ashley Slater, Krafty Kuts makes a move towards some proper 80s synth pop with Nu Shooz' glittering gem 'I Can't Wait'. Entering the home straight, the smoking beats of ADOR's 'Let It All Hang Out' blend into the dub-wise Jazz of fellow Brightonians Black Grass which leaves living legend Roy Ayers, the grandfather of Acid Jazz, to segue into the blissful beats of Krafty Kuts' own 'Summer Samba.'
