Last weekend saw the Cut & Paste: Micro-Festival launch the tenth issue of the Cut & Paste DVD. Kicking things off in the balmy sun at 4pm the Bakery was filled with Perth’s first Silent Micro-Cinema, a Hurben/Planet Clothing collaboration (which had sticky tape horns and limbs hanging from the rafters) and a plethora of vintage and retro game console and canvas hangings adorning the sea containers.

The Micro-Festival saw unique collaborations between Felicity Groom and Diger Rokwell, Naik, Zeke, Kit Pop and KZ the Boogieman from Cosmo Gets, in addition to 6s & 7s playing their album Choose the Sentinel Blooze from beginning to end, as the Panda Band did with their yet to be released album. Soulfister, Abbe May, Rex Monson, Tomas Ford, Mathas, Chris Wheeldon, Gemma Pike and the Cut & Paste Sound System were all on hand to round out the musical entertainment.

The man with his stills camera in hand, Bradley Serls was there to grab everyone in their Micro-Festoval festivities… See if you’re featured in the gallery!

Last Wednesday our good friends Paper Chain and Perth shoe connoisseurs Highs & Lows celebrated a joint birthday at The Bird. The exclusive ‘invite-only’ party featured Naik, Beni Chill and Zeke from the Paper Chain stables as well as a healthy amount of giveaways… with the Cut & Paste family scooping up some sweet new kicks and tees.

Our photographer friend Bradley Serls was down taking snaps of the occasion which you can see below.

Stay tuned for some video footage of the evening popping up in the not to distant future!

KP&ZK // THE FINAL MIX

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010 by John

A month or so ago now we gaffered the Sonys and the Flip down to any available speaker or table that gave us a shot of what was the first live-set by Paper Chain artists Kit Pop and Zeke. What unfolded was forty minutes of turntable, mpc/sampler, acapella musical act…

It’s big bass and heavy shakes which is what the DEADWEIGHT! crew are all about. So sit back and enjoy.

This Friday will see the second installment of DeadWeight! @ The Bird… check out the details here

THE HAPPS IN THE TRAPS //

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010 by John

So sections of the Cut & Paste office have inadvertently been involved in some serious technical issues, resulting in our main MAC tower currently nothing more than an oversized and fragile book stop… So insted of bringing you the full 45min edit of Kit Pop x Zeke filmed at DeadWeight! a few weeks back, as well as a bunch of our Revelation Film Festival interviews with Cory McAbee (Stingray Sam), Jennifer Mass (Wheedle’s Groove), Jim Morton (Russ Meyer’s – Double Bill), Gary & Jeff (Sons of Steel)… we can’t!

So instead I thought we’d have a quick look at what some of the Cut & Paste family have been up to over the last month:

Justin Elwin:

Cut & Paste sound man and Paper Chain founder Justin Elwin (aka Kit Pop) has been working on a new 10×10x1 project… that equates to ten beats over ten days with one mpc. Below is a taste of what’s to come:

The full project will be availabe for free download once completed.
* Word around the office is that story boarding has begun for the ‘official’ film clip to the Kit Pop and Ta-Ku track Bounce, with some pretty crazy ideas being thrown around.

Mat De Koning:

Now where does Mat fit into the Cut & Paste scheme of things is always a tricky one to work out, but essentially he’s our go to festival camera man and the source of most of our skate footage. Along with all his other bits & bobs, Mat has spent the last five years following around some of Perth’s most intriguing creative’s including the affable Will Stoker… Here is a quick edit he did last week for Will Stoker and The Embers- Ten Thousand Horses, includes footage from the Cut & Paste crew’s coverage of the 2010 WAMis

YouTube Preview Image

*I hear a whisper that Will will be lending his vocals to a track by a hot local electronic artist

Dominic Pearce:

Directed by Cut & Paste casual camera/sound man Dom has been hard at work on a bunch on clips recently, including the new one for adult-contemporary super group Basement Birds. I was on board as the on-location production assistant and with a one-day shoot along Brookton Highway this is what manifested:

* I hear that Dom is working on the new Tomas Ford clip…

Once the MAC is back… we will upload some ‘exclusive’ videos shoot on the Flip on-location.

Stay tuned next week for when we see what some of the others boys have been doing… until then check out The Community’s new website – it’s really nice!

DEAD WEIGHT // ZEKE X KIT POP

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010 by John

bsp_04062010_0063

A few weeks back now the young chaps from DEADWEIGHT! dropped the first of what is to be a monthly Bass Music night, of the same name at The Bird. I headed down to check out what Chris and the boys had on offer, as well as to film my Paper Chain buddies Zeke and Kit Pop who were dropping a brand new collab routine this particular evening… think five turntables, MPCs, samplers and music pads with cool fluro lights.

To capture what the boys had been up to I decided to bring down a stack of video cameras (ie. pretty much everything I could find). Including our Sony HDR-FX7, HDR-FX1E and our new wee Flip I located three places around the stage and set-up the three camera rig for the night. You might notice that the boys got the bass so heavy the tripod shakes!

Check the five minute grab we’ve put up here and then make sure you get down for the next DEADWEIGHT at the Bird!

YouTube Preview Image

No Promises BUT we’re hoping to put the whole 45 minutes set online in the next week..or two..or if you comment on this post saying you want us too..

Local photo man about town Bradley Serls was down at The Bird this particular evening so he swung us a bunch of his snaps for you all to look at!

New kids on the block DEADWEIGHT! crash the scene with style tonight as they launch the first of a monthly night by the same name.

When Chris Caravella noticed there was no regular “bass music” nights in our fair city (we’re talking hip-hop, glitch, dubstep, UK funky & future garage) they hit up new music venue The Bird and found an ally in Mike O’Hanlon and so DEADWEIGHT! has come into existence.
