CIF 04 The Bless Up EP [Free Download]

Come one come all to the Cuttin’ It Fine Christmas party! Not one to be stingy this time of year, we welcome 2 new members to the team and deliver a sizzling EP full of Bass, Blends, Disco and Funk! But where are my manners? Let’s introduce the new members of our crew!

First up to bat is our Irish, Edinburgh based bad man on the buttons. It’s Gramophone Soul! We welcome him to the team and have already heard drafts of his debut EP, which is nothing but exceptional. Well, don’t just stand there man! Just because your new doesn’t mean you can turn up empty handed. Pat him down Pecoe, what’s he got in his pockets? Ah, an edit of “Diana Ross - Coming out” Not just yet…Back in your cage and get to work on your EP.

Next up… Hipsta managed to tempt this young man in with some sweaty Werther’s originals. We welcome Mr. Fitz to the fold! He will be joining the ranks and dropping a fist pumping four tracks with us. So far, he’s recruited Hypeman sage and many more. Expect a splice of Hip Hop, Drum and bass and general wobbly goodness from this young man. Now, what have you got? Ah, there’s a good chap. A nicely wrapped version of “Van Morrison’s Brown Eyed Girl” with some Drum and Bass skank injected? Very good lad. Back in the crate and continue working on your release.

What’s that? The rest of them are fidgeting with their offerings and possibly getting jealous of the new boy’s. Who’s next? Ahhh, the Funk lover himself. Sir Frankee More. He’s made a journey to rival the three kings from Sydney, just to deliver some bandicoot chutney and this edit of “Jungle Happy man!” Of course, injected with that unmistakable Frankee bass thump! Well done my lad. Have a chocolate coin and go back to the motherland.

Who else do we have in here? It’s Hipsta! One of the original signings to CIF. It’s about time you started pulling your weight, what gifts do you have? Oh, I say! A “Beastie Boys - Body Movin” edit they’ll be no body moving after the CIF turkey and trimmings have been devoured. However, I thank you for this splendid funk fueled re-edit of a timeless classic. You’ve done it justice good sir, now go forth and get your fingers out of Frankees chutney!!

Last but not least dressed in a delicious Egyptian tunic and aviators to match. It’s our very own funk prospector Pecoe. He was hiding in Frankee’s afro wig. Wonderful to see you, I hope you’re not empty handed? What a wonderful treat! A deliciously crafted edit of the soul queen “Etta James - Fire” It certainly is…I have a sneaky feeling this will be getting a lot of air play over the yule tide season and New year. Blessings brother Pecoe, we’ll see you next year for your second EP.

Well that wraps it up! We hope you enjoy this medley of our producers’ secret weapons and edits. This is a gift from all of us at Cuttin’ It Fine to thank you for your support. We’ve only been here for 5 months yet have had such great support and feedback from you all. Merry Christmas and see you in the new year for back to back releases!
