DAD Mix 001: Feature Cuts

feature-cuts-unmasked

At DAD, we champion balance. While it’s dope to be up on the biggest artists out there, how can you stay ahead of the curve without checking for the artists who are on the come-up? We look at it like this: if you’re dope, we’re going to keep an eye out on what you’ve got on the horizon. Houston’s Feature Cuts is one of those artists.

Feature Cuts is one of our 13 to Watch for 2013, and he’s doing his thing for the dubstep sound. Seeing as 2013 is really only his second year making electronic music, it’s insane to see how quickly his name has catapulted, with a single on Excision‘s Rottun and being featured on Billboard’s “Next Sound” chart. His remix game is on point, and he has no problem taking tracks from The Beatles, Ellie Goulding, or Cassius and putting his stamp on it.

Feature Cuts’ sound is one of intensity; if you want the gut-wrenching, heavyweight dubstep bass that’s all the rage in the club, he’s got it. Many see the dubstep scene as missing something, and Feature Cuts is that peg that fits perfectly into the empty space. Our love for dubstep, along with his rise, makes us proud to have him kick off our DAD mix series. This electronic man of mystery goes in, throwing down a number of his own original productions and remixes right next to the scene’s finest, from Flux Pavilion and Emalkay to Knife Party and Flosstradamus. He’s got his finger on the pulse of this scene, and this mix is proof positive of his importance.
