Radiocuts

Somewhere between rich collages and old record samples in an ambitious context, the Radiocuts weaves abstract and blunted beats with subtlety. Formed by musician Mauricio Jr. (Poligamyk and The Last Bastards), and the DJs and producers Gustavo Milanez (Punkyhead) and Marcio Mouse, the trio stands a cross of genres and influences beyond electronic music. In an intelligent cut-and-paste, explores elements of a contemporary music, Abstract Message - the debut album - show a more expansive and less purposeful work, flirting with trip hop, ambient, downtempo, hip hop and jazz without sounding forced. Melancholic sounds. Decelerated. Dense. Backdrop for a more elaborate soundtrack. An imaginary movie.
