Krafty Kuts

Krafty’s career began in the 1980s, when he reached the final of a DJ contest at the age of 17, ostensibly without ever having recorded records before. As a hip-hopand electroDJ, he developed his skills in scratching and mixing and also began to work on his own productions.

In 1996, he was signed by FSUK, an offshoot of the well-known label Ministry of Sound, on which he released 3 EPs. The track Gimme the Funk on Fatboy Slim’s label Southern Fried gained great fame among DJs. This success made Krafty Kuts a sought-after remix producer in the UK. He remixed for Jurassic 5Utah Saints and Arthur Baker,among others. Numerous more singles and EPs followed, among others on the well-known breakbeatlabel Fingerlickin’ Records.

Krafty’s music has been used for commercials by Coca-Cola and Playstation 2, as well as Guy Ritchie’s film Mean Machine.

In 2006 he released his first solo album Freakshow on Against The Grain.
