Tonight at the Bear Tooth Theatrepub is the monthly First Tap event. Local production company Synapse Presents has brought up Cut Chemist Presents Tunnel Vision featuring Chali 2na. I gave myself an impromptu lesson in the sort of world music meets hip hop meets turntableism that Cut Chemist is famous for. I put together a short mix with Cut and a few of his contemporaries. For a much more in depth description of Cut Chemist and his style check out Jeri Kopet’s piece in this week’s Press.
Here are a few tracks for you to listen to on your way to the show tonight. Have fun.
