Preview: Krafty Kuts at Canvas
Those in the know will know that Krafty Kuts is one of the key pioneers in the UK breakbeat and bass movement.
He has released music big brand labels such as Ministry Of Sound, OWSLA, Southern Fried, DMC, Fabric and more.
Krafty Kuts has had his own record store chain, run labels, promoted critical scene events, formed his own band Wicked City and performed to crowds of 40,000 alongside the biggest names in music from the Rolling Stones to The Prodigy.
His real name is Martin Reeves and he has hustled his way to the top – previously working as a clown’s assistant and even a bingo caller. Thankfully his talent and passion for music was soon noticed and he credits his colourful CV for helping him save for his first pair of Technics.
“The clown job was fun. The trifle testing job was tasty. Bingo calling was a warped look into the
world of an MC but without the music,” his rep told us.
All this and we haven’t even covered Krafty Kut’s life as a DJ. Famed for his inventive combos and totally technical chops, Krafty’s sets smack of a man addicted to funk in all its forms. His Slam The Breaks series and Mixmag’s Instant Party 2001 covermount CD are especially of note as they coining breakbeat’s core spirit of melting down sounds, styles and flavours and set the blueprint for the bass phenomenon that was to soundtrack the 21st century.
He has since toured the world. From Rocking The Daisies in South Africa to Electric Castle in Romania by way of Glastonbury, Bestival and Australia’s biggest music festivals Breakfast, Big Day Out (to over 40,000 people alongside Rage Against The Machine and Bjork) and Summadayze (to over 25,000 straight after Groove Armada). He’s also played unique events such as the Chinese Grand Prix and Spotify’s launch party and is resident at Dubai’s Zero Gravity.
Krafty Kuts has also hosted and sold-out events in the legendary Fabric, Matter, Cable and Brixton Electric where he’s recruited friends such as Grand Master Flash, Z Trip, Thievery Corporation, KOAN Sound and Big Gigantic. In short, Krafty’s showman skills have remained as in demand as they were at the turn of the century.
Canvas is the logical next step of course – where better in Bournemouth to showcase his skills?
