Meat Beat Manifesto – Cutman [1990]

The very last track on MBM’s first and in my opinion best album is a full on breakbeat assault using a ridiculous number of samples. I have no idea how they managed to get clearance for so many tracks considering the sampling backlash was in full effect at the time. Still, its the reason the track is called Cutman and all the chopping is what makes the track. It features a wicked mini re-edit of Rocksteady by Aretha Franklin amongst the mayhem which just kills it before going way off back into some heavy electro business. Now the above video is taken from the beginning of the incredible “Live At The Social” mix from The Chemical Brothers. A mix, so good, if you have never heard it before, perhaps its time you started!
