Cut Chemist's Outro
It's been a long time since I've heard anything from Cut Chemist. In fact, it has been six years since anyone has heard anything from Mr. Chemist. Well, after a long, long wait, he's back and has just released his comeback single Outro (Revisited). It's a welcome return that might have you scratching your head a little bit but one suspect’s that is exactly the way Cut Chemist likes it.
Outro (Revisited) is intriguing because it sounds like a Revco or Ministry like production with a few scattered hip hop samples thrown it. Not what I was expecting at all. Anyway, the song is thrashy, metallic, and pretty angry and kind of ploughs its way through the two minutes it's around. As per usual the song is littered with samples, scratches, squiggles, and vocal riffs; mixed together the whole thing sounds a bit apocalyptic. It's good stuff that's a bit short and direct but reaffirms your belief in Cut Chemist and his ability to remain open minded and fresh. Outro (Revisited) is short and heavy and is a nice peak into Cut Chemist’s recording though process as he works toward completing and releasing his next album, Die Cut.
