A truly epic culture clash, ‘Worldwide Family Vol.2’ is not only a genuine reflection of Kutmah’s deep-seated LA roots and his new home in London, but it is symbolic of the reciprocal flow of ideas that ignites mutual inspiration in these two cultural capitals. His family in Los Angeles stand strong, proudly contributing exclusive jam after exclusive jam from the likes of Mono/Poly, Dibia$e, Flying Lotus Samiyam, Jonwayne, Seven Davis Jr., The Darkhorsemen.
Arriving in London little more than a year ago (via a US Detention Centre and a short stay in Manchester), it seems UK bass culture has seeped into the LA exile’s subconscious, too – just listen to the way ESMK’s ‘Blunt Hopes’ flips into its twitchy UKG cadence, or the rise and fall of fLako and Dirg Gerner’s eerily beautiful opus ‘Lonely Town’.
The compilation drops on April 16th in vinyl, digital and CD formats via Brownswood Recordings. Find a link to your favourite dealer here.
