Cut Chemist feat. Edan: Mean Gene

gene.jpg

I’m not really sure why, but I thought about Cut Chemist on the way home from work on Wednesday. I think my eye caught his name on my iPod, so I figured I’d give his MySpace a check to see what’s new because it’s been more than a year since he released his great solo debut The Audience’s Listening.

Though he didn’t have anything new to offer, Cut did have a downloadable track – Mean Gene, a B-side from the What’s the Altitude single.

How does this work with Edan? Does he tell every producer/DJ to just make the illest, dirtiest beat ever and he’ll throw a few raps down? Whenever I listen to Edan – especially on Beauty & the Beat (get it at eMusic) – I feel like I’m listening to him through some janky AM-only radio. Really, it’s kind of endearing. If lo-fi hip-hop needs a posterboy, Edan is the easy choice.

And, oh, Cut Chemist pretty much rips it here, too. But you already knew that.

  1. dark break beat loops archaotic melodramatic bosanova swing, hell what else does a growing boy need, seriously though this track reaches out to all origins and tastes to suit.
