Funkin, Jazzin & Club Mashin DJ and producer from Brisbane, Australia.
Dastardly Kuts has been bringing his mashed up blend of disco/ funk and party style house, breaks and hip hop to Australia for the past eight years. In this time he has played every state in the country, supporting a plethora of big name artists from all over the dance music spectrum, warming up the stage for the likes of Hybrid, Stanton Warriors, Deekline, Lady Waks, The Beatnuts, Stickybuds, All Good Funk Alliance, Philly Blunt, Butterfingers, Scribe, Urthboy, Sampology, Tom Drummond and Slynk and in the process has gained a reputation of being one of Australia's premier party starters.
Dastardly Kuts has also cemented himself as a quality headliner in his own right, moving dance floors in clubs and festivals alike with his no nonsense style, effortlessly gliding between genres yet always retaining a backbone of pure, unadulterated funkiness. He was a regular at international club night Regrooved and has had a number of festival gigs including multiple appearances at both Blah Blah Blah and Brisbane's iconic Caxton St Seafood and Wine Festival. With interstate gigs galore and regular slots at some of Queensland’s tastiest venues such as Cloudland, Solbar, Laruche, Zuri, Press Club, Empire and Birdee Num Nums one thing is guaranteed, when DKuts is supplying the tunes you are in for a funking good time.
Dastardly Kuts is also an accomplished music producer with releases through Rump Shaker, Breakbeat Paradise, Tru:Funk, Grits N Gravy, Actual Sounds, Sugar Rush, Sol and MK837 records and his bootlegs, mash-ups and re-edits have gained mass appeal with countless websites and blogs featuring his efforts and taking his sound to the world. He is also a member of dj/ production duo Ad'N'Kuts with fellow bass head Aditup, bringing the bass heavy breaks, funk & glitch vibes that has seen them support some huge names in the scene and have the number one selling track on Juno download.
In more recent times he has become a writer for the highly popular Free Breaks Blog, spreading the breaks, bass, glitch hop, future-funk and ghetto-funk gospel and with a number of remixes and an EP in the works for 2015, it certainly looks like there will be no slowing down for this self-professed “funk fiend”.
