Our respect for the things Kutiman sends out to the world is deep ! What a talent !
Ophir “Kutiman” Kutiel is a 27 year old musician, composer and producer from Tel Aviv. He plays drums, keyboards, guitar and bass.
He blew everyone away with his Thru You project last year, a compilation of songs created with unrelated youtube video samples. If you haven't seen this you should definetely go here : http://thru-you.com/ you'll be amazed !
The response on “No Groove Where I Come From” was simply phenomenal. Dj's like Gilles Peterson, Diplo and Roskow (Jazzanova) were instantly hooked, the Parisien afrobeat community welcomed Kutiman with open arms and and “Straight No Chaser” magazine dubbed him “Psychedelic space funk architect”.
Kutiman is probably working on his second album right now, we are looking forward to that !!
