Premiere: Sirus Hood – Trapped In [Cuttin’ Headz]

The Martinez Brothers’ label proves why it is shaping the sound of the underground with a new compilation series, Cuttin’ Headz Episode One. The 10 track collection serves up superb new sounds from artists including Mr Diamond, Kevin Knapp, Daniel Orpi, Sirus Hood and Late Delivery amongst many more.

Over the last few years this label has redefined house and tech. Its cutting edge releases always look to the future and are built on robust grooves that make a high impact on any dance floor. This new collection proves that with a wealth of musical richness.

Classmatic kicks off with Mc Th on Catuca, which is a bustling and busy house cut driven by steamy percussion with deadpan lyrics lacing up the groove. Sientelo from Daniel Orpi is another steamy one for the peak time with edgy drum work and gritty hits, Jansons brings some acid with his widescreen cut and as always Kevin Knapp lays down block-rockin beats with fat bass that sweeps you off your feet. Late Delivery then hits home with the bouncy Trenches, which delivers with a catchy repetitive sample and block-rocking beat that is sure to get feet shuffling on many a dance floor.

The second half takes in Marco Tropeano feat. Sam Koperberg and their Libertad which is a heady cut with Latin flair, steamy and soulful female vocals and kicking drums. Mr.Diamond keeps up the energy levels with the high speed drum work and spinning hi hats of Tambo while further highlights come from Rhoger & Blockhead, Sirus Hood and Toby Simpson all offering fresh takes on contemporary house music.

This is a vital new collection from this always on point label.
