Cut & Paste Vol. 1 & 2
Sassbologna Records
Street: 05.12
Odetta= nonnon + Mulatu Astatke + Viktor Vaughn
I was tuned in to this cut by a DJ friend and I am not quite sure I can ever look back upon inferior DJs. There is something about raw talent that just speaks volumes through the increase of volume when listening Cut & Paste Vol. 1 & 2. Not too harsh, not too mellow, but the perfect style of your favorite hip-hop porridge waiting for your ears to devour. They say an intellectual says simple things in a difficult way and a layman says difficult things in an easy way—Odetta shows us both sides of the spectrum with no particular stance as to which he prefers. Genius.
