Of course, all of his Diggin’ In The Crates cohorts pop up here including the late great Big L, along with his Organismz Crew (a la Organized Konfusion and Mr. Complex).

Cut Beetlez & The Good People - Cut People LP - 2019

LP - 2019 - Fabyl Recordings  

The Finnish producer duo HP and J-Man a.k.a Cut Beetlez are back with their new project titled "Cut People" featuring The Good People (Emskee & Saint). 

"Funky, fresh and straight out of Finland…  ‘Cut People’ fixes up and looks sharp with the DJ/producer supersonic tag team that is H.P. Lovescratch and DJ J-Man. The Tampere two made hands clap by ‘Droppin’ Needles’ alongside Soundsci (U-George, Oxygen and Audessey) in 2017 and join forces here with N.Y.C.’s The Good People (previous collaborators with DJ Format, Boca45 and Large Professor) for a firin’ six track EP.  As Good People emcees Emskee and Saint introduce themselves as deceptively nimble in their quip-heavy devastation, the Beetlez scuttle into your eardrums with old skool aesthetic spliced with audacious samples, a quickfire sense of fun and a truckload of deck shredding.  The Guru-sampling ‘Bad News’ becomes good company for your boombox by mixing disaster movie memes with jazz-and-double bass beats. Next, ‘Then’ chronicles “the last of the flow-hicans” while a music box powers off needle fluff and J-Zone-style bumps.  ‘100% Dis’ lays down a train of Dixieland jazz wrecking early 80s ones and twos, and ‘Wildest’ closes out the EP by tipping its Stetson in a B-boy stance as both crews tread the boards.  With Finland currently ranking as the world’s happiest country, the Cut Beetlez go for theirs by bringing grins to a golden age groove."  - Fabyl Recordings
