New Album from Krafty Kuts!

Krafty Kuts is back with his latest release - Against The Grain.

This epic new release contains 48 tracks over 2 CDs featuring Pendulum, Stanton Warriors, Plump DJs, Freestylers, Twocker, Black Noise, Stupid Fresh, Fort Knox Five, Bass Kleph, DJ Dan, DJ Icey, Deekline and many more! Mixed and mashed by Krafty Kuts. Supported with a huge international DJ tour and iPhone ‘DJ Tool’ app.

Following the release of Krafty Kuts’ hugely successful ‘Fabric’ and ‘Back To Mine’ mix CDs which gave listeners an insight into his roots in turntablism and crate digging, Against The Grain are proud to present this new compilation of exclusive “re-rubs” which delves into Krafty Kuts studio skills. Ever since the early days of dance music, pioneers such as Danny Krivit and Larry Levan and hip hop producers such as Double D & Steinski, DJs have made their own re-edits of tracks to add an element of exclusiveness to their sets. Usually however, those edits remain unreleased, never to see the light of day. So, it is with great pleasure and the kind help of many artists and record labels, we are able to release this CD containing 20 of Krafty Kuts’ finest, unreleased re-edits which have been igniting his sets over the past year. With artists such as Black Noise, Mickey Slim, Twocker, Bass Kleph, Miles Dyson, Tim Healy, DJ Dan and Stupid Fresh; we see Krafty Kuts give some big house hits a breakbeat makeover with devastating effect.

For the bonus disc, Krafty Kuts had “an immense amount of fun” producing a mix of Against The Grain classics, looking back over the past decade at some of the biggest tunes to come out of dance music on this killer record label which he is proud to be a part of. For this CD he’s chopped, tweaked, mixed, mashed and krafted 28 of the label’s best bangers in to 1 hour of blissful breaks. From the sexy, chart topping sounds of Freestylers ‘Push Up’ to a dubstep mix of his ‘Bass Phenomenon’ anthem, and from the thrashing drum n bass of Freestylers v Pendulum ‘Painkiller’ to Ed Solo & Skool Of Thought’s ‘We Play The Music’ summer sizzler. Krafty Kuts has all bases covered.

Here is a free song from the new release for you to enjoy:
