Cutting Records were fairly prolific in the early 90’s. Not all of it great, but when they got it right, they were on the money.

Of course, they had the huge coup of having the incredible talents, of Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez & “Little” Louie Vega signed to the label as Masters at Work. At the time they were releasing on Cutting as well as some 12″s on Nervous.

This record felt like a real moment. Bringing together the breaks that were being used in hardcore, ragga & reggae influences, all wrapped up in their jazz & latin New York vibes. What a record!
