Symatic / Electrofood_CH / Kutclass / Darcy D / Noka, M_Cue 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!

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"
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"
Modusoperandi Endless “As advertised, we’re going to be introducing in just a moment one of the top jazz groups in the whole world, they play all around the whole world too...“ Redmist, DJ Perez, Fso & Gozt are Modusoperandi and “Endless” is their debut studio album. Performed live on the Chilean S-Word Community Skratch Music Tour in January 2020, at the height of the ongoing Chilean revolution, the album was fuelled by the collective energy that has been steadily building throughout the country. “When do you get a chance to practice? I don’t get a chance to practice. That’s a serious sacrifice.” Modusoperandi's mentality is that of a jazz band which performs using turntables as the primary instrument. Passion is always high, and time is always short... each take is the real raw deal. Every member of the band is involved in numerous groups and projects, and a diverse range of styles and influences are found meshed together in these wondrous and inspirational tracks. The skratch composition tool “Phonosophy” (CNP021) was released by Modusoperandi in late 2019, and Endless was conceived using this scratch tool as an essential component of the creative process. The A side of this album was recorded in Berlin just before the 2019 Community Skratch Games in Galway where the band’s performance of these first five tracks were the absolute highlight of CSG that year. The A side tracks are Cantina, Marienfelde, Never say the S-Word, Blue Dooms and Absurdo. They take the listener deep down the rabbit hole that is turntablism and jazz fused together by four of the strongest established turntable musicians that perform today. The B side tracks are Oldish, Endless, Jungle and Malditos. They explore fresh directions based on previously explored ideas... an eternal loop in perfect balance, a constant changing landscape of rhythmic ideas expressed in brass, stuttered drums and waveforms cut under a stylus. The B side was recorded in Santiago, Chile just before the S-Word Community Skratch Music Tour kicked off. Mastered by D. Perez, art by Fso. Retailers please note: Cut & Paste Records 7" and 12" vinyl arrive without shrink wrap or plastic polybags as we are trying to do our bit to keep the planet in good shape and we've had feedback that shrink wrap can also warp records and sleeves.

Modusoperandi Phonosophy Modusoperandi are Redmist, D. Perez, FSO & Gozt hailing from Chile. “Phonosophy” is a collection of instrumental loops, samples, tones and drums arranged on 12” vinyl for turntablist performance. Released as the cornerstone of the S-WORD Chilean Community Skratch Music Tour, this library of sonic textures will provide the raw ingredients for Modusoperandi's forthcoming all-scratched jazz album. On top of that, the record will be given a thorough test-ride during the tour by the band and their fellow vinyl-abusing travelling companions: The Skratchlords, Cut & Paste Records, and the S-WORD Ensamble. Side A starts with vocal samples arranged at 83.33 BPM: 6 skipless vocal loops selected for their raw swing and overflowing flavour, followed by a series of skipless drum loops with a wide range of timbres and atmospheres. They have been engineered to deliver the punch that stands out in a live performance and a studio setting. The slower tempo ensures comfortable spacing of the individual sounds for scratch-drumming. The following 3 tracks of mixed drum breaks and percussive rhythms are arranged at 133.33 BPM, and each sample is arranged so it starts at the same point as the record rotates to facilitate cueing. Next up are sections following the same principal but with wind, vocal, synth and drum samples, with 3 additional sample banks used by Modusoperandi to perform their set in Galway at the Community Skratch Games in April 2019. At the end of the A side you’ll find a skipless drum loop and 5 independent synth tones, all perfect locked grooves cut by a master vinyl-engineer, Pete Norman. Side B is arranged at 133.33 BPM and starts off with ultrapitch vocals; some re-versioned loops from the flipside, and some fresh material to get busy with. If it's a hard-hitting scratch weapon you want or an ear-catching hook, just throw your needle to the outer part of the record and you'll catch some deadly grooves! The rest of this side is arranged in sections based on instrument type: wind instruments, strings, keys and bass. With treasures hidden throughout this release, you can keep your imagination spinning under a stylus using this magnificently crafted record. Cut & Paste 12"
