Audio: Cutty Ranks “Blood Stain” (Kush Arora remix) LargeUp Exclusive

December 4, 2012

Words by DJ Theory—

Boom bahng! Big new Cutty Ranks remix from our dude Kush Arora, the man responsible for such LargeUp remix favorites as this gem. The original gunman Cutty took a new approach with his last full length Full Blast, swapping out the slackness and dancehall which he practically helped invent for a bag of mostly one drop and culture. With features from Luciano and Beres Hammond, the record delivered a quality listen for reggae fans and helped keep a 20+ year veteran relevant today. Kush now moved his conscious roots tune “Blood Stain” into tomorrowplacing his signature “dread bass” touch all over it and letting things take a deep breath so Cutty’s lyrics could shine. Stay thru the outro for full effect and tell me you couldn’t hear a dozen deejays who would murder this riddim.

Grab this exclusive download below or cop the Full Blast Remixes that just dropped today right here. If you’re in SF next Tuesday Dec. 11th you can catch Kush rattling bassbins live at Soundpieces.
