Having collaborated on music for their label Plump Records before, Kevin Knapp & Hutchtastic present Plump Cutz Slice One, a superb collection of seven strong and club ready cuts from core artists past, present and future. This vital new label has established itself as a unique outlet for fresh house and tech sounds as well as being proudly all inclusive and queer, sex and fat positive in its mission. This collection is another strong statement of its signature sound.
Baby Luck kicks off with the sleazy and bumping tech house of Play With Me, Beth Lydi’s Come And Get Me then layers up prickly off-grid percussion and metallic drums and fat bass, while Jon Lee & Tony H ‘s Ohhhhh That’s Right has a ducking and diving groove that oozes late night house funk.
KC Wray’s Congas is another muscular house cut with full flavour vocals and plenty of attitude. Kevin Knapp appears with Disco In The Cuts which flips the vibe thanks to its filter house vibes, loopy synths and disco tinged cosmic house beats. Nicole Fiallo then gets back to a pumping house sound with the chunky slaps of Let’s Go Out and Prince.L, Esven & Daladje’s Louise Thang gets more freaky with squelchy bass, late night synth sounds and a spaced out groove.
Plump Cutz Slice One is a fanatic start to an essential new series.
