There aren’t many acts working in electronic music who can say they’ve had their music played by trance god Paul Van Dyk and drum & bass don Andy C in the space of a month. Cutline can. With an approach to production that’s all-encompassing Cutline make big room tunes that slot neatly between the pigeon holes of electro, dubstep and drum & bass, drawing influences from house, trance and just about everything else.
Initially noticed for their future-garage collaboration with Barbarix, ‘Hey! Plane Rave’, championed by BBC Asian Network and snapped up by High Rankin for his Suicide Dub label, Cutline’s musical output has bordered on musical ADHD trying their hand at all forms of ‘bass music’. Enlisted by Skism to remix a single for his Never Say Die label, Cutline turned out a reworking of Mindflow’s ‘Switched’ that outstripped sales of the original and the DC Breaks remix, landing straight in the Beatport charts at #2 and catching the ear of the aforementioned trance God.
Thanks to this success, a flood of remix offers came their way which saw Cutline working with J Majik & Wickaman, The Qemists, Nick Thayer, Danny Byrd & Netsky, London Elektricity, Aquasky and most recently The Prototypes. Cutline transformed their Radio 1 anthem ‘Cascade’ into a drumstep remix so filthy that Andy C immediately headed to the mastering house to cut himself a dubplate for the weekend. Meanwhile their epic electro debut single ‘Die For You’ catapulted the duo into the Beatport charts once more following support from Krafty Kuts, Far Too Loud, High Rankin and many more.
Their own label, Not Safe For Work, has already released the immense EP from Finnish dubstep wonderkid 501 and a various artists EP featuring High Rankin, Millions Like Us, Cubs and the huge “Let Me Go”, by Cutline themselves.
