'Cut It Up' remains one of my favourite DJ tracks of all time, with Mr Mixx on top form. This was a favourite from the debut LP by 2 Live Crew '2 Live Is What We Are' and it was great to find this on a 12". In retrospect this is kind of 2 Live's Miami style version of 'Peter Piper' by Run DMC and just as fun to listen to. The beats are deadly as you'd espect from this era and the cuts were in a class of their own for that time too. Anyone who only knows latter releases by 2 Live and only remembers them as a footnote in Hip Hop history for their obscene lyrics and subsequent bans shound check this out and the first 2 albums (not to mention the 12"'s they dropped prior to those) to hear that this early stuff by them is the real deal, and that Mister Mixx was a scratch pioneer.
