“I wanted to make a record for loners.”
Producer, DJ and cornerstone of the beat scene Kutmah will release new record The Revenge Of Black Belly Button! on Big Dada this summer.
Abbreviated to TROBBB!, the record features an all-star list of collaborators, including Gonjasufi, Jonwayne, Natureboy Flako, Ta’Raach, Jeremiah Jae, Zeroh, Zackey Force Funk, N8NOFACE, Sach, Akello G Light and DJ Chris P Cuts, bringing Kutmah’s production skills to the fore.
Laced in deep psychedelia and mediative jazz loops and pepped with the urgency of punk and noise, TROBBB! follows a handful of released on Hit + Run and his own Izwid Records, and like the link to Big Dada, searches for a sonic connection between Los Angeles and London.
“I wanted to make a record for loners,” Kutmah says. “You know some records have that ‘Hey! I’m at a festival!’ sound? Well I wanted to do the opposite of that.”
Kutmah’s TROBBB! is out on double vinyl on 11th August via Big Dada. Pre-order your copy here.
