In typical Krafty Kuts style the music touches on hip hop and breaks with all the juicy bits in between. From fun loving funk to outrageous bassline breaks Krafty Kuts years of experience has served him well, it really is a corking album!Come 2003 he had an urge to revisit his hip hop roots and followed up a contact he made earlier in his record store years. A-Skillz, a young super talented DJ and producer was starting to make waves and Krafty Kuts organised a project for them to join forces and embark on a hip hop party breaks album. With the aid of Finger Lickin records the Trickatechnology album was soon under way and A-Skillz and Krafty Kuts were recording with legends such as Kurtis Blow, Dr Luke and Ashley Slater. Since then Krafty Kuts has released a string of 12 records and mix CDs and DJs nonstop around the world, from playing to 25,000 people at Field Day in Australia to the Grand Prix in China, Krafty Kuts fans span the world over. In between the parties he has been hard at work on his solo artist album Freakshow which is now finished and due for release in Spring 2006 on Against The Grain.
