Notes

Digipak. Limited to 300 copies.

Cuttooth aka Nick Cooke is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne however he’s originally from Northumberland.

‘Elements’ his debut album manages to perfectly join the dots between downtempo beats and dubstep which can be enjoyed equally in a club or in the stoned privacy of your living room..

In his own words Nick says : The idea behind the album was that I'd come off the back of doing the Forcefield Kids stuff I was doing I then decided that other people are far too unreliable to work with so decided to make a solo record. I went back over some old beats, heavily edited them, changed them around and made them into coherent instrumental tracks. That gave me the first couple of tracks. From there I just went on and wrote a ton of stuff and developed the better things into proper songs. I really loved Los Angeles by Flying Lotus and though I'd been making weird hip-hop beats for years I never really felt part of that scene. I was always basically a little bit disappointed with the lack of effort a lot of hip-hop producers put into their beats and always felt that it was possible to do something more, which is why when I heard that record and the records that I found through that I was like 'This is what I want to do'. Just concentrating on really pushing what I perceived that hip-hop beats could do, experimenting with some really loose rhythms and trying to fuck with people's perception of time and groove a little bit. It came out alright.
