This give away has ended. Thanks to all who entered. Winners are being notified by email.
If you are like a lot of us in the hip hop community and you are tired of the same old in the club, drinking bub lyrics and stale beats; Scion and DJ Cutler have a project that all of hip hop can enjoy.
I usually do not like mix tapes because they have lost their edge, at least to me, and they lack creativity.
It seems everyone thinks they can do a hip hop mix tape, but it takes real instinct and ‘feeling’ what you are doing to deliver good quality, stand out hip hop tracks on a mix tape.
DJ Cutler has shown his ‘feel’ for his art and for hip hop on Scion CD Sampler v.16. If you like the ‘scratch’ and music that you can ‘feel’, this is one project that you need to check out; and thanks to Scion we are able to offer DJ Cutler’s CD as an April Hip Hop Giveaway.
DJ Cutler, winner of Scion's Free Up Your Mix contest, has put together a mix that showcases his scratching and juggling skills over a selection of underground hip-hop and breaks and features many local acts from his Buffalo, NY hometown. This crate digging connoisseur is also a member of the band Pseudo Slang.
Scion's mixtape series was recently recognized by the industry-leading; Mixtape Awards - founded by the late pioneer Justo Faison, with a nomination in the Best Promotional Mixtape category.
Along with the DJ Cutler CD, Scion has also included a few copies of Hip Hop Notable Big Daddy Kane and Percee P vs. Connie Price and the Keystones CD which has 2 tracks and you get the complete track, an instrumental and the acapella for each track. The two tracks on that CD are Give Me a Demonstration and International Hustler. (6 cuts in all).
