Supreme Cuts, "Silkk" MP3

The two top reasons I liked Chicago's Supreme Cuts so much when I saw them last fall were because they took turns cueing samples by whacking a MIDI drum pad with a single drum stick (which is fairly unusual and looks way more rewarding than tapping an MPC with two fingers) and because Slack Kevorkian, the one with long hair, was wearing a promotional Ferrari Boyz T-shirt. Both of these things apply to Supreme Cuts' brand of electronic music: always happy to unloose a little extra energy, even with their more atmospheric stuff, and at least halfway spawned from rap. While I haven't figured out exactly what links "Silkk" to The Shocker, surely the connection is important to them. It's a well-rounded song, with ambiguous soul samples, pocket change percussion and toms pitched so high they sound like cats hiccuping. Supreme Cuts' debut full-length, Whispers in the Dark, is forthcoming via Dovecote.
