Let the Record Show, the crate-dug interview series in which artists discuss their favorite songs of all time as the tracks spin on vinyl, continues its third season today, as hosts Mike Pizzo and Warren Peace sit down with turntablist/DJ/producer Cut Chemist.
In Las Vegas earlier this year for the unveiling of the Technics 1200MK7 turntable at his Boiler Room performance with Kenny Dope, the man legally known as Lucas MacFadden stopped by Let the Record Show to drop knowledge on some crate dug classics.
Cut’s song picks reveal an obsession with the intricate sample-based production of Large Professor, the Bomb Squad and the Dust Brothers, along with some deep cuts from The Beatles, Giorgio Moroder and the Sylvers.
It’s been a busy year for Cut Chemist, who recently contributed to Sony/Marvel’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse score. Cut also created the music for the Spike Jonez directed stage show Beastie Boys Story, with an accompanying Beastie Boys Book Mix. In this episode, Cut also teases a 20-year anniversary show for his cult classic ,7-11 inspired mix with DJ Shadow, Brainfreeze.
Cut Chemist’s appearance on Let the Record Show marks the twenty-third episode in the series and the eighth episode released this year, following each Flosstradamus, Lil Jon, Kurupt, Mayer Hawthorne, Just Blaze, Maste Ace & Marco Polo, and Georgia Anne Muldrow. Season 3 will continue with Tech N9ne, Murs, and the long-awaited reunion of the High & Mighty.
