Mix Monday 22

The Melbourne boys Cut Copy have come a long way since I first saw them at Homebake 2005. With their debut album blowing people away they managed to do what few can and back it up with an equally brilliant and unique second album. As well as making and playing great music the boys dabble in a bit of DJing. This is something which I think more musicians should do. Whichever way you look at it, if you're a successful musician you clearly understand music. The point I'm trying to make is that not enough DJ's actually understand music and how it works, even simple things like key changes.

Cut Copy were asked by the guys at Fabric do a mix for their compilation series Fabric Live. So back in 2006 Cut Copy released Fabriclive 29. Now, if this is a mix you haven't heard I strongly suggest you do. Musically it's amazing. Their ability to slowly increase the tempo and style of music with 25 very carefully picked tracks is quite astounding and clearly evident of their understanding and appreciation of music.

Fast forward to 2009 and this is sorta like a more recent version of 2006 Fabriclive compilation. It includes a bunch of local and relatively unknown tracks. Let Cut Copy take you on this cosmic journey.
