Krafty Kuts – LIVE @ Fabric Nightclub 2008

 

Krafty Kuts, real name Martin Reeves is one of the most influential people in the electronic music scene today with experience as a DJ / Producer for more than two decades. Never one to be tied down to a defined genre Krafty has mixed it with the best and has crafted (pardon the pun) the breaks scene in to what it is today. Many artists have come and gone over the years but Krafty is still here leading the way !

This mix was recorded LIVE at Fabric Nightclub, UK back in 2008.

 

 

 

 

Krafty Kuts Presents A Tribute To James Brown Podcast Vol.1

 

 

This mix is flawless, Krafty Kuts has gone above and beyond with his newest mix “A Tribute To James Brown & His Funky Friends”. With James Brown being such an influence in Krafty’s career it was only fitting to pay homage to the master of all things funky.

“I started collecting all things James Brown related and simply became obsessed with the JB groove. He really was an incredible character but unfortunately passed away in 2006 on Christmas Day, so I felt this was the perfect time to pay tribute to the Godfather of Soul & Funk. This mix encompasses a mixture of James Brown and his Funky People: Fred Wesley, Marva Whitney, Lyn Collins, Hank Ballard, Maceo Parker, The JB’s and more. Without doubt the hardest working man in show business, he toured the world constantly with his band and dancers, performed to millions bringing the Funk to the masses. Who would think back in the 60’s & 70’s that his music would be sampled and be the backbone of Hip Hop,music. The influence his music has had on so many peoples lives is extraordinary and without James Brown and his Funky people I don’t think Hip Hop and even Dance music would be the same. Thank you James RIP the original Funk Soul Brother!”

Krafty Kuts & Skool Of Thought – Kiss 100 FM Breakbeat Show – 19.1.2002

 

 

Starting back in 1998 (I think) was the Kiss 100 FM Breakbeat Show hosted by Danny McMillan a true advocate of the breakbeat genre from it’s early beginnings and who even had his own label. This mix from 2002 is from Krafty Kuts & Skool Of Thought who at the time ran a night in Brighton UK called Supercharged, a place where the now dons of breakbeat used to play every weekend. The Supercharged night soon turned into a label and saw some of the best Nuskool Breaks tunes of the day. This is a pretty cool mix when tunes were a lot more simple.
