Melbourne’s own Kut One returns with the third installment in his acclaimed Live Wires series, and it may just be the best one yet. On each one of this album’s 10 tracks, Kut One proves that he’s not only one of the genre’s best turntablist/producers—he’s also an incredible curator.
For the project’s follow-up single, Kut teams up with legendary rap bruiser Guilty Simpson for “Mount Up,” a straight-up banger that pays homage to Warren G & Nate Dogg’s classic, “Regulate.” Kut One’s snarling production stomps and slaps, and it’s an ideal backdrop for the Detroit rapper’s punishing rhymes. Never one to mince words, Guilty goes for the throat of his enemies with brutal wordplay before flexing on the hook.
In addition to Guilty, Live Wires 3 boasts guest appearances by Estee Nack, Daniel Son, King Magnetic, Craig G, Rasheed Chappell, Jamal Gasol, and more. The album is available now for pre-order via Bandcamp, iTunes and Amazon, and is officially set to drop next Friday, August 11th release date via DSPs and CD through Chopping Block Records.
