Redmist Improvise Wisely (7") South American producer Redmist's name is synonymous with jazzy scratch loops and heavy basslines within the global scratch scene. As a follow up to his first release with Cut & Paste Records, Redmist's “Improvise Wisely” is now available formatted for 7", including some new lock-groove tones on each side. Each side has mixture of Redmist's skip-proof vocal samples, as well as guitar, keys, brass, drums and bass, plus new lock grooves, different from the ones found on the 12”, adding to our growing library of lock-tones for pitch play.. All samples are arranged at 83.33 BPM to work well with regular speed turntables and portable decks with a regular pitch range. Both the lock tones are played in the same key for ease of use when switching between them. The drum loops on each side have been re-arranged as a mixture of 2 drum loops from the original record in skipless format. This arrangement allows for new funky drum combos, all in a skipless format. Cut & Paste 7"
Simiah 7 Steps Of Alchemy As a follow up to his first release with Cut & Paste Records, Simiah's 7 Steps Of Alchemy acts as both a new single, and as a 7” formatted version of his previous scratch record. Side A contains an instrumental beat called Calcination – named after the first of the 7 steps of Alchemy, according to many spiritual writings on the subject. The theme of Alchemy continues from Simiah's previous release with Cut & Paste Records – The Alchemy Files – and Calcination was thought of as a hidden extra from the EP. The track is followed by a scratch sentence made up of instrument samples taken from Simiah's MPC. You'll find horns, keys, guitars, bass and drums, perfect for jamming, practice, and especially good for loop-pedal or sample-based composition. Side B contains some of Cut & Paste's trademark skip-proof vocal samples, for any DJ wanting to stand out with original style and cuts. They're all arranged at at 83.33 BPM to match to the tempo of beats featured on the entire Alchemy project. This speed works well for regular turntables with +/- 8% pich. (Many of our other records are specifically aimed at users of turntables with Ultrapitch of +/- 50%). Cut & Paste 7"
Simiah The Alchemy Files The new album from the renowned UK beatmaker Simiah. The Alchemy Files represents Simiah's first (but long-overdue) foray into scratch records. He put together 4 beats on Side A that would stand out on their own as an EP, but left enough space in each of them to allow for some freestyle instrumentation if the moment calls for it. That's where Side B comes in... raw audio from Simiah's MPC was given to Symatic from Cut & Paste to arrange into skip-proof scratch tools – drums, bass, horns, keys and more, all arranged for ease of use by a DJ to compliment the tracks on the flipside, or to become entirely new compositions of their own.

Krayb David Eggship Me Now Krayb David was born out of the now-legendary Community Skratch Games which, for the past 10 years, have offered an alternative to the tired formats of most international turntablism shows and competitions. Tales From The Eggship sounds like the music for a computer game, and we are told it documents the interstellar voyages of Krayb David as he drifts through space and time. Each track corresponds to a part of his absurd journey, with the 2 remixes perhaps representing alternative realities as Krayb's perception distorts and fractures as a consequence of his time-travel habit. Tempo, rhythm, atmosphere and texture all change throughout the EP, with some tunes drifting wildly from one style to the next. While the journey is fast and confusing, it invites the listener to follow along and then continue beyond - which is why we hid some exclusive skip-proof scratch sentences on the record, along with an ambient and never- ending interlude that ends on a lock groove. (These bonus tracks are only on the vinyl release) Track 1 (Athlone To St Petersberg) has been deemed worthy of 2 vastly different remixes, by pioneering artists The Person (Ireland) and Valance Drakes (UK). Breaking out of the same old format, Tales From The Eggship is not your average Cut & Paste release, your speakers won't know what hit them... Cut & Paste 12"
Kutclass / Darcy D / Noka, M_Cue / Electrofood_CH / Symatic Just Stay Funky Like Za "Just Stay Funky Like Za" is a 7" skipless scratch tool created with portable scratching in mind, pressed in Purple. Featuring skip proof loops from "Just Stay Funky Like That" and "Zarecord" portable scratchers have two scratch records in one re-configured to a pitch that works perfectly with portable set-ups. Portable turntables have been popularized over the last few years as the ultimate accessory for scratch dj's wanting to practice without having to take a whole setup out with them. With their lower standards of build quality, however, the turntables are more prone to skipping, so a skip-proof scratch record is a must. Cut & Paste have worked out the most effective design for such a record and have made CNP006 with portable scratchers in mind. acked with original vocal sentences and hooks, and with skip-proof drums and locked-groove bass tones, this tool crams a lot in to it's diminutive size!

Symatic / Kutclass / Darcy D Just Stay Funky Like That Just Stay Funky Like That is a skip-proof scratch record full of original sentences, tones and drums. Side A is set up for ultrapitch turntables capable of -50% pitch, so you can scratch with the platter turning at a slower speed, giving you more control and allowing more sounds to fit into each groove. Side B is configured at 83.33 BPM which is a good tempo for normal turntables capable of +/- 8% pitch range. At the end of each side is a drum track and a lock-groove tone. We have also made Sample map stickers to accompany this release, which are included with the record and can be applied over the label to show exactly where each sample is. Cut & Paste 12"
