Kutiman Samples Amateur Youtube Musicians to Create “Give It Up”

kutiman-giveitup

Ophir Kutiel aka Kutiman, is the Youtube generation’s DJ Shadow. He scours Youtube for obscure musical treasures; kids playing piano, guitar tutorials, anything he can use to make a song. Somehow he is able to weave the unrelated clips into something completely new. I’ve blogged about him numerous times but it all started with his project Thru You.

5 years later, Kutiman is set to release his follow up, Thru You Too, and his first single “Give It Up” is a masterpiece. Watch the video below!

  • the editing here is almost as good as the composition – the choice to leave in the parts like where the singer speaks and the trumpeter picks up the camera all add another dimension to the work

    So good.
