Kuttin Edge drops ‘Bubble Gum’ EP on Locked Concept
Locked Concept introduces Kuttin Edge (Krunchtime Radio) to the imprint with his debut EP, ‘Bubble Gum’.
Alex “Kuttin” Edge is a multi-disciplinary artist from Hamburg, Germany, working in a number of artistic fields. He has long been involved in electronic music as a DJ, radio host, and label founder, constantly pushing the boundaries.
The name Kuttin Edge stands for a concept rather than a specific sound. Alex doesn’t consider himself a producer, but more of a generalist and DJ who drops some tunes. His work has always been eclectic, seeming to oscillate between past and present.
In the nineties and noughties, Alex made a name for himself in the town of Frankfurt – at the time dominated by 4×4 music. He played Drum & Bass records alongside Techno DJs and became a radio host and promoter. As a club DJ, Alex opened for Kemistry & Storm and Doc Scott. With his “Solid Solid” crew, he later promoted the emerging liquid funk sound to a German audience, including regular guests like Marcus Intalex and Calibre. In 2005, Alex tapped into production and co-founded the label Trackdonalds, one of the first digital bass music labels, releasing tracks by international artists as well as his own.
Today, Alex is best known for his “Krunchtime” brand – delivering music but also design and streetwear.
The ‘Bubble Gum’ EP is an excellent example of the signature Kuttin Edge style, combining different influences into a seamless package, this time dub, techno, jungle, and amapiano.
Today we premiere ‘Suzuka’ which you can check out below. The ‘Bubble Gum’ EP drops on Friday 17th June, make sure you grab a copy from here!
