SONG OF THE DAY: Stanton Warriors – “Cut Me Up”
Breakbeat duo Stanton Warriors have unleashed a barrage of mashups, white labels, remixes, and tracks over the years, and you never know what their tracks are going to sound like. For “Cut Me Up,” they’ve jumped on the ’90s train with their own unique spin. Starting off with a Quadrophonia-era old school techno vibe, the track builds up to modern big room electro and then a really cool videogame noise drops it back to breakbeat. The appeal of this track isn’t just the flashback, but the way all the different classic and current sounds are blended cohesively to create something that is 2013 (rather than 1993). Forthcoming remixes by Etc Etc, Cause and Affect, and London Jay will no doubt take the track all over the map. The video is a bit violent, showing a pack of skater chicks getting violent revenge against guys who did them wrong – I am guessing the blood is the tie in to the track title.
