What makes a perfect DJ? If we were more schooled in the study of science we would break it down as a chemical equation, befitting the status of our next DJ. But suffice to say, when it comes to Cut Chemist, the elements are there.
He’s part mixtape king, club rocker and live DJ for funk bands and rap crews, equal measures cut and paste production guru, beat maker and crate digger. Plus, his live shows catch fire quicker than a length of magnesium ribbon.
Recent gigs on these shores have seen him rocking two Technics decks, two CDJs, Serato Scratch, 45s and 12-inch records. Not to mention a mic to record quick conversations with crowd members to immediately cut up over his set. School is definitely out when Cut Chemist is in.
Cut Chemist shows us why he’s one of the best drum scratchers in the world
