In an effort to reach 15,000 followers on Twitter, turntable maestro Cut Chemist teased to a new mix or two he would release if he hit the mark by the end of the year.
It didn’t happen â€“ 13,000-plus followers ain’t too shabby anyway â€“ but Cut still promised to come through with some goods, and he did on New Year’s Eve, offering up a pair of mixes on a newly created Soundcloud page: “Hip Hop Lives (1985-1996)” and “Disco is Dead (1973-1979).”
Says Cut: “I chose these mixes because they are two eras of music that I love and have a strong history with. I want people to remember that my roots lie deep in these genres when I go off into ‘outer space’ on future mixes.”
Both mixes have handy annotations from Cut Chemist.
