Total Sellout review by Das Filter (in German)

Total Sellout review by Das Filter (in German)

Here’s a wonderful (German) “Total Sellout”-review by Das Filter. “Cuthead ist viel mehr MPC-Beatmaker als House-Produzent. Darüber legen die alten zwischen 2006 und 2010 veröffentlichten Stücke Zeugnis ab. Die besten befinden sich auf „Total Sellout“, erstmalig auf Vinyl und nicht nur mehr digital. Damals waren eben andere Dinge wichtig und Vinyl war eh nicht Open-Air-kompatibel…”...

Cuthead Review by De:Bug

Review machine Sascha Kösch wrote a nice piece about “Total Sellout” over at the De:Bug-Website. Read it here. “Jeder Track ein Fest für alle die Musik lieben, wenn sie ein Quirl aus Cut-Ups, zerstückelten Erinnerungen und Schmetterlingen voller launischer Gefühle ist, wenn sie Dinge zusammenbringt, die nur so zusammengehören, eigentlich aber nichts miteinander zu tun...

Cuthead talks to The Ransom Note

Could R$N reveal the secrets behind the genius of German beats producer Cuthead in only five questions? Due to popular demand the genre-skipping Dresden local is re-releasing 18 tracks he made between 2006-2010 as new album “Total Sellout” but his new baby has not clearly read the PR schedule!

UV Funk 024: Balearica Special

UVLP02 / Cuthead – Total Sellout

Total Sellout by Cuthead Cuthead got known to the wider public via his releases on Uncanny Valley but his roots reach way back before the label’s start.

We’ve been releasing music for almost 4,5 years and we’re very happy about the reaction and feedback most of our records got. But of course there are always some records where we had the feeling that they flew under the radar a bit and deserve more attention than they got so far. So we decided...

RA reviews Jacob Korn’s EP1

4.5/5 You & Me, Jacob Korn’s 2012 debut album for Dresden’s Uncanny Valley, was a swirling, often serrated and always challenging take on deep house that succeeded through experimentation rather than falling back on the genre’s usual tropes. This wonderful EP, the first of two by Korn that the label will release in the coming...

Scherben bringen bekanntlich Glück. Genauso verhält es sich auch mit der Musik des Produzenten Sebastian Stehlik alias – richtig – Scherbe.
